Vue.js 2 Web Development Projects


Overview of this book

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. This book's project-based approach will get you to build six stunning applications from scratch and gain valuable insights in Vue.js 2.5. 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.

Production measures

The first page we will make is the Measures page, where we will have two buttons:

  • The first one will generate a fake production measure with current date and random value
  • The second one will also generate a measure, but with the error property set to true

All these measures will be stored in a collection called "Measures".

Meteor collections integration

A Meteor collection is a reactive list of objects, similar to a MongoDB collection (in fact, it uses MongoDB under the hood).

We need to use a Vue plugin to integrate the Meteor collections into our Vue app in order to update it automatically:

  1. Add the vue-meteor-tracker npm package:
      meteor npm i -S vue-meteor-tracker
  1. Then, install the library into Vue:
      import VueMeteorTracker from 'vue-meteor-tracker'

  1. Restart Meteor with the meteor command.

The app is now aware of the Meteor collection and we can use them in our components, as we will do in a moment.
