Node + Vue: The Awesome Pairing

Developing web applications today is not as hard as it used to be a decade ago. Your systems are already optimized, and there are hundreds of open-source models that you can find to commit to this endeavour. But on top of all the software used for web development, Node.js and Vue.js work best in tandem to create an automated application that does all its regular work and goes beyond your expectations with as few bugs as possible.

What is Node.js? 

Node.js is a very flexible solution used for multiple purposes, from building an Angular application to implementing a real-time one. Because it is used in all Javascript projects, this technology is also spreading as an API platform. It was developed by Ryan Dahl, a Software Engineer at Google Brain, and he also developed Deno JavaScript and TypeScript runtime. Node.js is cross-platform and open-source, which executes JavaScript code on the server side, i.e., outside the web browser. Due to its single-threaded nature, it is mainly used for event-driven, non-blocking servers. A non-blocking I/O model makes it lightweight and efficient. Hence it is best for data-intensive real-time applications. Traditional websites and back-end API services use it. 

What is Vue.js?

It is an open-source progressive JavaScript framework mainly used for building UIs and single-page applications. It was created by Evan and funded by the community on Patreon to develop VueJS. It is compatible with most modern technologies, and because of the gentle learning curve and scalability, it gained much popularity. VueJS follows the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) architectural pattern, where ViewModel has a ‘Vue’ instance and View and Model are bound by two-way data binding. It utilizes a virtual DOM, and in terms of API and design, Vue is easier to learn than AngularJS. As the concerns of routing and state were handled in ReactJS, in the same way, Vue handles it by associate libraries.

Both of this software have their advantages and disadvantages. Node, for example, has a high learning curve, cross-platform and open-source back-end framework that executes JavaScript code on the server side and is written in C/C++. Vue has a faster learning curve and is a structural, open-source JavaScript framework used for building UIs and single-page applications and written in javascript and Typescript. 

Using both software, you can design a smooth-running web application that can direct users to their favourite interface and showcase carefully crafted and data-driven solutions without hindrance. Your pages will not crash, no matter the number of users, and the automation scalability for your apps will be scalable for you to expand.
