Vue Basics

The Vue Instance

The Root of All Vue

var app = new Vue({
    el: '#app'

    el: '#app',

    data: {
        myVariableOne: 'something cool',
        myVariableTwo: 'something even cooler'
    }
});

Defining Data


var app = new Vue({
    el: '#app',

    data: {
        myVariableOne: 'something cool',
        myVariableTwo: 'something even cooler'
    },
    
    methods: {
        celebrate: function () {
            alert('CELEBRATING!');
