Jonathan Reinink proposes a new take on what Vue's role could be in a server rendered app.

What I have here is a classic server-side app, that uses server-side routing and controllers. There is no API. The controllers lookup the data from the database, and then pass it to the templates. Except, I'm not using any server-side (ie. Blade) templates. Instead I'm doing full client-side rendering using Vue.js. Confused yet? Let me explain.
