One particular characteristic of Vue is its international reach. As a Chinese native speaker, Evan You could write the chinese language documentation so as to avoid losing important meaning in translation. This helps explain the widespread adoption in mainland China, and its use by companies like Baidu and Alibaba.
At ownCloud, we chose Vue.js for our new web interface that will support both the upcoming ownCloud Infinite Scale and ownCloud 10 – because of its simplicity, elegance, and the flexibility it affords us. The learning curve is more gentle than for other frameworks. That also makes it easier for developers to quickly create extensions and customizations of the new ownCloud web interface. As an example, we created a markdown editor.
Vue.js also powers our pattern library called ownCloud design system. Through Vue.js and reusable components, we also try to substantially increase the accessibility of the new web interface.
