Wired.com published a interesting piece on Even You and Vue. It also contains some quotes by Taylor Otwell, the creator of Laravel.
The big reason for Vue's success, developers who rely on it say, is its simplicity. More companies want to build web applications that, like Google Docs, feel as snappy as a native application. But few actually build applications as complex as Facebook’s or Google’s. What developers often really want is a framework for building small, interactive web apps. Angular can be overkill for simple applications, while React has a steep learning curve even for experienced developers. Vue applies a more "layered" approach to building a framework.
