State of Vue 2021, Vite v2 released; Vuex 5 RFC; Vuetify for Vue 3 in alpha and more!

Welcome back!

Those last 3 weeks have been truly crazy! First of all, Evan’s State of Vuenion 2021 talk at Vue.js Amsterdam where he is covering the recent developments in the Vue ecosystem. How Vue is doing (like NASA using it to drive their mission control system), new releases, and future plans! The recording ends with the announcement and highlights from Monterail’s annual State of Vue report, which you can download here.

Vite – the frontend build tool everyone is crazy about has hit v2. It is a big milestone for the project as it is no longer limited to Vue only (though I would recommend using it for Vue projects starting now).

Next – Vuex 5. Wait, what? Five? Hasn’t version 4 been released just recently? Yes, it was, but it was a mostly backward-compatible port of Vuex 3 dedicated to Vue 3.0.

Version 5 on the other hand is a completely new state management library. Although it still keeps some ideas from the Vuex you know (and the name), it presents a new approach to state management. Why? The Vuex team has learned a lot from the limitations and pain-points of the current implementation and decided it is time to move forward with new ideas. Make sure to read the RFC and join the discussion.

That’s not all! Read the stories below for more news regarding i18n, Vuetify, Nuxt and the upcoming (free!) VueConf.us conference happening on April 14th!

Kind regards,

Damian Dulisz

Announcing Vite 2.0

Vite (French word for "fast", pronounced /vit/) is a new kind of build tool for frontend web development. Think a pre-configured dev server + bundler combo, but leaner and faster. It leverages browser's native ES modules support and tools written in compile-to-native languages like esbuild to deliver a snappy and modern development experience.

The Vuex team is now ready to present you their vision of the upcoming v5 of Vuex – the official Vue state management library. The first RFC covers the new architecture as well as differences compared to Vuex 3 & 4. Check it out and join the discussion!

Announcing Vue I18n 9.0

Vue I18n is the most popular internationalization library for Vue and it just hit version 9.0. It’s a complete rewrite with lots of new features!

The new major version of Vue I18n provides Layered modules, Hybrid APIs, Message Compiler, Pre-compilation, Vue Devtools integration, Bundle size optimization, and a solid foundation for long-term future iterations of this library.

Storybook for Vue 3

Storybook now supports Vue 3.0! Storybook is an open source tool for building UI components in isolation, while also serving as both documentation and can integrate with testing tools.
