Do you want to make your web application amazingly responsive? Are you unhappy with your app's performance and looking forward to trying out ways to make your app more powerful? Then Vue.js, a framework for building user interfaces, is a great choice, and this book is the ideal way to put it through its paces.

You'll start by learning the basics of Vue.js and create your first web app using directives along with rich and attractive user experiences. You will learn about animations and interactivity by creating a browser-based game. Using the available tools and preprocessor, you will learn how to create multi-page apps with plugins. You will create highly efficient and performant functional components for your app. Next, you will create your own online store and optimize it. Finally, you will integrate Vue.js with the real-time Meteor library and create a dashboard showing real-time data. By the end of this book you will have enough skills and will have worked through enough examples of real Vue.js projects to create interactive professional web applications with Vue.js 2.5.

Setting up the project

Download the chapter 2 files and extract the project setup into an empty folder. You should have the following content:

  • index.html: The web page
  • style.css: The CSS file
  • svg: Contains all the SVG images of the game
  • cards.js: With all the cards data ready to use
  • state.js: Where we will consolidate the main data properties of the game
  • utils.js: Where we will write useful functions
  • banner-template.svg: We will use the content of this file later

We will start with our main JavaScript file--create a new file called main.js.

Open the index.html file and add a new script tag referencing the new file, just after the state.js one:

<!-- Scripts -->
<script src="utils.js"></script>
<script src="cards.js"></script>
<script src="state.js"></script>
<script src="main.js"></script>

Let's create the main instance of our app in the main.js file:

new Vue({
  name: 'game',
  el: '#app',

We are now ready to go!
