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...

A Vue directive has five possible hooks. We used just one, bind. It's bound directly to the element and component. It gets three arguments: element, binding, and vnode.

When we add the directive in the main.js file to Vue, we make it available everywhere in our application, so the directive is already at App.vue to be used by the input.

At the same time we call v-input-mask on the input element, we pass the first argument, element, to the directive, and the second argument, binding, is the value of the attribute.

Our directive works by checking each new character value on the input. A Regex test is executed and validates the character to see whether it is a valid character on the token list that was given on the directive instantiation. Then, it returns the character if it passes the test, or returns nothing if it's an invalid character.
