Pinia is recently gaining popularity among Vue developers due to its simplicity.

Until now, we were mostly using Vuex for the application state management in Vue. Let’s give Pinia a try today and see how it goes.

This article will guide you in a simple way to migrate Vue.js applications from Vuex to Pinia.

Recently, we migrated our canopas website from Vuex to Pinia. I feel it's super easy.

It is quite similar to Vuex but with less code. It has reduced lots of coding and extra computations of mutations and getters.

Pinia can work with Vuex easily. So if you have a large application then don’t worry. You can replace the store with Pinia module-wise, and eventually, you can have Pinia store in the whole application.
