Both iView and Vuestic UI are popular UI component libraries for Vue.js, but iView has a larger user base and is more widely recognized in the Vue community.
iView offers a comprehensive collection of UI components including form elements, navigation components, data display components, and more. Vuestic UI also provides a good range of components, but its collection is smaller compared to iView.
Customization and Theming
Both libraries allow customization and theming of components. However, Vuestic UI provides more flexibility in terms of customization, allowing developers to easily modify the appearance and behavior of components to fit their specific design requirements.
iView has well-documented API and guides, providing comprehensive examples and explanations for each component. Vuestic UI also has decent documentation, but it may not be as extensive as iView's.
Both libraries offer a pleasant developer experience, providing intuitive APIs and clear documentation. However, iView's larger user base means that there is more community support available, including more tutorials, examples, and community-driven plugins or extensions.
Both libraries are compatible with Vue 2.x. However, it's worth noting that iView has official support for Vue 3.x, while Vuestic UI is still in the process of upgrading to Vue 3.x, and as of now, it may not be fully compatible.
Both libraries are actively maintained by their respective communities. However, iView has a longer history and more frequent updates, which can ensure better bug fixes, new features, and overall stability. Vuestic UI is also maintained well, but it may not see updates as frequently as iView.
