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.

  • The application should display a countdown timer.

  • The countdown timer can be from 25 to 0 minutes, from 5 to 0 minutes, or from 10 to 0 minutes.

  • It shall be possible to start, pause, and stop the timer at any moment of the application's execution.

  • The application shall produce some sounds when the time reaches 0 and the next period of break or the working Pomodoro starts.

  • The application shall display a workout during the short and long breaks. It shall be possible to skip the current workout and switch to the next one. It shall also be possible to skip workouts completely during a break and just stare at kittens. It shall also be possible to mark the given workout as done.

  • The application must offer an authentication...
