I didn’t know this, but apparently, each minor Vue release on GitHub has a name derived from “manga and anime, most of which are within the science ﬁction genre.”
To be honest, I didn’t know they named Vue versions (let alone about the anime and manga references), except for Vue 3 - named One Piece. The name was thrown around here and there a couple of times during last year’s VueJS Global Conference when Vue 3 was announced, and @cassidoo even went as far as to make jokes about it. I was puzzled over the naming then, like “One Piece” - what does it mean, is it about some new Vue feature? My dumb brain didn’t even try to associate it with the manga One Piece, the manga that usually shows up on r/popular every week.
Now the reason why I’m blogging about this, after nearly 4 months of nothing, is because it’s a really interesting fact. As someone who prefers/likes/uses Vue for pretty much every front-end project possible, I think it’s a nice little Easter egg.
This post was made possible by @smashjarchive who questioned my existence as a VueJS developer if I didn’t know about Vue’s anime naming convention. Big up @smashjarchive!
