Hey there,

I’m glad to let you know that I’m finally back to writing the newsletter after my travels and conference preparations. I’m sure you might have not missed me much, since An did an amazing job during my absence. He’s pretty amazing, don’t you agree?

VueConf Toronto has been amazing – definitely one of my favorite conferences ever! If you haven’t been there last week, make sure to get there next year. Great talks, cozy atmosphere and amazing people! Check out the Twitter #VueToronto hashtag to get a feeling how the event looked like.

All the slides are already available here.

By the way – here’s one of my favorite tweets by Sarah Dayan that sums up and answer to one of the questions asked towards the core team during the Q&A session.

Hope you have a great week!

An Early Look at the Vue 3 Composition API in the Wild

Here’s another great article on the Composition API that goes beyond basic examples and instead refactors a rather big component coming from a real project. It really highlights one of the biggest benefits of the new API – a clean way to separate different functionalities of a component and allowing for sharing those with other components.

Reducing Redundant Repetition

Another great article by Michael, who I finally had a chance to meet at VueConfTO a few days ago. This week, he writes about extracting repeatable code and what to look for when building abstractions.

Reusable Functional Vue.js Components with Tailwind CSS

Tailwind CSS is a hot topic right now in the Vue community not without a reason. It’s super flexible and easy to use. Check out this new article by Markus. It includes a very useful trick on how to make sure PurgeCSS won’t remove some of your dynamic CSS classes. Good read!

React developers will love the Vue Composition API

An interesting article on the Vue Composition API from the perspective of a React developer. It talks a bit about the differences with React Hooks and walks through a refactor process from the options-based API.

HYS #1 - Quasar 1.3.0

Scott goes through some of the recent features of Quasar. If you’re using the framework or are just curious about it – read the article. It’s amazing how the framework grew from when I first heard about it a few years ago.
