Vue.js 3 Cookbook

By: Heitor Ramon Ribeiro

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.

Developing SSR (Server-Side Rendering)

To develop SSR, we first need to inform Quasar that we want to add a new mode of development. Open Terminal (macOS or Linux) or the Command Prompt/PowerShell (Windows) and execute the following command:

> quasar mode add ssr

Quasar-CLI will create a folder called src-ssr that will have our extension and server starter files, separated from our main code.

The extension file is not transpiled by babel and runs on the Node.js context, so it is the same environment as an Express or Nuxt.js application. You can use server plugins, such as database, fileread, and filewrites.

The server starter files will be our index.js file in the src-ssr folder. As the extension, it is not transpiled by babel and runs on the Node.js context. For the HTTP server, it uses Express, and if you configure quasar.conf.js to pass the client a PWA, you can have an SSR with PWA at the same time.
