Today the Ionic team announces the general availability of Ionic Vue, a native Vue version of Ionic Framework that makes it easy to build apps for iOS, Android, and the web as a Progressive Web App (PWA) with one Vue codebase.
Check out the announcement Tweet
Ionic Vue was built to take advantage of all the great new features that shipped in Vue 3, including “improved performance, smaller bundle sizes, better TypeScript integration, new APIs for tackling large scale use cases, and a solid foundation for long-term future iterations of the Vue framework”.
Combining the benefits of both Ionic and Vue, Ionic Vue offers a great way for web developers to build fast, lightweight mobile applications in very little time, backed by a supportive worldwide community.
Here are a few highlights of what’s included with this release:
- Built with Vue 3. Ionic Vue is built with Vue 3. This means that developers building with Ionic Vue will benefit from all the improvements and features in Vue 3, like the new Composition API.
- Vue Router Integration. We’ve created a router integration that builds on top of Vue’s router. Meaning you’ll get first class routing out of the box, as well as Ionic’s transitions and animations.
- Ionic CLI support. Building a new Ionic Vue project with the CLI means you’ll not only get a great app out of the box, but it will get you started with best practices already applied.
