The Vue Cookbook
I’m extremely excited to announce that the Vue Cookbook is officially in beta! For the past few months, the Vue team has been writing, and editing and accepting PRs from the community to build a new section of our docs called the Cookbook. Each recipe stands on its own, meaning that recipes can focus on one specific aspect of Vue or something that integrates with Vue, and do a small deep dive into that subject. We can then include more complex examples, combining features in interesting ways.
One of my favorite parts of the cookbook is the Alternative Patterns section of each recipe. Usually when people write blog posts or document something, they’re also selling you on the concept that they’re explaining. In the cookbook, we strive to consider that we’re all building different kinds of applications and websites, and thus a variety of choices will be valid, given divergent scenarios. The cookbook spends a little time in each recipe weighing the tradeoffs, and considering when one might need another path.
For advanced features, we assume some ecosystem knowledge. For example, if you want to use single-file components in Webpack, we don’t explain how to configure the non-Vue parts of the Webpack config. In the cookbook, we have the space to explore these ecosystem libraries in more depth—at least to the extent that is universally useful for Vue developers.
This section will continue to be in development! We have more recipes that we’re writing, we’re still accepting PRs, and the more community involvement, the richer a resource it becomes! I hope you enjoy it and find it useful.
