Hands-on Nuxt.js Web Development

By: Lau Tiam Kok

Overview of this book

Nuxt.js is a progressive web framework built on top of Vue.js for server-side rendering (SSR). With Nuxt.js and Vue.js, building universal and static-generated applications from scratch is now easier than ever before. This book starts with an introduction to Nuxt.js and its constituents as a universal SSR framework. You'll learn the fundamentals of Nuxt.js and find out how you can integrate it with the latest version of Vue.js. You'll then explore the Nuxt.js directory structure and set up your first Nuxt.js project using pages, views, routing, and Vue components. With the help of practical examples, you'll learn how to connect your Nuxt.js application with the backend API by exploring your Nuxt.js application’s configuration, plugins, modules, middleware, and the Vuex store. The book shows you how you can turn your Nuxt.js application into a universal or static-generated application by working with REST and GraphQL APIs over HTTP requests. Finally, you'll get to grips with security techniques using authorization, package your Nuxt.js application for testing, and deploy it to production. By the end of this web development book, you'll have developed a solid understanding of using Nuxt.js for your projects and be able to build secure, end-to-end tested, and scalable web applications with SSR, data handling, and SEO capabilities.

Integrating MongoDB with Koa

We have studied a handful of MongoDB queries for performing CRUD operations through the MongoDB Shell. Now we only need the MongoDB driver to help us to connect to the MongoDB server and perform the same CRUD operations that we did with the MongoDB Shell. We will install this driver in our app as a dependency in our server-side framework – Koa.

Installing the MongoDB driver

The official MongoDB driver is mongodb for Node.js apps. It is a high-level API, built on top of the MongoDB Core driver, mongodb-core, a low-level API. The former is made for end users, while the latter is made for MongoDB library developers. mongodb contains abstractions and helpers that make MongoDB connections, CRUD operations, and authentication easy, while mongodb-core only contains the basic management of MongoDB topology connections, core CRUD operations, and authentication.
