A Vue application is a client-side web application that creates web pages using a reactive data model and a component-based architecture. Here is an illustration of a Vue application in action:
- A URL is typed into the browser to send a request to the server for a web page.
- An HTML template linked to the root Vue instance is rendered in the browser. Other nested Vue components are present in the template. The Vue component system is used to define each component as a self-contained unit of functionality.
- The data properties of the component are set up with setters and getters so that Vue can track changes to the data because it employs a reactive data model.
- The component’s event handler is activated when a user interacts with the program, such as by clicking a button, and this modifies the component’s data properties.
- Instead of requiring the user to reload the entire page, Vue employs a technology known as a “watcher” that monitors changes in the data and updates the related portions of the template.
Reusable and modular UI components are made possible by Vue’s component-based architecture, and the application’s performance is increased by its reactive data model’s reduction in the amount of DOM updates. The API for Vue is straightforward, understandable, and simple to use.
