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.

In this chapter, we looked at how to build a chat app with Laravel and Vue. We built our backend with Laravel and we added controllers to receive requests. And we used the queue system built into Laravel to send data to the frontend. We also added JSON web token authentication into our Laravel app.

On the frontend, we used the Socket.IO client to listen to events sent from the Laravel Echo Server, which gets its data from Laravel via Redis.

Now that we have gone through Vue 3 projects with various levels of difficulty, we can adapt what we learned here to real-life situations. Real-life Vue apps will almost always make HTTP requests to a server. The Axios library makes this easy. Some apps also communicate in real time with the server like the chat app in this chapter.

The only difference is that in real-life apps, there would be checks to see whether the user is authenticated and authorized to send the data to the server.
