I found Heroku to be a great option to get ExpressJS up and running with very little hustle. The free tier is great, but I'd recommend to set up a cronjob to visit your site every few minutes so that the server stays awake. Netlify was the option to host the front-end because doing the server side rendering on #Heroku would have taken a little more time than I'd like to. For the moment pre-rendering the app with prerender-spa-plugin is enough to help with #seo. Puppeteer was my choice over other options because it made it easier to scrape websites made on ASP.NET which is what I needed in this case. And Vue.js is my top choice at the moment because it's really beginner friendly and it has a lot of the features I like about Angular 2 and React. vuex is a must in most of the app I build.
For those who want to develop business in China, Vue.js would be your first choice. I never thought Vue.js is better than Angular 2 or React , but for project language choosing, sometimes you should not only consider technology advance, but also must consider human resource market.
In China, there are far more engineers familiar with Vue.js than React and Angular, that means you can easily hire some front end engineers with much cheaper price. The reason why Vue.js is so popular in China is just because the community, as Vue.js author You Yuxi is Chinese, the community around Vue.js is mainly in Chinese language and most engineers speaks Mandarin, thus they can get questions and problems solved at first time.
From technical side, Vue.js is more like a simplified Angular, syntax are mostly same,
v-for. The most convenience part is Vue.js put
css in one single
vue file so that you will not have to create a separate folder to include 3 files as Angular does.
To be frankly, I love Vue.js especially when I need to quickly create a small project contains only 1 or 2 pages even 5 pages, Vue.js would be the best choice, it's small and fast. For a really big and huge project, I will consider Angular, after all, there are far more complicated and interesting plugins to play with, Angular need more time, more code, more complex, but we senior engineer is living for some sophisticated code which only we can understand and set barriers for other beginners, right?
For developing our #frontend applications, we decided to use Vue.js . Being such an easy to learn library, compared to React for example, it made everything so easy. At first we started with Polymer but the existing tooling and small community at the time made us look for alternatives.
We are phasing out jQuery and jQuery UI in favour or Vue.js and @Vue-cli so we can support building a modern, well-architectured frontend.
