Vue.js Devtools 5.0 are here! 2 new Vue.js RFCs; Multiple Vue.js Amsterdam talks published; Slides from VueConf.us and more!


what an amazing week! Just got back home from VueConf.us. It was such a great conference. Interesting presentations, amazing people and so much fun in general. 🦄💃

As for news: The new 5.0 version of Vue.js Devtools has been released! It comes with 2 new tabs – routing and performance, which allows you to measure your application for potential bottlenecks. It also ships with dark mode support 🌒.

Also, there are 2 RFCs to Vue:

One is the advanced reactivity API, which I’m extremely excited about. It should allow you to create observable objects, watchers and computed properties, without actually creating a new Vue instance. This might prove extremely useful, especially for library authors. I imagine Vuelidate could benefit from it a lot.

The 2nd RFC is about dynamic lifecycle hooks injection. This should make it possible for you to conditionally add or remove lifecycle hooks within your component’s code.

Oh, and 12 talks from Vue.js Amsterdam are already available. Check them out!
