Vue CLI - Developing Faster!

I recently released my course on the Vue CLI with Pluralsight course (December 31, 2018) and I'd like to share what's inside! Here is the overview ... Do you want to learn to develop Vue apps quickly while following the recommended tooling? In this course, Developing Faster with the Vue CLI, you will gain the ability to build Vue apps efficiently with the Vue CLI and popular Vue developer tools. First, you will learn what the Vue CLI does, how to install it, and how to use it to generate and serve Vue apps. Next, you will discover the various options and outcomes of using the CLI to build apps, libraries, and web components. Finally, you will explore how to add...


Associate File Types in VS Code

I love a good editor. All of the great tooling, intellisense, auto-complete and all of the goodness and efficiency. Intelligent tooling is a huge part of what makes our day fun. Don't you agree? For example, when I open Visual Studio Code (aka VS Code) and it recognizes the file type I am editing, it lights up all of the relevant tooling features. Typescript, JavaScript, docker files, Vue files … it all works great! Sometimes we have to load an extension to make some of these light up (e.g. Vue files with the Vetur extension). So you can understand it makes me sad when I open a file and I get zero help from the tool. No color coding of...


Vue.js with TypeScript

I spent a few days on and off learning parts of Vue to write a small app. I wrote the same app with Angular. I'm sharing my experience of working through Vue for the first time to help others that may be curious about the JavaScript framework landscape. This post explores how I refactored the Vue app to use TypeScript. The two places I found the most help were in this (Microsoft resource](https://github.com/microsoft/typescript-vue-starter) and the Vue docs. Neither was exactly what I needed, but together they were helpful in gaining success. Read on to learn more. Disclaimer: This was my first attempt at using TypeScript in Vue. My intent is to share the journey, not...


A Look at Angular Alongside Vue - Familiar Code

I spent a few days on and off learning parts of Vue to write a small app. I wrote the same app with Angular. I'm sharing my experience of working through Vue for the first time to help others that may be curious about the JavaScript framework landscape. This post explores the code for both the Angular and Vue apps. Spoiler: you'll find that the code and concepts are very similar. :) I had a lot of fun working through Vue with Sarah Drasner. Pair programming or simply just talking to friends about code is a great way to learn and share ideas. We all benefit when we learn to enjoy and embrace the similarities and the differences that help push...


A Look at Angular Alongside Vue - Learning Materials

I spent a few days on and off learning parts of Vue to write a small app. I wrote the same app with Angular. I'm sharing my experience of working through Vue for the first time to help others that may be curious about the JavaScript framework landscape. This time I want to share where I went for learning materials and how they worked out for me. Here are the posts in this series, if you want to catch up or jump around: Post 1 - File Structure Post 2 - Learning Materials Post 3 - Familiar Code Post 4 - Vue with TypeScript Learning Materials OK, I admit ... at first, I didn't use any learning materials. I googled Vue...
