You might remember that I had written a tutorial titled, Simple User Login in a Vue.js Web Application, which demonstrated how to navigate between routes and check a variable to determine if a user should in fact be allowed to be on a particular route. This previous tutorial focused on applying logic after the user had already completed the navigation process, rather than during or prior. While this is a good introduction to becoming familiar with the Vue.js router, it isn’t a realistic approach to handling user login and route restrictions.
The recommended approach is to use navigation guards, sometimes referred to as route guards.Read More
So how do you interact with a GraphQL API using something like Angular, React, or Vue.js?
Not too long ago I had written a tutorial titled, U2F Authentication with a YubiKey Using Node.js and jQuery, which demonstrated how to use hardware keys as a means of universal two-factor (U2F) authentication. However, I had left some things to be desired in that previous post. For example, the previous tutorial did not use proper session management with Express.js and it used jQuery, which is neat, but by no means is as popular as some of the other web frameworks that currently exist.Read More
A long time ago when I had been exploring session management in Node.js, I had written a tutorial titled, Session Management in Your Express.js Web Application. This was a basic tutorial that is still very functional today, however little things have changed since then when it comes to how the web works. For example, in 2015 HTTPS was never a requirement and we weren’t exposed to all the frontend web frameworks that exist today.
When you start introducing things into your web applications such as HTTPS or micro-services that operate on different origins or ports, or frontend frameworks, session management can get a little more complicated. We’re going to see how to maintain a session for a user using Node.js with Express.js on our backend and Vue.js on our frontend, in this tutorial.Read More
I had written a few tutorials a while back around Electron, and even one with Vue.js, but in that example the Vue CLI and Webpack were not part of the equation. In this tutorial, we’re going to see how to create a new Vue.js application using the Vue CLI, configure it for use with Electron, and then deploy it in all its glory.Read More
We’re going to see how to take a NativeScript application that uses Vue.js and build an Android binary for release using a signing key and some command line magic.Read More
In this tutorial we will build a simple Vue.js application which will demonstrate the power of using Vuex as a central data store, where the data will be asynchronously retrieved using Axios for the API requests.
