Vue.js 2 Academy: Learn Vue Step by Step [Video]

Overview of this book

Vue.js is a fun and easy-to-use JavaScript framework for building user interfaces. From easily adding it to an existing website or application to just control a part of it, such as adding new components, through to using it for medium or large single-page applications, you can improve productivity in several ways. The course will guide you through building two challenging yet exciting projects, which will help you apply everything you learn. You’ll begin with a guest list app where users can add their name to an event guest list. Although this is a simple app, you’ll learn several Vue.js essentials while building it such as two-way data binding, event handling, templates and the Virtual DOM, and instance properties - data, computed, watchers, methods, and filters. You will then build on your knowledge by creating a greeting card application where users can create and edit their custom greeting card. They will be able to add their text and images to create a personalised card. This project will get you up to speed with components (local, global, and single file), installing Node and NPM, passing data with $emit, and storing and retrieving images from Firebase. In addition to this, you’ll make use of Vue CLI to scaffold your projects with build tools such as Webpack and Babel. By the end of this course, you will be well-versed with Vue.js and have gained hands-on experience in applying it effectively in your projects.

Emit data to parent components
In this application, we want to create components to display the different sides of our greeting card We also want to switch between these components when the user clicks on the menu links using dynamic components allows us to achieve this effect. We can switch between multiple components and place them in the same mounting point and all we need to do is use the reserved component element.
