In this course, we'll build out a Vue.js front-end fine tuned for interaction with a Laravel powered REST API.
Vue has held a special place in the front-end for Laravel developers since 2015. It started when the Laravel creator Taylor Otwell tweeted: "Learning @vuejs because it looks easy and has pretty website." Since then, many companies have paired the two technologies to create powerful and flexible web applications.
Over time, there have been many approaches to pairing the 2. It's possible to sprinkle in Vue.js just on the front-end with the bulk of the work done in blade templates. Inertia.js enables creating modern single-page Vue apps using classic server-side routing (dubbed "the modern monolith"). It's also common to use Laravel to power a REST API that a completely seperate Vue.js application can utilze as the backend.
In this course, we'll take the last approach. We'll provide a fully functional Laravel backend for you to startup locally and then together we'll build out a front-end to interact with it. Along the way, you'll learn not only how to interact with the REST API from Vue but we'll also peak behind the curtain of how the server side Laravel application assembles it's responses.
They'll be plenty of tips and tricks throughout the course, specific to working with Vue.js with a Laravel backend. Things like: setting up auth, handling form validation errors, efficiently and elegantly fetching data, handling with pagination, and more!
