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.

Registering global and local components

We have created many components either using Vue.component(), plain JavaScript objects, or single-file components engines. Some of the components we've created have been global components, while some of them have been local components. For example, all the refactored components you just created in the /components/ directory in the previous section are local ones, while the components you created in the What is a component? section are global ones. Whether they are local or global components, they have to be registered if you want to use them. Some of them are registered at the time of their creation, while some of them are registered manually. In the following sections, you will learn how to register them globally and locally. You will also learn about the two types of registration that will affect your app. We will be looking at registering Vue components, instead of passing around them.
