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.

Using Linters, Formatters, and Deployment Commands

Besides writing tests (whether they are end-to-end tests or unit tests), code linting and formatting also are parts of web development. All developers, whether you are a Java, Python, PHP, or JavaScript developer, should know the coding standards in their fields and comply with them to keep your code clean, readable, and formatted for better maintenance in the future. The tools that we commonly use for JavaScript, Vue, and Nuxt apps are ESLint, Prettier, and StandardJS. In this chapter, you will learn to install, configure, and use them with our apps. Finally, after building, testing, and linting your app, you will learn the Nuxt deployment commands to deploy your app to a host.

The topics we will cover in this chapter are the following:

  • Introducing Linters – Prettier, ESLint, and StandardJS
  • Integrating ESLint and Prettier...
