Why is Vue.js So Popular for Building Powerful Native Apps?

While there are too many great JavaScript frameworks powering millions of websites and native apps, the most popular ones make regular rounds in the majority of discussions. After the phenomenal popularity of Angular, React, and a few others, the promising new kid among them, is the Vue.js. While the new technologies keep coming, some stand out simply because of their ease of use, scalability and a lot of elements that make the job of developers easier.

Vue.js for past several years gained tremendous popularity for building robust native apps perfect in user experience. Vue.js coupled up with React Native also gave birth to a native development script called Vue Native. Together they make the best solutions for building both cross-platform, web and native apps across the niches.

Here through the length of this post, we are going to explain the key reasons to use Vue.js for native apps. But before that, we need to explain the differences between VueJS and Vue Native and how they can work together for native app development.

Understanding the differences: VueJs vs Vue Native 

Both Vue.js and Vue Native frameworks can be used for building native apps, and their principle strengths remain the same. But comparatively, Vue Native makes the job a little easier by making things further easier for native app development. Vue Native is basically created to connect the VueJs with React Native.

Some developers compiled together components of React, React Native and Vue files. Vue Native was born burn as a fork of these compiled components and files. While Vue.js and Vue Native have too many similarities and commonnesses, a few differences between them are equally worth considering.

● The Vue Native allows you to use the NativeScript-Vue npm package for all mobile app development projects and you do not need to use the regular Vue.js library.

● Just because the NativeScript of Vue Native does not have any dependence on the manipulation of DOM, the developers can easily come up with their Vue instance without requiring to attach it to the <div>. This helps you start with the development project sans the additional el parameter.

● The new Vue Native allows you to create the templates as per the need of the platform. This allows using semantic HTML for the web and NativeScript modules with XML for mobile app development projects.

What makes VueJs so popular?

Vue.js as soon as it started as a journey became famous for building dynamic and performance savvy apps across multiple niches. Let us first take a look at the key benefits of VueJS that make developers all over the globe prefer it.
