In this first section, we will improve our development workflow with new tools and packages. However, first, we need to set up our Fashion Store project.

Setting up the project

  1. Generate a new project using the vue init command like we did in Chapter 5, Project 3 - Support Center, and Chapter 6, Project 4 - Geolocated Blog:
      vue init webpack-simple e-shop
      cd e-shop
      npm install

      npm i -D stylus stylus-loader

      npm i -S axios vue-router vuex vuex-router-sync
