The Vue JS team released CLI version 4.0 recently. This latest update comes with an automation method, additional package managers, and many other exciting functionalities.

Notable features of Vue.js CLI 4:

  • New pwa.manifestOptions field: You can now generate manifest.jason during the build process rather than copying from a project’s public folder. As a result, you can efficiently manage Vue PWA configurations.
  • Better handling of async operations: You can get the support for asynchronous functions in generators. For that, you need to apply generators from plugins.
  • Stable Vue dist folder layout: In CLI 4, when you run build and production commands, you get the consistent directory structure across the modes.
  • Automation: You can now automate the migration process by running migrators from plugins.
  • Package manager: It is now possible to use additional package managers and specify a custom node package manager.

Apart from this, Vue CLI Version 4 offers many other vital upgrades and improvements. It includes an extra confirmation step for uncommitted changes, improved whitespace handling, plugin invocation listening inside another plugin, the inclusion of Mocha 6, workbox-webpack-plugin, and more.

WebAssembly 1.0 – The Fourth Language To Run Natively In Browsers

The W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) has officially recommended WebAssembly 1.0 as a web standard. It has now become the fourth language after HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to run natively in the browsers.

WebAssembly is a low-level, portable, and secure code format. It is language-independent, platform-independent, and hardware-independent. Therefore, you can create high-performing applications that provide desktop-quality experiences on the web without affecting the performance.

W3C published three specifications as part of the recommendation:

  1. WebAssembly Core Specification: It defines a low-level machine that imitates the functionality of microprocessors.
  2. WebAssembly Web API: It specifies a Promise-based interface to request and execute a .wasm resource.
  3. WebAssembly JavaScript Interface: It offers a JavaScript API to invoke and pass parameters to the functions of WebAssembly.

You can embed WebAssembly programs in browsers, run them as a stand-alone VM, or even integrate them into other environments. A few applications that are using WebAssembly include Google Earth Port Beta, Doom 3 game, and Game Editor desktop application.

Rishabh Software provides custom web application development services to businesses across domains. We build robust, scalable, and secure web apps as per your business requirements.
