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...

The class component needs to understand what are the navigation guards that are being added to the Vue prototype before executing the Vue application. Because of this, we needed to import the custom hooks on the first line of the main.ts file.

In the component, with the hooks registered, it's possible to add them as methods because the vue-class-component has made all those custom imports into base methods for the component decorator.

We used two of the vue-router navigation guards' hooks. Those hooks are called each time a route will enter or leave. The first two parameters we didn't use, the to and from parameters, are the ones that carry information about the future route and the past route.

The next function is always required because it executes a route change. If no argument is passed in the function, the route will continue with the one that was called, but if you want to change the route on the fly, it is possible to pass an argument to change where the user will go.
