Frequently Asked Questions

I'm a part of a team. Can I use Vue Designer without having the whole team using it?

Absolutely! Pinegrow's Vite plugin or the meta-framework specific integrations are development-only and activate within your dev-server's plugin chain only if the project is currently opened in Vue Designer. So, if your team is not using Vue Designer, it won't have any effect on their workflow.

Alternatively, you can add the Vite plugin/integrations just on your local branch.

I already have Pinegrow Web Editor. Why do I need a spearate app to work with Vue?

Even though Vue Designer is built on top of Pinegrow Web Editor, it is architecturally different. Bundler based tooling has come a long way in the past decade, and we integrate with and leverage the power of  Vite for on-demand compilation, and an amazing HMR experience.

In Vue Designer, your Vue components & your app in a whole are served via an external Vite dev-server, while in Pinegrow Web Editor, technologies that require compilation/transpiling (e.g., scss) are handled with in-built support.

Is Vue Designer suitable for beginners?

As stated in Vue.js official docs (prerequisites), a Vue developer is assumed to be already familiar with HTML, CSS and Javascript.

On a similar note, you are expected to be familiar with Vue when working on your Vue apps in Vue Designer, but you can definitely use Vue Designer in your learning journey. What better way to build your visual medium (your apps) than to built it visually, like how your users will experience it?

What are the license terms?

A separate license is needed for each individual user who is using the app. Exceptions are made for family members - it makes no sense requiring your kids to buy a separate license if they want to learn with Vue Designer on your computer.

You can install your copy of Vue Designer on up to 3 of your computers (at home and at work, Windows, Mac or Linux) as long as you are the one using the app.
