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.

You have learned how to connect the real-time Firebase database to your Vue application and used this knowledge to update the configurations for Pomodoro timers. Now, apply your knowledge to the statistics area. For the sake of simplicity, just display the total amount of Pomodoros executed since the user started using the application. For that you will need to do the following:

  1. Add another object called statistics containing the totalPomodoros attribute that initially equals 0 in your Firebase database.

  2. Create an entry in the store's state to hold the statistics data.

  3. Map totalPomodoros of the statistics state's object to the Firebase reference using the firebaseAction enhancer and the bindFirebaseRef method.

  4. Create an action that will update the totalPomodoros reference.

  5. Call this action whenever it has to be called inside the PomodoroTimer component.

  6. Display this value inside the Statistics.vue component.
