Using Vue with TypeScript

Vue is written in TypeScript itself and provides first-class TypeScript support. All official Vue packages come with bundled type declarations that should work out-of-the-box.

Use create-vue

The recommended tooling to start and develop an awesome modern Vue project consist of:

brew install yarn nvm vue-cli vite

Install latest Node LTS version

nvm install --lts
node -v && npm -v && vue -V

# v16.14.0
# 8.3.1

Vite gives you a minimal App folder structure

Use the principle of predictability, so the if your App scales, it will remain maintainable and extendable the more it grows. The goal is to reach the ability to intuitively address any feature request or bug report to its location in the codebase.


<script setup lang="ts">
import { ref } from 'vue'

defineProps<{ msg: string }>()

const count = ref(0)

  <h1>{{ msg }}</h1>
