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.

Validating forms with basic data bindings

A form is a document for collecting information. The HTML <form> element is a form where the data or information can be collected from the web user. This element requires <input> elements in it to specify what data we want to collect. But before accepting the data, we usually would want to validate and filter it so that we get genuine and correct data from the user.

Vue allows us to validate the data easily from the v-model input elements, so let's get started with a single-file components (SFC) Vue app and webpack, which you learned about in Chapter 5, Adding Vue Components, in the Compiling single-file components with webpack section. First, we will create a very simple form with a submit button and the markups for displaying the error message in the <template> block as follows:

// src/components/basic.vue
<form v-on:submit.prevent="checkForm" action="/" method="post">
<p v-if=&quot...
