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.

  databaseURL: 'YourDBURL',
  authDomain: 'YourAuthDomain'
let app = firebase.initializeApp(config)

You can find the necessary keys and URLs in the popup that opens if you click on the Web Setup button:

Now you can use the app instance to access the auth() object and its methods. Check out the official Firebase documentation regarding the authentication API:

The most important part of the API for us is the methods to create and sign in a user, and the method that listens to the changes in the authentication state:

app.auth().createUserWithEmailAndPassword(email, password)


app.auth().signInWithEmailAndPassword(email, password)

The method that listens to the...
