What is Vue.js? Vue.js is a progressive JavaScript framework for building user interfaces. In short, it’s a tool that helps developers build more maintainable and testable codebase. From

“Vue (pronounced /vjuː/, like view) is a progressive framework for building user interfaces. Unlike other monolithic frameworks, Vue is designed from the ground up to be incrementally adoptable. The core library is focused on the view layer only, and is easy to pick up and integrate with other libraries or existing projects. On the other hand, Vue is also perfectly capable of powering sophisticated Single-Page Applications when used in combination with modern tooling and supporting libraries.”

Like the other JavaScript frameworks Angular and React, Vue.js allows more dynamic and user-friendly experiences with less headache for the developers. But Vue.js was created in response to some of the shortcomings of these existing frameworks and offers simplified and easier to learn experience. Here is a great comparison of the three frameworks.
