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.

But if you return to the previous page, the scroll position is remembered by the browser, and you're taken back to the bottom.

The browser can't do this when we've hijacked navigation with Vue Router. So, when you scroll to the bottom of the Vuebnb home page and click a listing in Cuba, let's say, the scroll position is unchanged when the listing page component is loaded. This feels really unnatural to the user, who would expect to be taken to the top of the new page:

Figure 7.17. Scroll position issue after navigating with Vue Router

Vue Router has a scrollbehavior method that allows you to adjust where the page is scrolled when you change routes by simply defining the x and y positions of the horizontal and vertical scroll bars. To keep it simple, and yet to still keep...
