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.

Structuring Vuex store modules

In a Vue app, as long as you comply with the enforced rules we went through in the previous sections, there are no strict restrictions on how you should structure your store. Depending on how complex your store is, there are two recommended structures in this book that you can use in the following sections. Let's get started.

Creating a simple store module structure

In this simple module structure, you can have a /store/ directory that contains a /modules/ directory that keeps all the modules in this folder. Here are the steps to create this simple project structure:

  1. Create a /store/ directory with a /modules/ directory in it with the store modules, as follows:
// vuex-sfc/structuring-modules/basic/
├── index.html
├── entry.js
├── components
│ ├── app.vue
│ └── ...
└── store
├── index.js
