The beginning

When I created Vuetify, it was a personal project meant to help spec out prototypes more efficiently. Only after sharing it with a co-worker was I convinced to release it as an full open-source project. The amazing community and extremely talented developers that I have had the pleasure to be around are what make working on this project mean so much to me. But you cannot have the sweet without the sour. Maintaining the level of activity needed to accommodate the growing needs of the user-base has lead to many sleepless nights and time away from my family.

The transition

With v1.0 around the corner, the pressure is on and has no signs of letting up. After talking with my current employer, we both agree that this is a dream that should not be passed up. Starting on November 1st, I will officially transition my day job to Vuetify. Providing the best possible quality for developers and enterprise users will only be possible if I dedicate 100% of my time to building out the Vue and Vuetify ecosystem. I want to give developers and businesses from around the world a platform that they can use to succeed.

The future

If this project has enabled you or your organization to do great things, I'm calling for your support. In the coming months I will be expanding the reach of Vuetify's community and support network by working with project backers and community members to help fine-tune the underdeveloped areas of the framework. The documentation will be updated with new guides, better examples, more resources and better i18n support.


Some other exciting features on the Roadmap:

  • Front-end component pack 10 new components catered towards enhancing the front-end capabilities of your application (from backers)
  • Back-end component pack 10 new components focused on providing solutions for common issues in dashboard based applications, CRUDs, etc (from backers)
  • Vue/Vuetify video course A video tutorial series for Vue and Vuetify (from backers)
  • Alpha theme A pre-built premium theme made for the front-end
  • Improved and additional free themes I will be improving the current offerings and adding additional templates that are, and will always be, free
  • Improved international support I will be working close with the community to ensure that Vuetify has the best possible support for all languages and locations
  • Improved enterprise support Many Vuetify developers are part of organizations that want to know their investment is going to be supported. We will reach stable version v1.0 in December with additional plans for LTS (long-term support) following

Thank you

These are just a few of the many features and enhancements in store. I cannot wait to share the rest with you in the near future. I want to personally thank you and everyone else for your unwavering support. By whatever means you ended up here, I cannot express to you how grateful I am that you gave Vuetify a chance.

Brilliant news, John! And I hope this will last for a long, long time in order to have a reliable framework that's going to stay. To have this commitment and view of the future is a very important point to convice bosses using open source like Vuetify. Thanky you very much! 👍

what about RTL support?

Copy link

@jdriesen jdriesen commented Oct 19, 2017

That's wonderful news, John.
Question to all colleague devs... which templates (styles) are you using for the moment ?
Do you maybe have some links or inspiration available ?
(I'm a dev, and no designer at all, that's why I'm asking)

To give some more details.
Till a couple of months ago, I was a Bootstrap user.
My fav theme was The Project
A sober, though nice interface, with some attractive stuff for the end-user (like there are the "tabs")
Can we do something similar with Material ? If so, where can I find some examples ?

Thanks in advance for your time to reply,

@mitar Backers have a special channel in discord where they already communicate these requests. There is currently no bounty source but I'm not opposed to it.

{ PS: I think I am well experienced in Sass, knowledgeable in stylus and can help }

@IamManchanda, it would be awesome if you could help! Please take a look at the discussion at the bottom of #2371. In short, @johnleider is willing to support SASS/SCSS if someone takes care of Stylus-to-SASS/SCSS compiling (which is not as scary as it sounds, see discussion).
