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.

Here's an overview of how the login system works:

  1. The user provides their email and password in a login form. We'll create this form with Vue
  2. The form is submitted to the /login POST route
  3. The LoginController will then verify the user's credentials against the database


  1. If the login is successful, the user is redirected to the home page. A session cookie is attached to the response, which is then passed to all outgoing requests to verify the user

Here's a diagrammatic representation of the login system for further clarity:

LoginPage component

We will need a login page for our app, so let's create a new page component:

$ touch resources/assets/components/LoginPage.vue

We'll begin by defining the template markup, which includes a form with fields for email and...
