- Top 9 Examples of Vuetify Templates
It is safe to say that in 2021 user experience is crucial. And, subsequently, user interface and overall project design are just as crucial. User experience and intuitive design help your end-user to not only get the overall gist of your project but also build a connection to your brand, which, ideally, evolves into brand loyalty in the future.
The reasoning behind these simple, at face value, truths is actually quite fascinating if we were to get to the bottom of this. It all has to do with the natural evolution of the paradigm of the relationship between the seller and the buyer in the wider sphere of business and, more importantly, in the narrower sphere of marketing. At the moment, the customer’s position is much more convenient when compared to the seller’s one, due to the market’s oversaturation with demand. In layman’s terms, it is always possible for a customer to look elsewhere for similar, even if worth, goods and services.
That is why it is most important for a company to work over its image and overall presentation, especially when it comes to such constantly changing spheres as the web. And, coming full circle to the very beginning of our discussion, means paying close attention to your project’s web presentation and user experience and interface.
Things to Know About Vuetify: Vuetify Pros and Cons
What is Vuetify and what does it have to do with everything that we have talked about already? Vuetify is a complete UI framework that can be built on top of Vue. Thus, the beautiful pun in the name. But, although we always appreciate good wordplay, we digress. The main goal of Vuetify is to provide developers with the ability to create richer and more engaging user experiences in a more effortless manner. And that is not its only advantage. One of the best things about Vuetify is its mobile-first approach to design, meaning that any app builds on this framework works on any device, be it phones, computers or tablets, right out of the box.
But that’s not where Vuetify’s pros end. Let’s take a look at them with the following rundown:
• Vuetify is open-source, giving you, as a developer, to inspect and study from other developers and vice versa.
• Vuetify’s components are reusable. Being based on Vue, Vuetify consists of components, rendering every part of your or anybody’s projects reusable. This fact, in turn, significantly simplifies unit-testing, readability and overall usage of your code.
• Vuetify possesses a large variety of components. And, being a Material Design component framework, we cannot see it as anything, but an advantage.
• Vuetify browser compatibility is vast. As Vuetify is a progressive framework, projects built with it are compatible with a wide variety of different browsers, such as:
- Edge Insider;
- Safari 10+;
- Internet Explorer and Safari 9. Although, this pairing is only supported with polyfill.
• Vuetify has a large community. And that’s a great fact, taking into consideration the above-mentioned fact that all of the Vuetify components are reusable, as it means that your chances of not only getting competent help from fellow developers on any emerging issues but also finding worthwhile components that you will be able to use on your projects.
• Vuetify documentation is outstanding. This advantage is pretty self-explanatory. The documentation Vuetify boasts is just as good as its paternal Vue. This allows new developers to get into working with it easier and quicker.
But every coin has two sides, meaning that Vutify is not perfect by any stretch of imagination. Let’s take a peek at Vuetify’s cons:
• Vuetify is a Material Design Framework. This is not, necessarily, a disadvantage by any means, but if you, as a developer, is not a fan of it this can be perceived as such.
• Vuetify’s customization can be somewhat challenging. But, once again, this is not a full-fledged disadvantage, as it mainly concerns developers, who are new to Vuetify and haven’t yet got a firm grip on all of its inner machinations.
So, as you can see, Vuetify not only possesses much more advantages than disadvantages, which, in their own right can be dismissed pretty easily but also is a useful and worthwhile tool for your project UI creation and improvement. Now, let’s pay our undivided attention to the other main character of today’s article – Vuetify Templates.
