Overview of this book

In the world of web development, leveraging data is the key to developing comprehensive applications, and RESTful APIs help you to achieve this systematically. This book will guide you in designing and developing web services with the power of TypeScript 3 and Node.js. You'll design REST APIs using best practices for request handling, validation, authentication, and authorization. You'll also understand how to enhance the capabilities of your APIs with ODMs, databases, models and views, as well as asynchronous callbacks. This book will guide you in securing your environment by testing your services and initiating test automation with different testing approaches. Furthermore, you'll get to grips with developing secure, testable, and more efficient code, and be able to scale and deploy TypeScript 3 and Node.js-powered RESTful APIs on cloud platforms such as the Google Cloud Platform. Finally, the book will help you explore microservices and give you an overview of what GraphQL can allow you to do. By the end of this book, you will be able to use RESTful web services to create your APIs for mobile and web apps and other platforms.

Creating a client with Vue.js

Since our microservice is working with GraphQL, we would like to create a simple UI so that we can connect and expose the data we created and interact with it.

Vue.js is a progressive web framework for frontend applications that was created by Evan You. Vue.js stands out because of its simplicity in performing the same tasks as other frameworks.

Since this book is not about Vue.js, we recommend that you go to the Vue.js documentation to learn more:

The first step is to install Vue.js and the Vue.js CLIs:

$ npm install -g @vue/cli-init vue

After that, create a new project called client with the following command:

$ vue init webpack client
