Jump Start Vue.js

Book Description

Get up to speed with Vue.js in a weekend!

Since its release in 2014, Vue.js has seen a meteoric rise to popularity and is now considered one of the primary front-end frameworks, and not without good reason. Its component-based architecture was designed to be flexible and easy to adopt, making it just as easy to integrate into projects and use alongside non-Vue code as it is to build complex client-side applications.

This short book is ideal for front-end developers who need a rapid introduction to Vue.js. It covers:

  • Basic concepts: how Vue works, tempmlates, and reactive data
  • Components: custom components, events and slots
  • State management: Vuex, mutations, actions
  • Routes: creating routes, links and route guards
  • Nuxt.js
  • And much more!
