Am I the only one to think that libraries like Bootstrap, Vuetify, Materialize, Foundation are too much sometimes ?

Most of the time you are loading all the library and using 10% of it. And on that 10% you are modifying 90% of it.

I feel like using grid and pure CSS / JS are enough and cleaner.

Agree. It's Newton's first law in action -

1) inertia: Every body develops in a straight line with the same tools learnt in the past unless an external force is applied.

Hi guys! I'm building web/mobile apps connected to a Symfony API and so I'm looking for an easy, customizable and scalable way to build a sweet, clean and modern interface.

Advice is welcome :)

Quasar Framework

I've built multiple apps on Quasar, and it's been a joy right from the start. Here's what I like about it: 1. It has a rich set of components and plugins that fits every need. They are all accessible, keyboard friendly, very customizable, have slots for every part of them 2. It plays nice with other components 3. It has a great cli that you can use to automate things and the build process 4. It compiles to multiple environments, including pwa, electron, etc 5. It has a very active community of you need support. 6. It helps you keep a good folder structure for your project

The only thing that you might consider a downside is the look and feel of the components. In the end they are following the material guidelines. If that's not a constraint for you, I'd choose it without a doubt

Quasar Framework

Knowing that you require scalable solution for multiple platforms, you'd find Quasar Framework to be quite fit, because it's more than components... QF is also a wrapper for all the platform deploys: write once, port to everything (kind of extreme claim here, but the count of build types there is exhausting enough today). Some Quasar's components may seem confusing at first compared to Vuetify library, which is a lot richer than QF. However, if you and your team will get grip of it, that's fine. What I love about both Vuetify and QF is that they rely on Vue, and if you are familiar with it, either tool will be a joy, if applied in the appropriate scope! As long as Vue makes it clear how to define your own components and you have designs, there should be no problem.

Hey @Rodion, thanks for your advice and details about Quasar !

We are in a situation where we develop everything from scratch on VueJS : like building our own library of components to match exactly our needs and going away from material design. You know when you are using this kind of library sometimes you want to integrate or modify some stuff and things start to become crazy complex ... more complex than developing your own ...

This is very appealing to have the multi-platform support .... we are also looking into Flutter because we think that mobile UI / UX is too much different from web ...

Anyway I guess we need to replicate one of our app on Quasar and see if it fit for us.

Thanks again for your advice

Hello Varun S,

Project-1 : If the Laravel part is an API, you should check Flutter or Quasar Framework for your frontend in order to reduce the development time and process.

Thanks for your comment, I like Flutter for some extend.

but not quasar since I am not a big fan of vue.js due to lack of much community support. Thanks

Hello Nitch193,

That's a great project ! I would recommend 2 options for the backend :

  1. Symfony with API Platform bundle

  2. Doing something with Firebase

Hello Raseke,

I would go Symfony with API Platform bundle. It's super powerful, the security part is awesome and the documentation is great. At Alpsify, we are currently using Symfony for ours APIs and VueJS / Flutter for frontends when developing custom stuff.

Go check this tutorial if you are going this way : https://symfonycasts.com/screencast/api-platform

Cheers !
