Try out Vue 3.0-alpha now; GraphQL with Composition-API? Check out Vue-Apollo v4 and Villus and more!

Hello,

I have some pretty great news for you! Have you already tried running Vue 3.0-alpha build? That wasn’t that easy up until recently. But now we have vue-cli-plugin-vue-next! 🔥

This makes it as easy as adding a new plugin to your Vue-CLI based app. It takes care of configuring the webpack to use a new .vue files compiler. Certainly not something you should do on production, but if you would like to try things like Proxy-based reactivity or Suspense – this is probably the best way to do that.

Working with GraphQL and Apollo will most likely got even better once Vue 3.0 is released. Natalia Tepluhina has written a great article that shows how to migrate a Vue-Apollo v3 app to v4, which uses composition-API. But if you don’t need all of Apollo, you can also take a look at Villus – a tiny GraphQL client created by Abdelraham Awad.

Also, if you happen to struggle with unit tests in Vue, there is a chance you might find the needed answers in the Vue Testing Handbook by Lachlan Miller! Make sure to take a look!

Enjoy!
