  • Allen Moore: Vue.js + WordPress

    WordCamp Raleigh 2017Speaker: Allen Moore

    June 4, 2017 — The popularity of JavaScript has lead to an ecosystem that’s vibrant, growing, and to be honest, somewhat out of control. Each day leads to a new framework labeled as the next great thing, but each framework presents it’s own unique set of pros, cons, and frustrations.

    In this talk, we will look at Vue.js, one of the most popular JavaScript frameworks available. In 2016, stateofjs.com conducted a survey where over 89% of the surveyed developers gave Vue.js a satisfactory rating, which rates it as the second highest rated framework behind React, which received a rating of 92%. We will look at real world examples of how Vue.js can be integrated into a WordPress project for the front end, the back end, and interaction with the WordPress Rest API.
