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.

To add TypeScript to a Vue CLI project, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Vue UI interface. Open the Terminal (macOS or Linux) or Command Prompt/PowerShell (Windows) and execute the following command:
> vue ui
  1. On your project, go to the Plugins manager, click on + Add plugin, and search for @vue/cli-plugin-typescript:

  1. Now, click on the Install @vue/cli-plugin-typescript button at the bottom of the page:
  1. You will be asked for some configuration settings after the plugin is downloaded, before the final installation:
    • Use class-style component syntax? Use the vue-class-component plugin with TypeScript.
    • Use Babel alongside TypeScript (required for modern mode, auto-detected polyfills, transpiling JSX)? Activate Babel to transpile TypeScript in addition to the TypeScript compiler.
    • Use ESLint? Use ESLint as a linter for the .ts and .tsx files.
    • Convert all .js files to .ts? Automatically convert all your .js files to .ts files in the installation process.
    • Allow .js files to be compiled? Activate the tsconfig.json flag to accept .js files in the compiler.
  2. After choosing your options, click on Finish the installation.
  3. Now, your project is a TypeScript Vue project, with all the files configured and ready to be coded:
