About the Book

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.

If you are looking for more advanced topics like Vuex, Firebase, etc, check out Vue School.

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.
