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.

Adding a Vuex Store

Having a database system such as MongoDB to manage our data is great, as we can use it to remotely request data for our routes whenever required. However, occasionally, we need to share some data across pages or components, and we don't want to make additional and unnecessary HTTP requests for this kind of data. Ideally, we would like to have a central place in our local app where we can store this "omnipresent" and centralized data. Fortunately, we have a system called Vuex to store this kind of data for us, and that is what you will explore in this chapter. So, in this chapter, you will learn how to use Vuex for state management (centralized data management) in your apps. You will learn about the Vuex architecture, its core concepts, and the suggested directory structure for managing modular Vuex stores. Lastly, you will learn how to activate...
