Detailed explanation of Vue life cycle

Mount (initialize related properties)

1. beforeCreate

Triggered when the instance of new Vue has not been created and the specific configuration of Vue instance has not been carried out according to the configuration object

At this time, the option object of the component has not been created, and el and data have not been initialized, so there is no way to access the methods, data, computed and other methods and data.

2. created

Triggered when the Vue instance is created. It is called immediately after the instance is created

The instance has completed the following configuration:

Operation of data observer, properties and methods, and callback of watch/event events.

At this time, the mount phase has not yet started, so the attribute of $el is invisible. Therefore, at this time, we can call the method method method to change the value in data and obtain the calculated attribute in calculated.

3. beforeMount

Triggered when the instance is mounted. When the instance and app are mounted, they are called before mounting, and the relevant render function is called for the first time (virtual DOM)

The instance has completed the following configuration

Compile the template, generate html from the data and template in data, and complete the initialization of el and data,

But it is not mounted on the page at this time.

4. mounted

Triggered when the container is initialized and the container template is ready. Mount the page and render the html into the page. At this time, you can perform some request operations. This event will be executed only once.

Update (change operation of element or component)

1. beforeUpdate

Triggered before updating the data in data. We can verify whether the latest data updated by users is correct in the beforeUpdate life cycle

2. updated

Execute when the data is updated

The virtual DOM is re rendered and patched due to data changes, after which the hook will be called

When this hook is called, the component DOM has been updated, so you can now perform DOM dependent operations. However, in most cases, you should avoid changing state during this period. If you want to change the state accordingly, it is usually best to use the calculated attribute or watcher instead.

Destroy (destroy related attributes)


Triggered before destroying Vue instances

At this time, we can release and empty the data saved by variables. At this step, the instance is still fully available

Generally, some reset operations are performed in this step, such as clearing the timer in the component and listening dom events.


After destroying the Vue instance, it triggers and calls after the instance is destroyed.

After calling, all event listeners will be removed and all sub instances will be destroyed. The hook will not be called during server-side rendering
