This video is an introduction to the terminology used in this course and for Vue, which will enable you to understand Vue better.           


 In this video, we will learn the importance of Vue and create a shopping list application using Vue.           

The Importance of Vue.js and Working with Vue.js

Using Vue.js in a project is simple. In this video, we will see how to avoid any extra work with other frameworks and use Vue.js           

Using Vue.js in an Existing Project

Vue.js was made better with the release of Vue.js 2.0. In this video, we will look at the release of Vue.js 2.0 and the projects that were made using Vue.js 2.0.           

Vue.js 2.0! and Projects Using Vue.js

After learning about Vue, we will get started with creating an application. In this video, we will create an application, Pomodoro timer.

Fundamentals – Installing and Using
7 Lectures 46:22

In this video, we will learn about the MVVM (Model View View Model) pattern, which helps in binding Model to the view and vice versa.

Preview 02:23

All Vue properties go through the DefineProperty method, which assigns getters and setters to them. This is what makes the binding so strong. Let’s learn about them!

DefineProperty, Getters, and Setters

Whenever you try a new tool, you want to compare it with other tools. In this video, we will compare Vue with other frameworks.

Comparing with Other Frameworks

Before putting our hands into the code and starting to enhance our applications with components, plugins, mixins, templates, and other things, let's overview the main Vue features.

Vue.js Fundamentals

In this video, we will analyze all possible ways to install Vue.js. We will also learn debugging and testing our application

Installing, Using a Vue.js Application

Debugging is necessary for a Vue application. In this video, we will debug our application.

Debugging Your Vue Application

Scaffolding our applications is necessary so that the reusable components can be used in them. In this video, we will scaffold the application

Scaffolding Our Applications
Components – Understanding and Using
6 Lectures 42:13

Components are an important part of any Vue Application. So, we will create and use a component in our application

Preview 10:06

Now that we have learnt about components, we will use them to rewrite our application.

Rewriting the Shopping List with Simple Components

Single-file components are better to work with. Vue provides a lot of features with single-file components. In this video, we will learn about single file components.

Single-File Components

In this video, we will rewrite our application using single-file components, about which we learnt in the previous video.

Rewriting Our Shopping List Application with Single-File Components

As we rewrote our shopping list application, similarly, we will rewrite our Pomodoro application using single-file components.

Rewriting the Pomodoro Application with Single-File Components

With Vue, you can use the special transition wrapper component to specify the CSS transition to use on data changing. We will learn about that here.

Reactive Binding of CSS Transitions
Reactivity – Binding Data to Your Application
3 Lectures 36:31

Data binding is a mechanism of propagating changes from the data to the visible layer and vice versa. We will revisit all the different ways of data binding and apply them to our applications.

Preview 04:40

Vue supports full JavaScript expressions inside the data binding brackets! By adding any JavaScript expression to the template of Pomodoro application components, filters are applied to the result of the expression.

Using Expressions and Filters

V-bind directive allows binding an element's attribute or a component property to an expression. The v-if directive allows to conditionally render the whole element.

Revisiting and Applying Directives
Vuex – Managing State in Your Application
6 Lectures 59:27

In this video, we will change the title component using events.

Preview 08:56

In this video, we will learn the importance of the global state store. We will understand Vuex and its store.

Introduction to Vuex and the Global State Store

Greetings are important to users who use your application. In this video, we are going to create a greetings example to see Vuex in action.

Greetings with Store

In this video, we will install Vuex and import the store to our application.

Installing and Using the Vuex Store in Our Applications

In this video, we are going to take a look at changing the title, finding shopping lists by ID with the help of the Vuex store.

Using the Vuex Store in the Shopping List Application

In this video, we are going to animate our pause, stop, and run buttons, and improving the time interface of the Pomodoro timer using the Vuex store. We will also add a few changes to make the timer fun.

Using the Vuex Store in the Pomodoro Application
Plugins – Building Your House with Your Own Bricks
2 Lectures 36:19

Plugins written for Vue can provide various functionalities, starting from the definition of some global Vue methods or even the instance methods. Let’s use the existing resource plugin for Vue.

Preview 22:07

Now that we know how to use thye existing plugins with our Vue application, why not create our own plugin? We already have a little bit of animation in our Pomodoro application. It would be nice to add some sounds to our Pomodoro!

Creating and Using a Plugin in the Pomodoro Application
Testing – Time to Test What We have Done So Far!
6 Lectures 40:08

Before we start writing unit tests, let's try to understand what we're trying to achieve by writing them. Why is unit testing so important?

Preview 04:26

Let's check on some particularities of unit testing our Vue application and its components. In order to be able to write tests for the component instance, first of all, it should be instantiated!

Unit Tests for Vue Applications

Before starting the actual writing of our unit tests, let's establish some rules. For each of our .js or .vue files, there will exist a corresponding test spec file, which will have the same name and a .spec.js extension

Writing Unit Tests for the Shopping List Application

In this video, we will write unit tests for our pomodoro application to test it.

Writing Unit Tests for Our Pomodoro Application

End-to-end (e2e) testing is a technique in which the whole flow of the application is being tested. In this kind of testing, neither mocks nor stubs are used, and the real system is being under the test.

End-to- end Testing and Nightwatch e2e

So, now that we know all the theory behind the UI testing, we can create our first end-to-end test for our Pomodoro application. Let's define the steps that we will perform and the things that we should test.

Writing e2e Tests for the Pomodoro Application
Deploying – Time to Go Live!

Deploying web applications, it means that there will be a public URL, and any person will be able to type this URL on their browser and access the application.

Preview 08:49

In this section, we will prepare the application to run on Heroku.

Deploying the Pomodoro Application

In this section, we will perform a similar procedure and deploy our shopping list application.

What Is Next?
3 Lectures 15:32

We applied the most important concepts of Vue to make our applications reactive, fast, maintainable, and testable. However, it’s important to know that Vue 2.0 has been launched. It brings some new possibilities and some new things to learn and use.

Preview 02:52

Let's check again what we have done so far. We have developed two applications using Vue.js. Let's revisit them.

Revisiting Our Applications

In the previous video, we summarized what the applications that we have developed are doing. They are nice but lack features, style, identity, UX patterns, extension to other platforms, and so on. Let's check what we can still do.
