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.

In this chapter, we familiarized ourselves with Vue.js, Bootstrap and Firebase. We have also analyzed tools that integrate Vue.js with Bootstrap and Vue.js with Firebase.

Thus, now, we are familiar with Vue.js applications that are built using single-file components, Bootstrap's grid system, components, and CSS helpers to make our lives easier and to make Google Firebase console with its possibilities.

Also, we know how to initialize Vue.js project, and use Vue directives, components, store and routing.

You also learned how to leverage Bootstrap's grid system to achieve the responsibility of our application's layout.

And last but not least, you learned how to use the Firebase API within the Vue application using vuefire bindings.

With the end of this chapter, the first introduction part of our journey also comes to an end.

In the next chapter, we will actually dive deep inside the implementation. As a scuba diving tank, we will take everything that you have learned so far!

So, we will start...
