Vue.js vs Yolk: What are the differences?

Developers describe Vue.js as "Reactive Components for Modern Web Interfaces". Vue.js is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API. On the other hand, Yolk is detailed as "A user interface library built on RxJS and Virtual-dom". Yolk is a small library built on top of Virtual DOM and RxJS. It exposes a very limited API so that you don't have to spend weeks getting up to speed. Yolk components are just plain functions that return JSX.

Vue.js and Yolk belong to "Javascript UI Libraries" category of the tech stack.

Vue.js and Yolk are both open source tools. Vue.js with 143K GitHub stars and 20.7K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Yolk with 950 GitHub stars and 35 GitHub forks.

          React
          Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
          jQuery
          jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.
          Bootstrap
          Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web.
          Angular 2
          Angular is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
          AngularJS
          AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.

And all this with just one tool!: #Vscode I have used Atom and Sublime Text in the past and they are very good too, but for me now is just vscode. I think the combination of vscode with the free available extensions that the community is creating makes a powerful tool and that's why vscode became the most popular IDE for software development. You can match it to your own needs in a couple of minutes. Did I mention you can style it your way? Amazing tool!

          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.

          Vue.js

          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, ng-if became v-if, ng-for became v-for. The most convenience part is Vue.js put html+js+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.

          The JavaScript build pipeline is supported by Webpack , and includes tools like ESLint and Babel , so we can properly support the latest ES/JS versions, with ES6 as the minimum baseline.

          I recommend using Angular 2 when moving from Angular 1 if you are looking for a fully featured framework solution. Neither Vue.js nor React just work out of the box and require creating your own components from scratch as well as the kind of support architecture available in Angular 2 out of the box. However if you are looking for something lightweight to add reusable components to an existing application Vue.js and React are more ideal to that end.

          I use Vue.js because I find the resulting code cleaner, more concise and easier to read.

          However if you are looking for the broader community and wider corporate level adoption, go for react. Both work well and I have used both successfully. For me the preference for vue is a matter of personal taste with regards to code aesthetics.

          Vue.js
          Vue.js

          I use Vue.js because it allows me to keep dev momentum. Vue includes many things out of the box that React doesn't include while remaining "lighter" than angular. For example: - Vue single file components include template, logic and styling out of the box. It also allows you to use language parsers such as Pug to write your component template and SCSS for styling. - Vue uses a simple Object to initialize an instance - Vue has support for transitions out of the box (say, for example, a fade in-out between component swaps, or adding an element to a list) - Vue has observers and two way binding like angular - Vue can conditionally render content in templates via template conditional tags

          However, Vue is opinionated because of all those points. React is much more abstract and much closer to actual javascript. - React's state is a variable that lives in the constructor of the class component. - Reacts components are JS native classes or functions. - Devs are free to implement transitions, styled-components on their own. Styled-components however, is not as intuitive as Vue's CSS/SCSS support. - React is a bit less intuitive for conditional rendering, as it relies on methods or ternary operators to render template conditionally. - JSX actually compiles down to javascript.

          It really depends on your needs. Vue is most popular on Github but React has a huge demand in hiring (Mostly to convert existing angular or legacy applications to React). React is backed by Facebook and has more highly skilled contributors than Vue, though not to detract a single bit from Vue's own skilled contributors. If you're looking for developers, it's much easier to find seasoned react devs, at least as of Jul 2019. If you're a marketing or news agency that has deadlines, Vue's efficiencies may be the best, however, a large corporation may favour React since it has more support and is more of an "open slate" so to speak.

          Back in 2015, my company had a back-office dashboard that was originally built in AngularJS 1. Since Angular 2 presented drastic changes we decided to rethink the options and we looked at React and Vue.js. Besides, at the time, Vue had basically only one developer, its structure (100% oriented to components) and also its backward compatibility focus (Angular 1 to 2 no more) we preferred it against React cause it seemed more straightforward, clean and with a small learning curve. Now 4-5 years later we are very happy with our choice.

          I find using Vue.js to be easier (more concise / less boilerplate) and more intuitive than writing React. However, there are a lot more readily available React components that I can just plug into my projects. I'm debating whether to use Vue.js or React for an upcoming project that I'm going to use to help teach a friend how to build an interactive frontend. Which would you recommend I use?

          I've used both Vue.js and React and I would stick with React. I know that Vue.js seems easier to write and its much faster to pick up however as you mentioned above React has way more ready made components you can just plugin, and the community for React is very big.

          It might be a bit more of a steep learning curve for your friend to learn React over Vue.js but I think in the long run its the better option.

          Having developed in both Vue.js and React, I agree with your assessment of Vue. It does feel light and easier to understand and therefore learn. Seeing that Vue has some genetic roots with React, I would say start your friend out on Vue. If they need to learn React later, that should give them a good foundation. If you have a Pluralsight subscription, look for my course on Vue.js and feel free to use the demo project as a starting point.

          I chose to use Vue.js a few years ago mainly for the easy learning curve. I have no experience with React, so I won't make any comparison here. Regarding available components, I never felt locked in because of Vue when looking for components. It happens that a component I wish to use is not available as a Vue component (and nobody published any Vue wrapper for it), but in such cases I was able to quickly hack a Vue wrapper component. In the end I don't think a decision to choose one framework over another should be made solely because of the number of components available. (And not all components in either framework is maintained, bug free, documented or easy to use)

          React is great, Vue.js is also great. But I'm personally using React, because React is changing the way I look at how JavaScript should be. This is a really big plus for me. Vue is good, but it's just another alternative. Also, too many big companies are using React, that means you can trust it for big projects.

          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.
