I agree its such a pity to not have previously anticipated this, although Vue CLI 3 has been in development for a few months. I was concerned about its development and also the new Quasar CLI for v0.15, but I assumed Razvan was not only aware of this, but also taking Vue CLI 3 into consideration (and probably he did! But decided to go for Quasar CLI anyway for some reason, which happened, and now I totally understand his frustration when somebody shows up with something like “Hey, let’s get into the hype-wagon of Vue CLI!”), so I didn’t worry at all.
I’m sure everyone here is aware of all the work and effort that required v0.15, but to make it clear, nothing from all that hard work would be lost by “migrating” to remote preset(s) of Vue CLI. It’s just a port, and the advantages of that are already well explained in the replies above.
