Feature comparison

Bellevue is built on top of the awesome, official vuejs-templates/webpack template. While it's a great template, it does lack a few features in the tooling, and provides very little in terms of architecture and patterns for writing application code on top of the tooling.

This project aims to provide a more realistic representation of what a modern full-featured frontend project will have. It's important to remember that there are many different, valid ways of introducing the features listed below, and any project template like this will have to make opinionated decisions about how to architecture everything. If you are unhappy with the way this project is structured, you can still use this comparison as a reference.

For a quick overview of what the full feature set of Bellevue is, check out the annotated project structure.

If you only need a subset of these features, the extra capabilities can easily be removed to stramline your app. Visit the corresponding section of the documentation for more information on how to remove specific features.

Note: this project is still early in development, and some features are implemented in a more mature form than others. If you choose to start from the official basic template, you will have to implement the missing features from scratch however.
