Book Review - Vue.js: Up and Running

Book cover

The clearest introduction to Vue.js that I’ve found.

There are a few small typos in the text and code snippets; keep O’Reilly’s Errata page handy as you read the book.

The book doesn’t do much to walk you through running the code on your own. On the plus side, this keeps things concise, which I take to be a goal of the “Up and Running” series. And actually having to do a little bit of work to get code snippets running locally helped solidify my understanding of the development environment and common Vue.js project structure.

But on the downside, I think this makes the book less useful for less experienced developers, and for developers that do not already possess a certain level of familiarity with modern Javascript and its ecosystem.
