What is Vue.JS?
Building a website is one thing. Getting people to see it is another.
Similar to React, Vue works within a VIrtual DOM. Whatever HTML you write in Vue is compiled into a Virtual DOM whenever the component is rendered.
Some of Vue’s Strengths
SSR or Prerendering?
There are two options for getting your Vue website properly crawled and indexed: enable server-side rendering (SSR) or use a prerendering plugin. Vue has the advantage over Angular and React when it comes to SSR support because it provides ample documentation telling you how to do this.
SSR Pros and Cons
However, enabling SSR comes with significant trade-offs. It involves a much more complicated setup, which means more work for your developers and higher server maintenance costs.
SSR comes with some performance enhancements like a faster page load and first contentful paint. However, some visible elements like buttons or widgets might not be interactive while the page is still loading, which can negatively impact the user experience.
Prerender® also works seamlessly with the smaller apps and websites that are typically designed with Vue, making it the ideal choice for your Vue website. The simple solution is usually the best one.
