In this episode we discuss our journey from static and CMS driven sites to reactive frameworks, specifically Vue.js.

Segment 1 - Static to Reactive

  • Started by creating simple static sites - no need for reactive elements
  • When dynamic/reactive content was needed we would use document.createElement

Segment 2 - CMS to Reactive

  • We would use Wordpress, CouchCMS, or Webflow for any content management that our users would need
  • Eventually elements became too varied and a dynamic solution was needed - reactive frameworks
  • The "Hub" presented a unique issue of not having a standard layout while still being "posts" (the episode clarifies this point)

Segment 3 - How We Plan to Use Vue.js

  • Quick start guide for people to get up and running
  • HexDash a collaborative project that people can contribute to
  • Vue.js components - great for reusability

Segment 4 - Matt's Experience Getting Quickly Started with Vue.js
