Problems are with Frameworks

JSDC Taiwan 2016 / #jsdc2016 / @blakenewman

Choose your framework as if you will need to change it after six months

JSDC Taiwan 2016 / #jsdc2016 / @blakenewman

Don't be a slave to Frameworks

// getUsers factory
getUsers.$inject = ['$http'];

function getUsers($http) {
    return $http.get('api/v1/users').then(function (response) {
        return response.data;
    });
}

app.factory('getUsers', getUsers);

// Home controller
homeController.$inject = ['$scope', 'getUsers'];

function homeController($score, getUsers) {
    getUsers().then(function (users) {
        $scope.users = users;
    });
}

app.controller('home', homeController);

// getUsers es6 module
export default async function getUsers(){
    const { json } = await fetch('api/v1/users');
    return json();
};

// Home controller
import getUsers from './getUsers';

homeController.$inject = ['$scope'];

async function homeController($scope) {
    $scope.users = await getUsers();
}

app.controller('home', homeController);

Exploring Vue.js

JSDC Taiwan 2016 / #jsdc2016 / @blakenewman

What does Vue deliver?

Library for the View layer

Components with reactivity

Extendable via plugins

Lightweight

Simplicity

Testable

JSDC Taiwan 2016 / #jsdc2016 / @blakenewman

How does Vue.js work?

 

Reactive data-binding system for a  Data-driven view

DOM in sync with data

Object.defineProperty

JSDC Taiwan 2016 / #jsdc2016 / @blakenewman

How does Vue.js work?

Component System helps with small abstraction layer

 

Component loosely modeled after the Web Components spec

 

Implements the Slot API and the special attribute is
