Vue.js 2 and Bootstrap 4 Web Development

Overview of this book

In this book, we will build a full stack web application right from scratch up to its deployment. We will start by building a small introduction application and then proceed to the creation of a fully functional, dynamic responsive web application called ProFitOro. In this application, we will build a Pomodoro timer combined with office workouts. Besides the Pomodoro timer and ProFitOro workouts will enable authentication and collaborative content management. We will explore topics such as Vue reactive data binding, reusable components, routing, and Vuex store along with its state, actions, mutations, and getters. We will create Vue applications using both webpack and Nuxt.js templates while exploring cool hot Nuxt.js features such as code splitting and server-side rendering. We will use Jest to test this application, and we will even revive some trigonometry from our secondary school! While developing the app, you will go through the new grid system of Bootstrap 4 along with Vue.js’ directives. We will connect Vuex store to the Firebase real-time database, data storage, and authentication APIs and use this data later inside the application’s reactive components. Finally, we will quickly deploy our application using the Firebase hosting mechanism.

Deploying from your local machine

In this section, we are going to deploy our application using the Firebase command-line tools. We have already done it. Check the Google Firebase documentation for a quick start:

Basically, if you haven't yet installed Firebase tools, do it now!

npm install -g firebase-tools

Now switch inside your project's directory and initialize a Firebase project:

firebase init

From the drop-down menu that appears, choose hosting.


It's not really obvious, so keep in mind that to actually choose something from the list, you have to press Space.

Press Space to select the Hosting feature

After that, select your ProFitOro project from the list and after that, indicate the folder dist for the build's output directory:

Type dist for the public directory of your assets

Answer No to the next question and you are done! Make sure that Firebase creates both firebase.json and .firebaserc files in your project's folder.

This is what...
