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.

Adding Vue Forms

In this chapter, you will create forms with v-model and v-bind. You will learn to validate forms on the client side before sending the form data to the server. You will create forms with basic elements, binding dynamic values and using modifiers to modify the input element's behavior. You will also learn to use the vee-validate plugin for validating forms and applying it to Nuxt apps. It is important to learn and understand how to use v-model and v-bind with Vue forms in this chapter because we will use forms in the coming chapters, such as in Chapter 10, Adding a Vuex Store, and Chapter 12, Creating User Logins and API Authentication.

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

  • Understanding v-model
  • Validating forms with basic data bindings
  • Making dynamic value bindings
  • Validating forms with vee-validate
  • Applying Vue forms in Nuxt
