143Tuesday, May 28, 2019All VueConf.US talks available; Vue 3.0: Abandoning the Class Syntax; What’s next for Nuxt?
I hope you had a great weekend!
Last week we had some pretty significant decisions made in the core team – namely to drop the Class API syntax for Vue 3.0. Don’t feel sad though, the TypeScript support will still be pretty amazing – we care about that a lot. And there are composition functions coming which introduction is something I look forward the most when it comes to Vue core.
Read this comment for more details.
If you’re still sad – all the talks from VueConf.US have been published – check them out. So much great content!
Also if you wonder, what’s there to come for Nuxt.js, there’s a great interview with Sebastien Chopin on exactly that.
[Abandoned] Class API proposal by yyx990803 · vuejs/rfcs · GitHub
If you have been following the Vue’s RFCs you probably have seen the Class API syntax proposal to create Vue components using JS classes. However, after weeks long discussions, the core team decided to drop the Class syntax altogether. There are several reasons for that, which you can read in linked comment.
Don’t worry though, Vue 3.0 will still come with superb TypeScript support and a new, extremely powerful composition mechanism, currently dubbed composition functions. Dropping the class will also allow for smaller and more performant codebase.
