In previous Laravel projects, I've dropped Vue.js into a page and created a Vue instance specific for that page. Something like this at the bottom of my page:
Now in Laravel 5.3 Vue.js comes bundled up with it and I have got a slight grasp on how I can create components which I can then drop into a page. However, I am struggling to understand how I can create a Vue.js instance like the aforementioned, i.e. where I just need to drop a vue instance into a page instead of creating a whole component.
Can I utilise Vue that gets incorporated into app.js when running gulp or do I need to pull in Vue as I did before with the script tag?
