About the Bundle

These days it's pretty standard to build your application with a separation of the frontend and backend logic. Frontend is done pretty well in JavaScript in the browser using awesome frameworks like Vue.js 2, and the backends will usually be some server-side language knocking out JSON.

With this bundle, you can learn how to do all of that stuff. Yaaaaay!

API development is becoming increasingly common for server-side developers thanks to the rise of front-end JavaScript frameworks, iPhone applications, and API-centric architectures. It might seem like grabbing stuff from a data source and shoving it out as JSON would be easy, but surviving changes in business logic, database schema updates, new features, or deprecated endpoints can be a nightmare.

After finding many of the existing resources for API development to be lacking, Phil learned a lot of things the hard way through years of trial and error. This book aims to condense that experience, taking examples and explanations further than the trivial apples and pears nonsense tutorials often provide.

Phil worked primarily as an API developer for the last three years. One horror was managing an API built in FuelPHP by a freelancer at the million dollar startup he joined. It was utilizing a then deprecated ORM which had been hacked to death by the previous developer, so took the time to delete that mess and build the next version in Laravel, leveraging it's simple routing, database migrations, schema, seeding, etc. When the following major version of the API was built no rewrite was required, and both managed to live side-by-side on the same "API" servers.

By passing on some best practices and general good advice you can hit the ground running with API development, combined with some horror stories and how they were overcome/avoided/averted. This book will discuss the theory of designing and building APIs in any language or framework, with this theory applied in PHP-based examples.

Some of the more advanced topics covered here are endpoint testing, embedding data objects in a consistent and scalable manner, paginating responses (including embedded objects) and hypermedia "HATEOAS" controls.

TL;DR: This title is the updated version of The Majesty of Vue.js, which sold over 700 copies, and was considered one of the first and top learning resources for the Vue.js framework. The book will be constantly updated to keep up with Vue.js 2 changes and new chapters will be added for a long time.

This book is addressed to anyone interested in learning Vue.js. It is useful for developers who are new to Vue.js as well as those who already use Vue.js and want to expand their knowledge. It is also helpful for developers who are looking to migrate to Vue.js 2.

A percentage (20%) of book earnings will be donated to Evan You to support the excellent work he's doing with the Vue framework.

This book will guide you through the path of the rapidly spreading Javascript Framework called Vue.js!

Some time ago, we started a new project based on Laravel and Vue.js. After thoroughly reading Vue.js' guide and a few tutorials, we discovered a lack of resources about Vue.js around the web. During the development of our project, we gained a lot of experience, so we came up with the idea to write this book in order to share our acquired knowledge with the world. Now that Vue.js 2 is out we decided it was time to update our book by publishing a second version where all examples and their relative contents are rewritten.

The book is written in an informal, intuitive, and easy-to-follow format, wherein all examples are appropriately detailed enough to provide adequate guidance to everyone. We’ll start with the very basics and through many examples, we’ll cover the most significant features of Vue.js 2.

The best way to learn code is to write code, so we have prepared one exercise at the end of most chapters for you to solve and actually test yourself on what you have learned. We have also updated the exercises and solutions for Vue 2, and strongly recommend you to try as much as possible to solve them in order to gain a better understanding of Vue.js.

By the end of this book, you will be able to create fast front end applications and increase the performance of your existing projects with Vue.js integration. 

Who is this book for

Everyone who has spent time to learn modern web development has seen Bootstrap, Javascript, and many Javascript frameworks.

This book is for anyone interested in learning a lightweight and simple Javascript framework.

No excessive knowledge is required, though it would be good to be familiar with HTML and Javascript. If you don't know what the difference is between a string and an object, maybe you need to do some digging first.

This book is also useful for any reader who already know their way around Vue.js and want to expand their knowledge.

About the Authors

Phil Sturgeon
Phil Sturgeon

Phil has seen a few trends come and go during a long and varied career of building stuff for money as an employee, freelancer, consultant and now CTO. One trend over recent years is the rise of APIs as an everyday part of the average server-side developers job.

Back in 2009 Phil released a CodeIgniter Rest Server, wrote a few articles about how to use it and built handfuls of APIs for his freelance clients. This tool was fairly basic, but covered HTTP-based routing, HTTP Basic/Digest/API Key authentication, added logging and throttling and did not force CRUD-based conventions. The internet seemed to like it, and this code is still used by Apple, the UN and USA.gov.

Later on as a core-contributor to FuelPHP he added this functionality to the core, and again built out a bunch of APIs for people. Then he got a job in NYC, to take over as Lead Engineer for a company that - you guessed it - had a FuelPHP API and wanted to improve it.

After two years of working on their API, Phil has moved to Ride.com, building their API with an amazing team of developers.

Phil has been building APIs for so long, he has come up with a very long list of ways to make them not suck, and he'd like to share the information with you all.
