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.

Writing a Vue plugin is simple, and there is no need to learn more about Vue itself. The basic concept of a plugin is an object that needs to have an install function, which will be executed when called by the Vue.use() method. The install function will receive two arguments: Vue, and the options that will be used to instantiate the plugin.

Follow these instructions to write a plugin that adds two new functions to the Vue global prototype, $localStorage and $sessionStorage:

  1. In our project, we need to create a file inside the src/plugin folder named storageManipulator.js.
  2. In this file, we will create the plugin installation object – we'll add the default plugin options and the base prototype for the functions:
/* eslint no-param-reassign: 0 */

const defaultOption = {
useSaveFunction: true,
useRetrieveFunction: true,
onSave: value => JSON.stringify(value),
onRetrieve: value => JSON.parse(value),

export default {
install(Vue, option) {
const baseOptions...
