Building Forms with Vue.js

By: Marina Mosti

Overview of this book

Almost every web application and site out there handles user input in one way or another, from registration forms and log-in handling to registration and landing pages. Building Forms with Vue.js follows a step-by-step approach to help you create an efficient user interface (UI) and seamless user experience (UX) by building quick and easy-to-use forms. You’ll get off to a steady start by setting up the demo project. Next, you’ll get to grips with component composition from creating reusable form components through to implementing the custom input components. To further help you develop a convenient user input experience, the book will show you how to enhance custom inputs with v-mask. As you progress, you’ll get up to speed with using Vuelidate and Vuex to effectively integrate your forms. You’ll learn how to create forms that use global state, reactive instant user input validation and input masking, along with ensuring that they are completely schema-driven and connected to your application’s API. Every chapter builds on the concepts learned in the previous chapter, while also allowing you to skip ahead to the topics you’re most interested in. By the end of this book, you will have gained the skills you need to transform even the simplest form into a crafted user and developer experience with Vue.

A quick look at the project structure

Go ahead and open your new vuetiful-forms folder in your favorite code editor. If you don't already have an IDE for development, you can get a really good one for free from

Your project structure will look like the following screenshot:

Here is a quick rundown of what you can find inside the structure:

  • node_modules: This holds your dependencies—the code packages that you can install or remove using npm.
  • public: This folder will hold index.html, which your web server will load up when you navigate to the app's URL. All of the files that it will need will be auto-injected by Vue, so you don't need to worry about what happens here.
  • src: This is where you will put all of your code, components, assets, and so on.

On your project root, you will see a configuration file like .eslintrc.js for your ESLint configuration, .gitignore for Git, your package.json and package-lock.json or yarn.lock files for package management, and others depending on your previous choices.

These files are used for changing preferences on each one of these services and can be safely ignored if you don't have experience tweaking them.
