Full-Stack Vue.js 2 and Laravel 5

Overview of this book

Vue is a JavaScript framework that can be used for anything from simple data display to sophisticated front-end applications and Laravel is a PHP framework used for developing fast and secure web-sites. This book gives you practical knowledge of building modern full-stack web apps from scratch using Vue with a Laravel back end. In this book, you will build a room-booking website named "Vuebnb". This project will show you the core features of Vue, Laravel and other state-of-the-art web development tools and techniques. The book begins with a thorough introduction to Vue.js and its core concepts like data binding, directives and computed properties, with each concept being explained first, then put into practice in the case-study project. You will then use Laravel to set up a web service and integrate the front end into a full-stack app. You will be shown a best-practice development workflow using tools like Webpack and Laravel Mix. With the basics covered, you will learn how sophisticated UI features can be added using ES+ syntax and a component-based architecture. You will use Vue Router to make the app multi-page and Vuex to manage application state. Finally, you will learn how to use Laravel Passport for authenticated AJAX requests between Vue and the API, completing the full-stack architecture. Vuebnb will then be prepared for production and deployed to a free Heroku cloud server.

To create a new migration, use the make:migration Artisan CLI command. The argument of the command should be a snake-cased description of what the migration will do:

$ php artisan make:migration create_listings_table

You'll now see your new migration in the database/migrations directory. You'll notice the filename has a prefixed timestamp, such as 2017_06_20_133317_create_listings_table.php. The timestamp allows Laravel to determine the proper order of the migrations, in case it needs to run more than one at a time.

Your new migration declares a class that extends Migration. It overrides two methods: up, which is used to add new tables, columns, or indexes to your database; and...
