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.

In this chapter, we have covered Vue form validation with v-model on the various form inputs. You have learned basic and dynamic value binding, and how to use modifiers to change the default input event and typecast. You also have learned to use the vee-validate plugin to make the validation easier. Finally, we managed to apply these to the Nuxt app.

In the next chapter, we are going to explore how to add a server-side framework in Nuxt apps. You will learn to create a simple API with Koa and integrate it with Nuxt, and request the API data using asyncData with the HTTP client, Axios. Also, you will be introduced to a minimalistic build system based on webpack, called Backpack, which will simplify the custom webpack configuration that we have been using for the single-file component Vue apps. You will learn how to use this build system in Nuxt apps, too. So, stay tuned!
