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.

Handling forms in a Vuex store

When we use two-way data binding with a v-model in a Vue app, the data in the Vue instance is synchronized with the v-model input field. So, when you type anything into the input field, the data will be updated immediately. However, this will create a problem in a Vuex store because we must not mutate the store state (data) outside the mutations property. Let's take a look at a simple two-way data binding in a Vuex store:

// vuex-non-sfc/handling-forms/v-model.html
<input v-model="user.message" />

const store = new Vuex.Store({
strict: true,
state: {
message: ''

new Vue({
el: 'demo',
store: store,
computed: {
user () {
return this.$store.state.user

For this example, you will see the following error message in your browser's debug tool when typing a message in the input field:

Error: [vuex] do not mutate vuex store state outside mutation handlers.

This is because the v-model attempts...
