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 to do it...

First, we need to create our Vue CLI project. To find how to create a Vue CLI project, please check the 'Creating your first project with Vue CLI' recipe. We can use the one we created in the last recipe or start a new one. Now, follow the instructions to add a plugin:

  1. Open the Vue UI interface. Open Terminal (macOS or Linux) or Command Prompt/PowerShell (Windows) and execute the following command:
> vue ui
  1. A new browser window will appear, with the Vue UI interface:

Here, you can list your projects, create a new project, or import an existing one.

  1. Now, we will import the one we created:

You need to find the folder that you created and click on Import this folder.

  1. After the folder is imported, the default Dashboard of the project will appear:

Here, it's possible to customize your Dashboard, adding new widgets, by clicking on the Customize button on the top:

  1. To add a new plugin, you must click on the Plugins menu in the left-hand sidebar:

The base plugins that you added on the Vue CLI tool will be already listed here.

  1. Now, we will add the base Vue ecosystem plugins—vuex and vue-router:

  1. If you check your code, you will see that the main.js file was changed, and the vuex (store) and vue-router (router) plugins are now imported and injected to the Vue instance:
