By: Heitor Ramon Ribeiro

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.

Creating the store

Now you have the project with the Vuex library, and we need to create our first store. In the following steps, we will create the Vuex store:

  1. Open the index.js from the src/store folder.
  2. In the state property, add a new key called counter and set the value to 0:
state: {
counter: 0,
  1. In the mutations property, add two new functions, increment and decrement. Both of the functions will have a state argument, which is the current Vuex state object. The increment function will increment the counter by 1 and the decrement function will decrement the counter by 1:
mutations: {
increment: (state) => {
state.counter += 1;
decrement: (state) => {
state.counter -= 1;
  1. Finally, in the actions property, add two new functions, increment and decrement. Both of the functions will have a deconstructed argument, commit, which is a function to call the Vuex mutation. In each function, we will execute the commit function, passing as a parameter the name of...
