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.

Chapter 9. Test Test and Test

In the previous chapter, we implemented the workout management page. We learned how to use the Google Firebase data storage mechanism to store static files and we again used the real-time database to store the workout objects. We used Bootstrap to build a responsive layout for the workout' management page and we learned how to use Bootstrap's modal component to display each individual workout in a nice popup. Now we have a totally responsible application. Thanks to Bootstrap, we had to implement nothing special to have a nice mobile representation. Here's what adding new workouts looks like on a mobile screen:

And this is what our modal looks like on a mobile device:

Now it's time to test our application. We are going to use Jest (https://facebook.github.io/jest/) to build unit tests and run snapshot testing. In this chapter, we are going to do the following:
