Vue’s 5th aniversary! 🎆 Vue v2.6 "Macross" released! 🎉 Official Vue-CLI plugin guide and more

Hello!

What a week! 🎉

The 3rd of February was the 5th anniversary of Vue! Then the day after, on the 4th – Vue v2.6 was officialy released with tons of new features. And today we are celebrating the first day of the Year of the Pig according to the traditional Chinese calendar.

Given that Vue was first released in 2014, it means Vue’s Chinese zodiac sign is a Horse! And you know what – I’m also a horse. Coincidence? I don’t think so! 🙃

Happy new year!

#4: New v-slot directive in Vue.js 2.6.0

Vue 2.6 ships with an additional syntax for using slots (compatibile with the upcoming 3.0 release). Now instead of using both slot and slot-scope, you can use the unified v-slot directive. It also comes with a handy shortcut in the form of a #. For example: v-slot:rejected=“status” is the same as #rejected=“status”, which in turn is the equivalent of slot=“rejected” slot-scope=“status” using the old syntax.
