Overview of this book

With its huge ecosystem and wide adoption, Vue is one of the leading frameworks thanks to its ease of use when developing applications. However, it can get challenging for aspiring Vue.js developers to make sense of the ecosystem and build meaningful applications. This book will help you understand how you can leverage Vue effectively to develop impressive apps quickly using its latest version – Vue 3.0. The book takes an example-based approach to help you get to grips with the basics of Vue 3 and create a simple application by exploring features such as components and directives. You'll then enhance your app building skills by learning how to test the app with Jest and Vue Test Utils. As you advance, you'll understand how to write non-web apps with Vue 3, create cross-platform desktop apps with the Electron plugin, and build a multi-purpose mobile app with Vue and Ionic. You'll also be able to develop web apps with Vue 3 that interact well with GraphQL APIs. Finally, you'll build a chat app that performs real-time communication using Vue 3 and Laravel. By the end of this Vue.js book, you'll have developed the skills you need to build real-world apps using Vue 3 by working through a range of projects.

So, we can build apps that are beyond simple apps using a few components with Vue Router. This allows us to map different URLs to different components. This way, we can go to different URLs and have different components rendered. The URLs can have query strings, hashes, and URL parameters in them, and they will be parsed automatically by Vue Router. They will be matched with the route patterns listed in the route definition arrays.

Routes can be nested, and they can have names so that we can identify them by their name rather than their route pattern. Additionally, we can have a catchall or a 404 route to enable us to display something when none of the route patterns listed in our route definitions are matched.

Vue Router also has methods for programmatic navigation, which are named in the same way as the ones in the browser history API and can be called with the same arguments.

Additionally, we learned how to restrict some routes from being displayed unless certain...
