Vue.js is a fast, performant, and approachable JavaScript framework that seems to have caught the eye of a lot of individuals in the JavaScript community.

In the latest episode of JAMstack Radio, I chat with Jacob Schatz and Ben Mischenko (NetlifyCMS contributor). Jacob explains how he went about deciding on a JavaScript framework for GitLab and what drew him to Vue.js. He recalls his first project for evaluating Vue’s scalability and shares his thoughts on Vue’s strengths and limitations.
