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.

Creating our Ionic Vue mobile app project

We can create our Ionic Vue project by installing the Ionic CLI. First, we must install the Ionic CLI by running the following command:

npm install -g @ionic/cli

Then, we must create our Ionic Vue project by going to the folder where we want our project folder to be running. We can do this with the following command:

ionic start calculator-app sidemenu --type vue

The sidemenu option lets us create an Ionic project with a side menu added to its pages. This will save us time with we're creating the menus and pages. The --type vue option lets us create an Ionic Vue project.

We can get help with all the options and look at an explanation of each by using the following commands:

  • ionic –help
  • ionic <command> --help
  • ionic <command><subcommand> --help

We should run ionic <command> --help in our project directory.
