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.

The next step in our demo is to create an actual mock API, which we will then translate into a structure that our renderer understands. Why are we approaching the problem this way?

Perhaps the API was built first, or was made with an earlier version of the frontend in mind that worked in a wildly different way; there are many possibilities, and in this case, we will adjust to an incompatible API to learn how to guard against this.

This approach also ensures that we have a middleman that is going to translate and understand the API for our app. If the API were to change for whatever reason, we could safely just change this middleman to adjust for the changes and, in most cases, not even have to touch any of the internal components of...
