# Available Stacks

Laravel Jetstream offers your choice of two frontend stacks: Livewire and Inertia.js. Each stack provides a productive, powerful starting point for building your application; however, the stack you choose will depend on your preferred templating language.

# Livewire + Blade

Laravel Livewire is a library that makes it simple to build modern, reactive, dynamic interfaces using Laravel Blade as your templating language. This is a great stack to choose if you want to build an application that is dynamic and reactive but don't feel comfortable jumping into a full JavaScript framework like Vue.js.

When using Livewire, you may pick and choose which portions of your application will be a Livewire component, while the remainder of your application can be rendered as the traditional Blade templates you are used to.

# Inertia + Vue

The Inertia stack provided by Jetstream uses Vue.js as its templating language. Building an Inertia application is a lot like building a typical Vue application; however, you will use Laravel's router instead of Vue router. Inertia is a small library that allows you to render single-file Vue components from your Laravel backend by providing the name of the component and the data that should be hydrated into that component's "props".

In other words, this stack gives you the full power of Vue.js without the complexity of client-side routing. You get to use the standard Laravel routing and view data hydration approaches that you are used to.

The Inertia stack is a great choice if you are comfortable with and enjoy using Vue.js as your templating language.
