One-minute setup

Without further ado, let's start creating our first Vue app with a very quick setup. Vue is flexible enough to be included in any web page with a simple script tag. Let's create a very simple web page that includes the library, with a simple div element and another script tag:

  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>Vue Project Guide setup</title>

  <!-- Include the library in the page -->
  <script src=""></script>

  <!-- Some HTML -->
  <div id="root">
    <p>Is this an Hello world?</p>

  <!-- Some JavaScript -->
  console.log('Yes! We are using Vue version', Vue.version)


In the browser console, we should have something like this:

Yes! We are using Vue version 2.0.3

As you can see in the preceding code, the library exposes a Vue object that contains all the features we need to use it. We are now ready to go.
