Vue takes a more minimal approach than Angular or React, however; it relies more on traditional web technologies (e.g. it allows JSX but encourages templating in HTML) and the use of outside libraries to complement its core functionalities. This gives it a faster learning curve than many other frameworks, and allows developers to continue using their preferred tools to accomplish tasks within Vue.
Web developers familiar with other front-end frameworks will find many familiar features in Vue, from a component-based paradigm and the virtual DOM to conditional rendering with directives such as
v-hide. These features are combined with innovations such as single-page templates and computed component properties.
Vue 2.X retains 90% of the API of 1.X, with the most significant changes involving renaming of component lifecycle hooks and the removal of support for fragment component instances. A migration helper is available for developers who want to upgrade from earlier versions of Vue.
