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.

However, we still have mock data hard-coded into the frontend app. In this last part of the chapter, we're going to remove that hard-coded data and replace it with data from the backend.


Currently, the home route, that is, /, loads our frontend app. But what we've built for our frontend app so far is not meant to be a home page! We'll be building that in future chapters.

What we've built is the listing page, which should be at a route like /listing/5, where 5 is the ID of the mock data listing being used.



Home page


Listing page


Let's modify the route to reflect this.



use App\Listing;

Route::get('/listing/{listing}', function ($id) {
  return view('app');

Just like in our api/listing/{listing} route, the dynamic...
