🛠 Navigating the Upgrade Plan: Steps Before Vue 3 Migration

Programming Language🛠 Navigating the Upgrade Plan: Steps Before Vue 3 Migration


Welcome back, fellow tech enthusiasts! If you’re just joining us, this post is part of a series where we dive deep into Torah Live’s journey of upgrading to Nuxt 3. In our previous post, we explored why we made the decision to upgrade. Now, let’s take a closer look at the meticulous plan we crafted before diving into Vue 3 migration.

Before diving headfirst into Vue 3 migration, we embarked on a thorough planning phase to ensure a smooth transition. This phase involved extensive research, meticulous documentation, and strategic decision-making.

First and foremost, I delved into the vast ocean of online resources to gather insights from fellow developers who had embarked on similar migration journeys. Blogs, articles, and video tutorials became my compass, guiding me through the intricacies of Nuxt 3 migration. Among the resources that proved invaluable were HarlanZW’s Nuxt 3 Migration Cheatsheet, Debbie’s blog on migrating from Nuxt 2 to Nuxt 3 (This one is a bit older but still has good info), and Alex Van Liew’s enlightening video tutorial from Vue Conf.

Armed with insights from the community and a clear understanding of the migration process, I devised a comprehensive plan to tackle the upgrade in a systematic manner:

  1. Complete Any Pre-Migration Migrations: Leveraging the flexibility of Vue 2, we prioritized any migrations that could be completed before transitioning to Vue 3. This allowed us to make incremental improvements to our codebase while still operating on Vue 2, ensuring a seamless transition.
  2. Evaluate Third-Party Packages: I meticulously compiled a list of all third-party packages used in our application, categorizing them based on their compatibility with Vue 3. Packages with Vue 3 compatibility were marked for seamless integration, while those without required careful evaluation to determine suitable alternatives.
  3. Migration to Nuxt-Bridge: With a clear roadmap in place, we initiated the migration process by transitioning to Nuxt-Bridge. This intermediary step served as a crucial bridge between Vue 2 and Vue 3, laying the groundwork for the final migration.
  4. Transition to Vue 3: Once our application was successfully built on Nitro with Nuxt-Bridge, we were ready to take the leap to Vue 3. Armed with meticulous planning and a comprehensive understanding of the migration process, we embarked on the final phase of our journey.

As we meticulously executed each step of our upgrade plan, we encountered unexpected challenges and roadblocks along the way. However, with perseverance and a strategic approach, we navigated through the stormy seas of migration, emerging stronger and more resilient than ever before.

The planning phase proved to be the cornerstone of our successful migration journey. By investing time and effort into research, documentation, and strategic decision-making, we laid a solid foundation for the transition to Vue 3. In the next installment, we’ll dive into the migration process itself, uncovering insights and lessons learned along the way.
