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.
