How to convert from Angular to Vue

Converting an application from Angular to Vue can be a daunting task, especially if you're proficient in Angular but new to Vue. This guide will walk you through the process, offering tips and code examples to facilitate a smooth transition.

Understanding Angular and Vue Frameworks

Before diving into the conversion process, it's important to understand the fundamental differences between Angular and Vue. Angular is a full-fledged, highly opinionated framework from Google, while Vue is a more flexible and incremental model-view-viewmodel (MVVM) framework.

Setting Up Your Environment

Installing Vue CLI

First, ensure you have Vue CLI installed. This can be done via npm:

npm install -g @vue/cli

Creating a New Vue Project

Create a new Vue project using the following command:

vue create my-vue-project

This should provide you with a basic Vue setup to start migrating your Angular code.

Component Conversion

Angular to Vue Component Structure

Angular components consist of three main files: HTML template, CSS styles, and TypeScript logic. In Vue, these are generally combined into a single .vue file.

Angular Component Example:

  • component.ts
  • component.html
  • component.css

Vue Component Example:

  • Component.vue

The Component.vue file contains <template>, <script>, and <style> tags to encapsulate the HTML, logic, and styling.

Moving HTML Templates

Angular uses separate HTML files for templates. In Vue, HTML templates are included within <template> tags.

Angular:

<!-- example.component.html -->
<div>
  <h1>{{ title }}</h1>
</div>

Vue:

<!-- ExampleComponent.vue -->
<template>
  <div>
    <h1>{{ title }}</h1>
  </div>
</template>

Migrating Component Logic

Angular utilizes TypeScript classes with decorators, while Vue uses a simpler object literal syntax for components.

Angular:

// example.component.ts
import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-example',
  templateUrl: './example.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./example.component.css']
})
export class ExampleComponent {
  title = 'Hello World';
}

Vue:

// ExampleComponent.vue
<script>
export default {
  data() {
    return {
      title: 'Hello World'
    };
  }
};
</script>

Data Binding and Directives

Data Binding Syntax

Angular uses double curly braces {{ }} for interpolation. Vue uses the same syntax, making the transition straightforward in this respect.

Directives Comparison

Angular and Vue both use directives for DOM rendering and event handling, but with different names and syntaxes.

  • Angular:

    <div *ngIf="showDiv">Hello</div>
    <button (click)="handleClick()">Click Me</button>
    
  • Vue:

    <div v-if="showDiv">Hello</div>
    <button @click="handleClick">Click Me</button>
    

Services and State Management

Vuex as Angular Service Replacement

Angular often uses services to manage shared state and business logic. Vue has a similar concept with Vuex, a state management library.

Angular Service:

// data.service.ts
import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';

@Injectable({
  providedIn: 'root'
})
export class DataService {
  private data = 'Some data';

  getData() {
    return this.data;
  }
}

Vue with Vuex:

First, install Vuex:

npm install vuex

Then set up Vuex in store.js:

// store.js
import Vue from 'vue';
import Vuex from 'vuex';

Vue.use(Vuex);

export default new Vuex.Store({
  state: {
    data: 'Some data'
  },
  getters: {
    getData(state) {
      return state.data;
    }
  }
});

In your Vue component:

// ExampleComponent.vue
<script>
import { mapGetters } from 'vuex';

export default {
  computed: {
    ...mapGetters(['getData'])
  }
};
</script>

Routing in Vue

Vue Router is similar to Angular Router but generally simpler to configure.

First, install Vue Router:

npm install vue-router

Set up your routes in router.js:

// router.js
import Vue from 'vue';
import Router from 'vue-router';
import HomeComponent from './components/HomeComponent.vue';
import AboutComponent from './components/AboutComponent.vue';

Vue.use(Router);

export default new Router({
  routes: [
    { path: '/', component: HomeComponent },
    { path: '/about', component: AboutComponent }
  ]
});

Conclusion

Transitioning from Angular to Vue may seem complex, but by tackling the conversion step-by-step, you can leverage the powerful features of Vue for effective and efficient front-end development. By following this guide, you'll be well on your way to successfully converting your Angular applications to Vue. Remember, practice makes perfect – the more you work with Vue, the more intuitive it will become.
