Top 3 UI Frameworks for VueJS

Among all JavaScript frameworks, one has been particularly gaining popularity in recent years: Vuejs. A Soft learning curve, Virtual DOM and many other features make Vuejs unique and useful. Vuejs is a JavaScript framework for building user interfaces but it doesn’t provide actual UI elements or components we can use. Frameworks help designers and developers to focus on the features which they want to add for their projects rather than focusing on reinventing the coding. That’s why many UI frameworks have been built to provide users with reusable and styled-components. Here, we will discuss the top three UI frameworks that can be used with Vuejs.


Vuetify is a material design component framework that lets you create clean and reusable UI components. It works with Vue’s Server Side Rendering and has premium themes. Vuetify has great support and continuous updates which helps users to remain up to date. Steps to install Vuetify are given below:-

  • First, you need to upgrade to Vue CLI 3 or above using the following command:

  • Then create a new Vue.js project using Vue CLI 3:
