Often when starting a new project, people add a lot of dependencies to their project. When I ask them why they added a certain dependency I get an answer like: “that’s how it’s done” or “that’s how I’ve learned to do it”.

This often results in a lot of bloat in these projects while actually using a small part of the dependency. The same goes for Vuex even though you don’t necessarily need it.

Let me start off with saying that Vuex is a very useful, cool and powerful tool and I’ve used it often in Vue (2) projects. So…

These days animation is used a lot in websites. Especially elements that animate when they enter the view have gained massive popularity. It isn’t that difficult to understand why as it looks awesome. The landing page of GitHub is an excellent example of how cool this can be.

Luckily, it’s actually very easy to set up and with the newly created CLI it‘s now even more pleasing to use.

Vue CLI requirements
