Vue Tip: Avoid Empty Wrapper for Conditions Image

There are many situations when you need to conditionally display multiple Vue components. To avoid "empty" wrappers you should use the <template> instead of other HTML Tags. <template> will not generate any HTML tag and serves as an invisible wrapper. The final rendered result will not include the <template> element:

<template>  <div v-if="loggedIn">    <ProfileImage />    <ProfileData />  </div></template>
<template>  <template v-if="loggedIn">    <ProfileImage />    <ProfileData />  </template></template>

v-else and v-else-if can also be used on <template>.
