Overview of this book

Vue.js is a progressive web framework for building professional user interfaces for your web applications. With Vue.js 3, the frontend framework is reinforced with architectural enhancements, new base languages, new render processes, and separated core components. The book starts with recipes for implementing Vue.js 3’s new features in your web development projects and migrating your existing Vue.js apps to the latest version. You will get up and running with TypeScript with Vue.js and find succinct solutions to common challenges and pitfalls faced in implementing components, derivatives, and animation, through to building plugins, adding state management, routing, and developing complete single-page applications (SPAs). As you advance, you'll discover recipes to help you integrate Vue.js apps with Nuxt.js in order to add server-side rendering capabilities to your SPAs. You'll then learn about the Vue.js ecosystem by exploring modern frameworks such as Quasar, Nuxt.js, Vuex, and Vuetify in your web projects. Finally, the book provides you with solutions for packaging and deploying your Vue.js apps. By the end of this Vue.js book, you'll be able to identify and solve challenges faced in building Vue.js applications and be able to adopt the Vue.js framework for frontend web projects of any scale.

How it works...

require.context is a webpack built-in function that receives a directory to execute a search, a Boolean flag indicating whether subdirectories are included in this search, and a regular expression for the pattern matching for the filename (all as arguments).

When the building process starts, webpack will search for all the require.context functions, and will pre-execute them, so the files needed on the import will be there for the final build.

In our case, we passed ./modules for the folder, false to not search in subdirectories, and /^(?!.*test).*\.js$/is as the Regex to search for .js files and ignore the files that have .test in their names.

Then, the function will search for the files and will pass the result through a for loop to add the content of the files in the array of vuex modules.
