Because this book is about Vue.js and not about designing APIs, we will provide you a demo API built with Laravel (https://laravel.com/). Laravel is one of the most powerful PHP frameworks along with Symfony2, Nette, CodeIgniter, and Yii2. You are free to create your API using any language or framework you like.

To use our API you have to download the book's code and start a server. To do so, use the following instructions:
$ mkdir ~/themajestyofvuejs ...
