We think VueJS is great. It's the main tool used to generate the client-side UI of our updated admin system, as well as being used in other smaller projects. The possibilities that VueJS brings to the table, means that we can quickly create rich and app-like interfaces and experiences.

Kuro is the browser facing portion of shiro. Vue.js is used for rendering the interface of https://shiro.host as the frontend is client side rendered.

Vue.js is my front-end framework of choice. It's light, fast, and extensible. Its simplicity and reactivity system make it an absolute pleasure to use and it has a wonderful, ever-growing community.
