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.

PrimeVue is a UI framework based on Vue 3. This means we can use it for Vue 3 apps. Frameworks that are based on Vue 2 cannot be used by Vue 3 apps because the API has gone through significant changes. The underlying code of Vue 3 is also different from Vue 2. PrimeVue includes a number of common components that we use in web apps, such as text inputs, buttons, menu bars, tables, and more. It is very comprehensive in terms of what is included. Additionally, it comes with styles for items in the form of themes. This means that we can use the built-in components right away. Since PrimeVue is made for Vue 3, we can simply register the components, import the CSS, and use the components in our code. We can also register them either locally or globally depending on which components we need for the given components.
