VueJS is an open-source web application framework, created in 2014 by former Google employee Evan You. Its purpose is to make building user interfaces and single-page applications simpler. VueJS offers a library of tools, components, and plugins to help developers construct projects quickly and proficiently.
VueJS is a “progressive framework” which means that it can be used either as a library or as a complete framework. This gives developers the freedom to choose their level of abstraction and complexity for each project. Therefore, VueJS can be used for both small and complex projects.
So, is VueJS a fullstack framework? The answer to this depends on how you define “fullstack.” Generally, a fullstack framework provides both the frontend and backend development tools. Although VueJS does supply a wide range of tools for the frontend, it does not offer any backend development tools. Consequently, VueJS is not considered a fullstack framework.
That being said, VueJS can be used to construct fullstack applications. Developers can use the frontend library and components to build the user interface and then employ other frameworks, such as Node.js, to create the backend. This approach permits developers to take advantage of the convenience and scalability of VueJS while still having the ability to develop fullstack apps.
