Creating Your First Vue App


VueJS is a JavaScript Framework that allows developers to more easily build user interfaces through JavaScript. I like Vue because it is easier to use when I want to make dynamic and interactive web pages.

Create an app with 3 commands

If you have a Node package manager installed globally (i.e. - NPM or Yarn), you can create your first Vue App in as little as three terminal commands. I will show the process using Yarn:

  1. Install the @vue/cli package globally:
    yarn global add @vue/cli
  2. Create the Vue app and cd into the app's root directory (you can change your app's name by replacing app with your desired name):
    vue create app && cd app
  3. Serve the Vue app using the Vue CLI:
    yarn serve

You should see some terminal output that looks like this:

 DONE  Compiled successfully in 4359ms                                       8:31:51 PM

  App running at:
  - Local:   http://localhost:8080/ 
  - Network: http://<YOUR_LOCAL_IP_ADDRESS>:8080/

  Note that the development build is not optimized.
  To create a production build, run npm run build.

And if you go to localhost:8080 in your browser, you should see a webpage that looks like this:
