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 allow the user to peruse these images, we're going to create an image carousel. This carousel will replace the static image that currently occupies the modal window that pops up when you click the header of a listing.

Begin by opening the app view. Remove the static image and replace it with a custom HTML element image-carousel.

A component can be referred to in your code by a kebab-case name such as my-component, a PascalCase name such as MyComponent, or a camelCase name such as myComponent. Vue sees these all as the same component. However, in a DOM or string template, the component should always be kebab-cased. Vue doesn't enforce...
