By: Ajdin Imsirovic

Overview of this book

Vue.js is the latest trending frontend framework. Simplicity, reactivity, and ?exibility are some of the key benefits that Vue offers to developers. This book will help you learn everything you need to know to build stunning reactive web apps with Vue.js 2 quickly and easily. This book will take you through the Vue 2 framework. You will start by learning the different Vue installation options: CDN, NPM, and Vue CLI. Then we will look at the core concepts of Vue: templates and components – ways to modularize Vue code. You will learn how to utilize directives, which are Vue-specific HTML attributes with additional features. Also, you will see how Vue uses a streamlined approach to development, with reusable methods, computed properties, and watchers, and how it controls state with the help of its data option. You will learn about the concepts of reactive programming in Vue, and how to understand communication between parent and child components. We will take a look at props and slots, working with CSS, filters, and mixins. We will also look at ways to add transitions and animations to Vue apps. Then you will extend Vue by building custom directives and your own plugins. Finally, you will learn about Vuex – a Vue plugin that allows us to centralize state, and also introduce Nuxt, which is a framework that builds on top of Vue and solves some issues of single-page applications. After learning about these components, you will be ready to build your own reactive web apps with Vue.js 2.

Andrea Koutifaris has a passion for programming which he likes to say is in his DNA. At the age of thirteen, he began using his father’s laptop to write his own programs. After graduating high school he enrolled, without a second thought, at the University of Florence, Faculty of Computer Engineering. After being a Java developer for some years, Andrea gradually moved to front-end development which is his passion till date. Having spent too much time fixing problems in messed up code, he is obsessed with good programming and test-driven development which, in his opinion, is the only way to write production quality code. Andrea has authored the book, Vuex Quick Start Guide, published recently by Packt.
