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.

Implementing the Pomodoro timer

One of the most important components of our application is, without any doubt, the Pomodoro timer. It performs the main functionality of the application. So, it might be a good idea to implement it in the first place.

I am thinking of some kind of a circular timer. Something like this:

Circular timer to be implemented as a Pomodoro timer

As time passes, the highlighted sector will move counterclockwise and the time will count down as well. To implement this kind of structure, I am thinking of three components:

  • SvgCircleSector: This component will just receive an angle as a property and color the corresponding sector of the SVG circle.

  • CountDownTimer: This component will receive the number of seconds to countdown, implement the timer and calculate the angle to pass to the SvgCircularComponent on each timer update.

  • PomodoroTimer: We have already bootstrapped this component. This component will be responsible to call the CountDownTimer component with the initial...
