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 the customer frontend

Now that we have finished with the admin frontend, we finish this chapter's project by creating the customer's frontend. This is similar to the admin frontend except that there is no authentication required to use it.

We start by installing the same packages that we installed for the admin frontend. So, we go to the frontend folder and run the following command to install all the packages:

npm i vee-validate@next vue-router@4 yup vuex@4 vuex-persistedstate@ ^4.0.0-beta.3 graphql graphql-request

We need Vuex with the Vuex-Persistedstate plugin to store the shopping cart items. The rest of the packages are the same as for the admin frontend.

Creating the plugins folder

We create a plugins folder in the src folder and add the routes by creating the router.js file in the folder and writing the following code:

import { createRouter, createWebHashHistory } from 'vue-router'
import Shop from '@/views/Shop'
