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.

Communication with Socket.IO

To make our backend app communicate with the frontend via Socket.IO, we need the Laravel Echo Server. To do this, we first need to install the Laravel Echo Server npm package globally. We install it by running npm install –g laravel-echo-server. Then we will run this package to create the configuration file for setting up the communication.

To do this, we create a new folder and then run laravel-echo-server init to run the command-line wizard to create the Laravel Echo Server configuration file in the folder. At this point, we can just answer all the questions that are asked with the default settings. This is because we are going to edit the configuration file that it creates once this wizard is done.

Once the wizard is done, we should see the laraval-echo-server.json file in the folder. Now we open it and replace whatever is in there with the following code:

 "authHost": "http://localhost:8000",
