Introduction to Vue.js and the Quasar Framework

Introduction to Vue.js and the Quasar Framework

In recent years, we’ve seen a proliferation of JavaScript tools and frameworks, such as Angular and React. I remember when I bought a book about Grunt.js: it was already being dropped by developers, who had started using other tools like Gulp, “the streaming build system”. But anyone who jumped on that train was likely to switch again really fast, because webpack came along and replaced them all.

But among JavaScript frameworks, one has seen particularly rapid growth in recent years: Vue.js. It’s been so popular that its rate of growth has become explosive compared to others in this space.

Vue has become one of the primary contenders due its soft learning curve. It lends itself nicely to gradual implementation. It has a modular, component-based architecture. And it has wide usage and a developed ecosystem of tools. If you’re interested in getting started with Vue, you can check out our book Jump Start Vue.js to start getting on your way to using Vue in your projects.

Vue Tools, Terminology and Landscape

As with most technologies one ventures to master, getting to grips with Vue includes getting to know the terms and concepts, and getting comfortable with its ecosystem of tools and building blocks.

Vue Router is an indispensable part of all Vue single-page applications. It provides navigation control, nested routing, route-view mapping, and many other features.

Vuex is a “state management pattern + library” for Vue apps. It’s like a centralized data store helping us to manage state in our applications, across all components. Handling stage across multiple parts of front-end applications can quickly get out of hand, and thus the need for a comprehensive solution. We talk more about Vuex in our Vuex Beginners Guide.

Vue devtools can make life easier for developers. It helps you keep track of the components, state, and events in our applications. You can find more about this tool in Chapter 2 of our book dedicated to Vue tools.

Vue Cli provides a command-line toolset for building Vue applications — prototyping, fast scaffolding of JavaScript applications with included CSS pre-processors, ESLint, Babel, Typescript support, PWA support, and so on. Vue CLI — especially in its latest incarnation — is a game changer, and presents a little ecosystem of its own. The Vue CLI 3 plugin for building Electron applications is one very good example. We also devoted a whole book to it, the Beginner’s Guide to Vue CLI, so you can dive right in.

Vue Component System is another one of Vue’s strengths. It enables us to modularize our applications, to encapsulate pieces of markup, logic and styling and reuse them.

Vue Cli Plugin Component, by David Desmaisons, helps with development of components to be published on npm.

If you’re looking for a deep dive into these and other Vue.js tools, I recommend you take a look through Vue.js: Tools & Skills.

Awesome Vue is also an excellent resource. It’s an in-depth, categorized, up-to-date collection/repo of all the pieces of the Vue ecosystem and Vue.js resources.

Quasar, the Vue framework we’re covering here, also has Awesome Quasar, an excellent repo page with many useful resources.

Quasar

Vue is a JavaScript framework for building user interfaces. On its own, however, it doesn’t provide actual UI elements, or components, or consistent designs we can use. That’s why, on top of Vue, many UI frameworks have been built, to provide users with reusable, styled components. We can think of it like different takes on Twitter’s Bootstrap — only for Vue.

If you’re interested in finding out more, I recommend taking a look at “Five Vue UI Libraries for Your Next Project”, which is Chapter 3 of Vue.js: Tools & Skills. One serious contender in this space, which we didn’t cover, is Vuetify, a material design component framework with quite a big following. Another one is Quasar.

Quasar is a high performance, Material Design 2, full front-end stack for Vue.js.

It’s an MIT-licensed, simple-to-use but powerful UI kit that supplements Vue.js to provide a full-featured toolset for building responsive front-end apps without having to delve too deep into the scaffolding and configuration.

A page from the Quasar docs

As we can see in the Quasar docs, it comes with a lot of UI components, and layout elements and helpers.

It gives us three ways to bootstrap our app:

  • UMD / Standalone makes it possible to start small, by including scripts and styles we need from a CDN. This method doesn’t rely on VUE CLI or the building of assets.
  • Quasar CLI claims to be “the pride of the Quasar framework”, and is the recommended way of building Quasar applications. It can be used to build:
    • SPAs (single-page apps/websites)
    • SSRs (server-side rendered apps/websites)
    • PWAs (progressive web apps)
    • mobile apps (through Cordova)
    • Electron apps
  • Vue CLI 3 plugin

We’ll follow Quasar team’s recommendation and use Quasar CLI.

Bootstrapping a Quasar App with Quasar CLI

Terminal readout of installed Node and npm versions

Before we install Quasar CLI, we need to make sure we have the right versions of node (>= 8 at the time of writing) and npm (>= 5). If not, we need to either install or update it. Then we can install Quasar CLI:

sudo npm install -g @quasar/cli

Terminal view of Quasar being installed

Now we can use it to bootstrap our projects. Quasar has a thorough documentation on Quasar CLI. We’ll skim through it and discuss most relevant parts.

The command we use is quasar + subcommand. Just quasar will list the commands for us, and quasar <command> --help will get us the help for the given subcommand.

We use quasar create to scaffold a quasar project.

Using Quasar help in the terminal

We’re then presented with a list of choices about the project we want to bootstrap.

Running quasar create in the terminal

After the project is scaffolded, we can cd into the directory and start a development server with quasar dev. The project is built and the browser will open the provisional index page on localhost.

Our provisional index page

Note: for production, once our project is done, we’d be using quasar build to compile our resources.

The dev server provides us with Hot Reload, which preserves the state in the browser through reloads.

Hot Reload is much more than just refreshing your browser when the code changes. It skips the refresh and updates your code on the fly, while maintaining your app’s state (like your Vue’s model data).

As we write code and save our files/Vue components, along with a page reload in the browser, the terminal shell in which we started the dev server will output many errors in the code. This section in Vue.js: Tools & Skills gives a pretty good explanation of why.

Once we’ve bootstrapped our project, we get this directory structure (with the exclusion of node_modules):

Question about SPA (Single Page Applications)

Hey all,

Small background so people know what they are dealing with: I am a developer beginning to learn proper web design and web development. I know basic JS, HTML, CSS, but I think I am best in Python and SQL.

My question is: is a website with a navbar that just hyperlinks to different sections on a SINGLE page considered a Single Page Application (SPA)? For example, the "About" section is the bottommost on the same page, "Contact" above it, etc. I can think of this as a good example: https://y7kim.github.io/agency-jekyll-theme/

I found this link on SPA vs MPA. https://rubygarage.org/blog/single-page-app-vs-multi-page-app Not sure how accurate it is.

For a simple application I intend to develop, would SPA be a better choice?

Thanks!

Converting website to a responsive framework on a legacy platform or switch platform entirely?

I currently run and develop an e-commerce website that uses a legacy platform (oscommerce).

We actually don't have too many issues in terms of our back end/admin but the front end of our site is definitely overdue for some drastic changes.

Our website is not mobile optimized in the slightest. We have some pages that are responsive partially, but basically the entire front end must be redeveloped as there is no responsive menu etc. The site is crap on mobile.

I am extremely hesitant to switch to other platforms as it is not essential really besides the look of the front of the website.

Shopify/magento/woocommerce would both cost a lot more long term compared to what we are paying right now in terms of monthly fees as well as payment processing and addons. besides the cost of monthly subscription, and addons the cost of the credit card processing fees alone are way higher than what we have managed to get to with our current processor. Anyways that is more of a business decision and should be posted in a different subreddit anyways.

needless to say the website would look a lot better on one of those platforms but the added functionality (or loss of functionality in some cases) does not compel me to make that kind of switch. Our current website is not out of the box oscommerce it has been customized a lot over the years so it does not look bad and has a custom feel which I feel a lot of e-com stores lack (although a lot of the feel comes from product photography anyways).

I feel like I am stuck a bit. I don't mind hiring out the job to develop a responsive framework for us. We pay a lot in ppc and the cost to have a mobile site at this point needed. but I don't want to throw away money on designing/converting the website to a new framework only to have to scrap it so soon after.

I guess what my question comes down to is:

  1. do you think it is a large job to convert the website to become responsive what would a ballpark cost be?
  2. Is it a better idea to bite the bullet and switch to a newer platform shortcomings and all?
  3. Any developers on here looking for this type of work? Not sure if this is allowed here..

Device viewport sizes?

Device viewport sizes?

I've used https://vizdevices.yesviz.com in the past before, but it doesn't seem to have the latest 2019 iPads. In fact a lot of sites seemed to have stopped adding devices in the past few years.

Chrome/Firefox inspector responsive mode device list is also generic and doesn't have all the latest devices (I didn't expect it to), and while you can add your own, I must be inputting it correctly since it doesn't display as expected:

https://i.redd.it/8y3cgad6pe131.png

And if it expects me to know the viewport size of the screen ahead of time, I don't know how to calculate that from the physical device resolution that manufactures typically only provide . I'm aware devices scale the screen for legibility.

I don't need this list often, and I'll still debug on the actual device itself, but it's usually a good start and approximation to test on. I feel like this shouldn't be so difficult. Someone save me? Perhaps there is some repository where people put new device info into including CSS viewport sizes?

How to implement an in place background change when scrolling?

I am on mobile; so, I apologize for not being able to show my source code but I have been trying different ways to change background image in place. What do I mean in place. In a typical scroll of full screen elements with different backgrounds, the effect is that the background is actually going upwards. I am trying to make it so that the background is being replaced from bottom to top. Essentially the height of the background of previous section is decreasing while the height of the next section is increasing, based on scroll position.

Here is what I have done so far.

  1. Create a container with 400% height of the viewport (400vh). This is because I have 4 elements in my “parallax” container. This way, the website will scroll based on page scroll.
  2. In each section, create an empty div with background color. This div has 100% width and 100% height. However, the divs are not visible because I used scaleY(0) by default.
  3. Now, based on scroll position, find which section is active and find the threshold (based on a 0-1 scale, scroll position in the page). This is how I calculate the position and get the threshold:

    const topPos = parallaxContainer.getBoundingClientRect().y + window.scrollY; const relativeScroll = window.pageYOffset - topPos; if (relativeScroll < 0) return; sections.forEach(s => { if (relativeScroll > s.offsetTop) { activeSection = s; } }); const threshold = ((relativeScroll % window.innerHeight) / window.innerHeight).toFixed(3); 
    

This threshold value is wrong. I can’t calculate it properly. I try to set scales for each background:

activeSection.querySelector(‘.bg’).style.transform = `scaleY(${1 - threshold})`; nextSection.querySelector(‘.bg’).style.transform = `scaleY(${threshold});` 

I dont even understand where the problem is. I check scale style property of background and it is somewhere in range of (0.01 - 0.09) instead of being (0.1 - 0.9). So, my backgrounds are consistently broken.

Could someone help me understand the issue here? Do you think it is possible to do this without knowing the active section? Basically set up a mathematical equation that calculated the background height automatically based on scroll position and heights of section (these values are all known to me)?

Im having trouble removing the white background from this image

https://res.cloudinary.com/adamscloud/image/upload/v1559233133/ddlogo.png

I've tried a few methods. I don't have Photoshop and am currently on a Linux machine, I found a guide on how to do it with gimp but the image came out messed up, as in the white was removed but the gradient at the top of the letters got removed as well. I also tried using image magick from the command line, and an online .png background remover I found . They all have problems, mainly it seems the gradient change in the grey letters in this logo contain white which gets removed and messes up the image.

I could really use some help here, I don't have a lot of experience with image manipulation. The guides I'm finding are not getting the job done.

How to Stay on Top of Your Finances Without a Budget

If you grumble at the thought of budgeting, you’re not alone.

The Penny Hoarder recently conducted a financial literacy survey of approximately 1,500 adults and found 40% do not budget their money.

Despite the resistance, creating a budget is what most financial professionals recommend, said Holly Peterson, financial consultant and owner of Elite Retirement Strategies in Pocatello, Idaho. But if you hate limiting your spending with a budget, you might want to take a few months off and focus instead on expense tracking.

“By tracking their spending, people can see where they’re overspending or where certain financial problems are,” Peterson said. “For instance, you might realize that you should probably start packing a lunch from home instead of buying every day. But if you’re not confronted with how much money you’re spending each week or month on takeout, you might never feel the need to change.”

Keep a small notebook with you and jot down whenever you make a purchase throughout the day. The day-to-day record keeping may seem tedious, but try your best to stay consistent.

“Everyone makes mistakes, and there might be days where you forget, but track every purchase, even if it’s an impulse buy, and keep up with your tracking,” Peterson said.

She said you may find yourself being less impulsive with your money now that you have to write everything down and hold yourself accountable for what you buy.

Pro Tip

Peterson recommends taking your tracking one step further and color-coding your purchases by spending category or designating between essentials and nonessentials.

If tracking your expenses manually isn’t your style, download a budgeting app that links to your bank and credit card accounts.

Mint is a great example, because it automatically breaks down your spending into categories, like food and entertainment,” Peterson said.

At the end of the week, total everything up and review how you spent your money.

“Tracking your spending is a great way to make sure that your long-term priorities are matching up with your everyday actions,” Peterson said. “If you want to retire by a certain age, but you’re spending too much to add to your retirement fund, you have an issue.”

While expense tracking is a good first step to managing your money, you shouldn’t stop there. After a few months of recording and reviewing what you buy (and making necessary changes), it’s time to — hold the groans — create a budget. Instead of feeling restrictive, however, your new budget should mirror your actual spending while prioritizing what’s important to you.

Peterson said some people dislike budgeting because they aren’t starting with realistic budgets.

“If you’ve never tracked your expenses, you may have no idea how expensive your lifestyle really is, so suddenly cutting down on everything feels painful — when in reality, you could just take a month or two to track your average daily spending and then figure out where there’s room for improvement,” she said.

This was originally published on The Penny Hoarder, which helps millions of readers worldwide earn and save money by sharing unique job opportunities, personal stories, freebies and more. The Inc. 5000 ranked The Penny Hoarder as the fastest-growing private media company in the U.S. in 2017.

How to Create Identity Guidelines That Empower Your Clients

I’ve never really enjoyed writing brand guidelines, I always felt it got in the way of the “real” design work i wanted to be doing. But I also really don’t enjoy designing a carefully thought out, beautifully executed logo only to see it used and abused by a poorly informed client. To work on creating a visual identity and then to send it out into the world with the equivalent of a hastily scrawled map on the back of a cigarette packet is woefully inadequate.

Through research and conversations with some world class identity designers I’ve found a solution to helping clients use their new visual identity to their absolute – a pattern library. We’ve all seen the beautiful digital UI kits, pattern libraries and style guides created by the likes of Mailchimp for their digital products, well its time to start creating similar for identity guidelines.

I’ve found the easiest solution is to establish and understand all the ways the identity is going to be used during the discovery stage. A real deep dive into what the client has in mind for the logo and second guessing uses they might not have thought of means there are no surprises and it can also really help inform the final design.

Here are some guidelines I’ve been using recently – these will all be included in the final identity pattern library.

For Use on Digital

A logo has to be responsive these days, it needs to work on all screen sizes so undoubtedly there will be several different versions of the logo — a desktop version, a different more simplified version for small screen sizes, possibly one for tablets. You may need an even more simplified version for use on the favicon in different sizes and and in different colors for various browsers.

For Use on Social Media

When using the identity in social media remember one size does not fit all on the various platforms — find out which platforms your client uses or may use. have test accounts set up on all the major platforms so you can test the usage as you are designing it. Some platforms use square images some use round. Nobody wants those black edges when the wrong shaped jpg has been used in a profile pic. Mock up each social media platform page to demonstrate how to use the logo and on twitter include a suggested theme color. Also suggest image styles to use in the profile header.

For Use in Emails

What about emails, do they need a file specific for an email signature or a few different versions for Mailchimp. Consider using thumbnail mockups of a couple of different mail chimp layout scenarios so the client can see which logo to use where.  

For Use on Imagery

Does the logotype need to overlay imagery, at what screen size? Again maybe different versions for different size imagery, what about dark imagery and light imagery — show which version to use on which. Demonstrate the type of photography that would be a good fit for them and that would work well with their logo.

For Use on Videos

Which logo needs to be used on videos if the logo is overlaying a video what size and opacity should they use?

For Use in Print

Demonstrate how the variations of the logo can be used on different documents from business cards to brochures, what backgrounds should  the white logo version be used on and what background should the colored version be used on. Whether there are any elements of the document that can be used alone for example shapes or an ampersand used in the logo. These don’t have to be long drawn out full blown documents but thumbnails and mock ups. Things that will enable the client as much as possible. Explain why a certain layout will work best.

Usage Variations

Is there a logotype version or just a logomark, is there a stacked version or a version with a strapline. When should these be used? Will the strapline be used on its own. How will this work? What will it look like? Again show real life scenarios.

Clear Labeling on Files

Label the files clearly and demonstrate their use in real life scenarios through mock ups and detail which file name should be used for which scenario.

Colors

Demonstrate the colors, contrast and variations and show how they can be used and explain why certain scenarios won’t work and demonstrate why. Explain when transparency is appropriate and when it isn’t. Think about what the client truly needs as opposed to what you’ve always sent out. Will they really need a black version of their logo? Might they use it incorrectly if you supply them with one? Explain when PNGs should be used and when Jpegs should be. Explain the color variations that will be experienced from print and digital. Include Hex, CMYK, RGB and Pantone where possible. explain why colors look different in print than digitally

Type

If type is used in the logo explain whether it’s appropriate to use it on other things such as websites, often it isn’t but I’ve seen clients use it because that is what there logo is in. So suggest typefaces that would work really well even if there is not a typeface used in the logo make suggestions for their other collateral.

Conclusion

More than anything I’ve found that mocking up in situ scenarios has been the most effective way of enabling the client. Together with the use of clear and concise language — communication is key. Label files clearly and in a way that will make sense to a client and then reference these in your guidelines so they are not left guessing which one to use. As well as supplying the appropriate files its important to demonstrate each of these versions in the identity guidelines don’t leave them guessing.

I know this seems like a huge amount of work but it is beneficial for everybody involved. The client will feel truly empowered and to go out and use the brand correctly, you will have provided a top notch service to your client, their beautiful new brand will be out in the world showcasing your stunning work  and you will have helped them create a sense of cohesion through everything which will not only reflect well on them but on you too.

UnitedHealth Group Is Hosting a Virtual Job Fair June 6 to Fill Sales Gigs

Fortune 500 company UnitedHealth Group has a host of sales positions up for grabs.

The Minnesota-based health-care behemoth is holding a virtual job fair June 6 to find talented sales representatives. The fully online event will run noon to 3 p.m. Eastern.

Advanced registration is required to attend. The event can be accessed by a smartphone, tablet or computer with a reliable internet connection from anywhere in the U.S., though the open positions related to the hiring event are located in the following areas:

  • Colorado Springs, Colorado
  • Green Bay, Wisconsin
  • Miami, Florida
  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • Roanoke, Virginia

Attendees will learn about the day-to-day of inside sales positions, general information about UnitedHealth Group, employee benefits and will get the opportunity to chat one-on-one with the hiring team.

Pro Tip

Don’t see your area? Don’t fret. Check the UHG job board for open positions nationwide. You can also visit The Penny Hoarder’s Work-From-Home Jobs Portal for 100% remote jobs in related fields.

The inside sales positions are entry-level, and primary responsibilities include fielding incoming calls related to Medicare supplements and health-care plans. Full-time employees get access to a comprehensive benefits package, including:

  • Health, dental, vision, life, short- and long-term disability insurance
  • Paid time off and company holidays
  • 401(k) retirement program
  • Education reimbursement
  • Employee stock options
  • Access to UnitedHealth Group Credit Union and more

As the economy nears full employment, companies have to get creative to find talent to fill open positions. Virtual events are one such way employers connect with potential workers.

Never attended one before? We got you covered. Our guide teaches you everything you need to prepare for a virtual job fair.

Here are the takeaways:

  1. Do your homework. — Just because the job fair is online doesn’t make it any less crucial that you make a good impression. Come to the fair prepared with tailored questions for the hiring manager.
  2. Take care of tech beforehand. — Is your account properly registered? Are your web browser and flash player up to date? Documents organized and ready to go? Don’t forget the motherlode of all tech issues: WiFi. Hardwire your computer with an ethernet cable, if worse comes to worse.
  3. Be interview-ready. — If all goes well, a hiring manager might ask to interview you on-the-spot. So be dressed to impress. Make sure you are in a well-lit, distraction-free area where you can chat. It’s OK if that’s not the case, too. Explain that you are not in the best environment for an interview, and offer alternative times when you are available.
