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.

Changing from the Fetch API to Axios

In the next steps, we will change the Fetch API used in the HTTP wrapper for the axios library. Follow these steps to change it correctly:

  1. Install axios in your packages. You need to open Terminal (macOS or Linux) or Command Prompt/PowerShell (Windows) and execute the following command:
> npm install --save axios
The version used in this recipe was 0.19.0. Watch for changes to axios, as there is no LTS version of the library yet.
  1. Open the baseFetch.js file inside the src/http folder.
  2. Simplify the method so that it will receive three arguments, url, method, and options, and return an axios method, calling the HTTP request with the methods passed as the constructor of the instance:
import axios from 'axios';

export default async (url, method, options = {}) => axios({
method: method.toUpperCase(),
