Create Vue Js App

Posted on  by admin

Applies to: Visual Studio Visual Studio for Mac

In this 5-10 minute introduction to the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE), you create and run a simple Vue.js frontend web application.


Make sure to have the following installed:

  • Second example: the Vue CLI default app. If you’ve never created a Vue.js application, I am going to guide you through the task of creating one, and understanding how it works.
  • First I’ll use the most basic example of using Vue.
  • You create an HTML file which contains.
  • and you open it in the browser. That’s your first Vue app!

Create your app

  1. The page should show a “Hello World!” message.

  2. I put the script tags at the end of the body so that they are executed in order after the DOM is loaded. What this code does is, we instantiate a new Vue app, linked to the #example element as its template (it’s defined using a CSS selector usually, but you can also pass in an HTMLElement).

  3. Then, it associates that template to the data object.

Set the project properties

  1. That is a special object that hosts the data we want Vue to render. In the template, the special {{ }} tag indicates that’s some part of the template that’s dynamic, and its content should be looked up in the Vue app data.

  2. You can see this example on Codepen:

Build Your Project

Choose Build > Build Solution to build the project.

Start Your Project

Press F5 or select the Start button at the top of the window, and you'll see a command prompt:

  • Codepen is a little different from using a plain HTML file, and you need to configure it to point to the Vue library location in the Pen settings:.

    Let’s level up the game a little bit.

    The next app we’re going to build is already done, and it’s the Vue CLI default application.

Next, you should see the base Vue.js app appear!
