Working with ESLInt in Visual Studio code you might run into this error
elements in iteration expect to have 'v-bind:key' directives.eslintvue/require-v-for-key
Elements in iteration expect to have 'v-bind:key' directives
Checking the Vue documentation at https://vuejs.org/v2/guide/list.html#v-for-with-a-Component you will see this
in 2.2.0+, when using v-for with a component, a key is now required.
At Stack Overflow thread https://stackoverflow.com/q/47395535/460885 you get a better explanation based on the (older) documentation:
To give Vue a hint so that it can track each node’s identity, and thus reuse and reorder existing elements, you need to provide a unique [...] It is recommended to provide a key with v-for whenever possible, unless the iterated DOM content is simple, or you are intentionally relying on the default behavior for performance gains.
So adding the v-bind:key does not hurt either way.
