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.

Making the authentication UI great again


We have just implemented the authentication mechanism for our ProFitOro application. That's great, but the UI of our authentication page looks as if we've used a time machine and gone back 20 years to the early days of the internet. Let's fix it using our powerful friend – Bootstrap.

First of all, I would like to make my landing page layout a two-column grid layout, so the whole sign-in/login belongs to the left column and the button that leads the user to the application without being registered stays on the right side. However, I would like these two columns to be stacked on mobile devices.

This is nothing new for you; I suppose that you remember how to use Bootstrap's grid layout in order to achieve this behavior: https://v4-alpha.getbootstrap.com/layout/grid/. So, in our LandingPage component, I will just wrap the authentication and go-to-app-link components into the div with the row class and add the corresponding col-* classes to these components...
