9 Companies Using Vue.js in 2021

Vue.js is an open-source front-end JavaScript framework created in 2014 by a lone developer, Evan You. Since its inception, it has gained massive popularity among developers and companies alike. Let’s take a look at how that happened and who uses Vue in 2021.

Why are companies using Vue.js?

Top reasons to use Vue.js

  • Its popularity means that there are many ready-to-use modules and libraries, as well as an active community of devoted developers who maintain and update useful and organized documentation that can be used when encountering any issue.
  • Vue is remarkably simple to learn by all JavaScript developers, and a large talent pool already exists, making recruitment for your project less demanding.
  • The Vue.js code can be written quickly, especially by experienced developers, and it makes the MVP development relatively quick and easy as well.
  • Integrating the framework with an existing project is pretty straightforward.
  • It’s versatile: you can use Vue to build enterprise-sized applications as well as simple one-page apps.

What is Vue.js used for?

1. Nintendo

2. Passionate People

All internal projects at Passionate People are being created by a very lean development team that receives additional help only when it’s needed. Before choosing Vue, the team experimented with React and Web Components (based on Polymer 2 and then lit-html), but both approaches were ultimately abandoned. Writing the codebase in React required everyone working on the task to learn and understand some additional concepts before being able to contribute. Using Web Components resulted in adding more elements than the team felt comfortable with.

With Vue however, the team spent less time writing documentation and integrating external dependencies, and more focusing on the implementation itself. It also turned out that team members who join the team for a limited time can quickly get up to speed with the project and start programming.

3. FindlayWebTech

He praises Vue.js for being very declarative, component-based, offering two-way data binding, as well as for having an easy learning curve and superb documentation. For FindlayWebTech, Vue quickly became the favorite framework that they usually choose for all new projects besides those with a specific stack determined by the client.

4. Adobe

5. BridgeU

How did that happen? BridgeU developers say that one of the main reasons was single-file components, a feature that lets developers contain and reuse smaller parts of a functionality, which is extremely useful when managing large codebases. With single-file components, a developer can focus on a smaller part of a bigger feature, which results in faster iterations. The second huge reason for the start-up to stick with Vue.js was an abundance of open-source libraries that are available to use with the framework (or JavaScript in general). It means that writing some features from scratch is no longer necessary.

As a result, BridgeU offers a clean, modern User Interface that makes them stand out from the crowd, especially in the educational software industry, where many competitors still use outdated technologies.

6. Eve

After testing Vue, Angular, and React frameworks, An Phan, the Head of Engineering at Eve, decided on using Vue.js because of its friendly learning curve and mature ecosystem. Only one day after this decision, every team member (none of them being Vue specialists at that point) had their first Vue commit done. Building on widely available high-quality libraries, and extensive use of official documentation, the company was able to launch its core product in record time — with no sacrifices to its quality.

7. Gitlab

8. Coursedog

This quick growth was in part possible because the team chose Vue to create early demos. While working on them, developers discovered that the framework enabled them to iterate quickly, as well as create and reuse features fast. At the same time, it was also providing the easily scaled architecture that allowed them to create a large and powerful product over time. So they continued to use Vue.js.

The team emphasizes that Vue’s generous learning curve allows junior developers with little Vue experience to quickly catch up and start contributing to the code. The developers also praise the composition-api plugin available for Vue 2.x that helped them further scale the frontend. The company eagerly waits for the third-party libraries to catch up with Vue 3.0, expecting more performance gains and the improvement of developer experience.
