πŸ”¬ Technical Details

The Versioning

For every release, it will release two version of this package. The 3.x.x is used for Vue 3.x and the 2.x.x is used for 2.x. We use the major version number to distinguish the different target version will the minor and patch numbers are shared in both packages.

Different between 3.x and 2.x

Since the Composition API will be available in 3.x. Using it in 2.x require you use a polyfill. For 3.x build, we use the API from @vue/runtime-dom, and for 2.x, it's @vue/composition-api. All the functions exported in this package behaves the same.

// 3.x build
import { ref } from '@vue/runtime-dom'

// 2.x build
import { ref } from '@vue/composition-api'
