Vue + TypeScript: A Match Made in Your Code Editor

Vue is so hot right now and I’ve been thinking of doing a serious project with it since quite a while, so when the opportunity popped up, I hopped in. But there was a little problem — one of the requirements of the project was to write it in TypeScript. At first, I was super stressed about how I was going to ever get started on this combo, but vue-cli made it so easy. I’d be lying if I said this ride was super smooth. There were frustrations, hours of staring at the screen and some fistbumps with my...

What’s wrong with CSS-in-JS?

Brad Frost thinks it’s: Lack of portability Context Switching Flushing best practices down the toilet In the spirit of good-ol-fashioned blog-and-response, here’s: Brian Muenzenmeyer’s response Micah Godbolt’s response I’d like to point out that “CSS-in-JS” is an umbrella term, and that there are lots of takes on actual implementations of this. It’s possible to like one approach and not another. My guess is we’ll end up with a split down the middle as a best practice someday. When we write styles, we will always make a choice. Is this a global style? Am I, on purpose, leaking this style across the entire site? Or, am I writing CSS that is specific to this component? CSS will be split in half between these two. Component-specific styles will be scoped and bundled with the component and used as needed. Direct Link to Article — Permalink The post What’s wrong with CSS-in-JS? appeared first on CSS-Tricks....

Native-Like Animations for Page Transitions on the Web

Some of the most inspiring examples I’ve seen of front end development have involved some sort of page transitions that look slick, like they do in mobile apps. However, even though the imagination for these types of interactions seem to abound, their presence on actual sites that I visit do not. There are a number of ways to accomplish these types of movement! Here’s what we’ll be building: Demo Site GitHub Repo We’ll build out the simplest possible distallation of these concepts so that you can apply them to any application, and then I’ll also provide the code for this more complex app if you’d like to dive in. Today we’ll be discussing how to create them with Vue and Nuxt. There are a lot of moving parts in page transitions and animations (lol I kill me), but don’t worry! Anything we don’t have time to cover in the article, we’ll link off to with other resources. Why? The web has come under critique in recent years for appearing “dated” in comparison to native iOS and Android app experiences. Transitioning between two states can reduce cognitive load for your user, as when someone is scanning a page, they have to create a mental map of everything that’s contained on it. When we move from page to page, the user has to remap that entire space. If an element is...

VuePress Static Site Generator

VuePress is a new tool from Vue creator Evan You that spins up Vue projects that are more on the side of websites based on content and markup than progressive web applications and does it with a few strokes of the command line. We talk a lot about Vue around here, from a five-part series on getting started with it to a detailed implementation of a serverless checkout cart But, like anything new, even the basics of getting started can feel overwhelming and complex. A tool like VuePress can really lower the barrier to entry for many who (like me) are still wrapping our heads around the basics and tinkering with the concepts. There are alternatives, of course! For example, Nuxt is already primed for this sort of thing and also makes it easy to spin up a Vue project. Sarah wrote up a nice intro to Nuxt and it’s worth checking out, particularly if your project is a progressive web application. If you’re more into React but love the idea of static site generating, there is Gatsby. Direct Link to Article — Permalink The post VuePress Static Site Generator appeared first on CSS-Tricks....

List Rendering and Vue’s v-for Directive

List rendering is one of the most commonly used practices in front-end web development. Dynamic list rendering is often used to present a series of similarly grouped information in a concise and friendly format to the user. In almost every web application we use, we can see lists of content in numerous areas of the app. In this article we’ll gather an understanding of Vue’s v-for directive in generating dynamic lists, as well as go through some examples of why the key attribute should be used when doing so. Since we’ll be explaining things thoroughly as we start to...
