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...

In ECMAScript, export and import are objects with predefined values when we use the export default method. This means that when we import a new component, this component is already being pointed to the default export of that file.

To carry out the lazy loading process, we need to pass a function that will be executed at runtime, and the return of that function will be the part of the code that webpack divides in the bundling process.

When we call this function in vue-router, instead of the direct component import, vue-router does a validation check that the present component import is a function and needs to be executed. After the execution of the function, the response is used as the component that will be displayed on the user's screen.

Because the webpack import() method is asynchronous, this process can happen alongside other code execution, without tempering or blocking the main thread of the JavaScript VM.
