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.

To get the most out of this book

To get the most out of this book, you should know the basics of modern JavaScript. Knowing how to program with JavaScript features introduced from 2015 onward would make understanding this book much easier. Basic TypeScript concepts, such as defining interfaces and advanced data types, will be used in Chapter 5, Building a Multipurpose Calculator Mobile App with Ionic.

Also, Chapter 8, Building a Chat App with Vue 3, Laravel, and Socket.IO, covers Laravel, which requires a basic understanding of PHP. The backend portions of the more advanced projects also require understanding very basic SQL syntax. Commands such as Select, Insert, and Create table will be helpful.

The other things required are the latest versions of Node.js and Visual Studio Code. Visual Studio Code supports JavaScript and TypeScript development out of the box. Node.js is required to run Vue CLI and Ionic CLI.

After reading this book, you should try to practice more by creating your own projects. This way, you will utilize the knowledge that you gained from this book. Learning from tutorials is only a start; creating projects on your own will make you proficient.
