When working with an application, website, or mobile app at a certain point it becomes too complex to manage all of the information about your app by passing around properties or storing the information in the database just to use it again on the next page.

Too often integrating a state manager to manage that complexity for you seems out of reach, When taking a quick look at Vuex, I can see why; often there is confusion around when to use a mutation or an action? What is a commit? where did my payload go? What do I need to dispatch?

This and many other related issues or concerns are addressed with this new state manager for VueJS called Pinia

Pinia started as an experiment to redesign what a Store for Vue could look like with the Composition API around November 2019. Since then, the initial principles are still the same, but Pinia works for both Vue 2 and Vue 3 and doesn't require you to use the composition API.
