Creating and Handling Forms in Vue with Data Transformers

Vue.js, a popular progressive JavaScript framework, offers an intuitive way of building user interfaces. One of the common tasks in web development is handling forms. This article will guide you through creating and handling forms in Vue and demonstrate the advantage of using data transformers.

Why Use Data Transformers?

Imagine a situation where the data format required by the API doesn't align with the format in which the form data is maintained internally in the Vue component. This can lead to potential bugs and issues.

Data transformers come in handy in these situations. They act as an intermediary, converting or transforming the data from the form’s internal state to the state needed by the API (and vice versa). This ensures a clear separation of concerns, making the code maintainable and readable.
