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.

Introducing PHP

PHP has come a long way. It existed long before Node.js and was created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994. It stood for Personal Home Page originally. The PHP reference implementation is now produced by The PHP Group ( PHP was originally developed as a templating language that allowed us to mix HTML with PHP code itself, just like Twig ( and Pug ( do these days.

Now, PHP is more than just a templating language. Over the years, it has evolved into a general-purpose scripting language and object-oriented language, especially suited for server-side web development. You can still use it for templating, but we should make use of its full power in modern PHP development. If you want to check out what else PHP can do, visit
