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.

Adding Buefy to the Vue-CLI project

To use Bulma in a Vue project, we are going to use the Buefy UI library. This library is a wrapper around the Bulma framework and provides all the components that are available with the original framework and some additional components to use:

  1. In the folder that you created for your Vue-CLI project, open Terminal (macOS or Linux) or Command Prompt/PowerShell (Windows) and execute the following command:
> vue add buefy
  1. Vue-CLI will ask whether you want to choose a style to work with Buefy; we will go with scss:
? Add Buefy style? (Use arrow keys)
  1. Then, Vue-CLI will ask whether you want to include the Material Design icons; for this project, we won't use them:
? Include Material Design Icons? (y/N) n
  1. Now Vue-CLI will ask whether you want to include Font Awesome icons; we will add them to the project:
? Include Font Awesome Icons? (y/N) y
