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.

Well done. You have made it this far. It is been quite a journey. In this chapter, we covered JavaScript linters and formatters, notably ESLint, Prettier, and StandardJS for Nuxt apps and also for JavaScript apps in general. You have learned how to install and configure them for your needs and preferences. We also covered the Nuxt commands to deploy Nuxt apps and the options available for hosting the Nuxt app, whether it is a universal SSR app or a static generated site.

In the coming chapter, we will learn how to create an SPA with Nuxt and deploy it to GitHub Pages. You will see the slight difference between traditional SPAs and the SPA in Nuxt (let's called it Nuxt SPA). We will guide you through the process of setting up the SPA development environment in Nuxt, refactoring the universal SSR Nuxt authentication app that you have created in the previous chapters, and turning it into a Nuxt SPA and a static-generated Nuxt SPA. Lastly, you will learn to deploy the static...
