Part 5 of the Solid Foundations Learning Series
This is an in-depth learning series focused on a specific application: a JavaScript-based suite of single-page applications optimized for use in a microservice environment. We focus on telling the story of “why” and “how” it was built.

In Part 4 of this series, we learned the why and how of adding single-page applications to our server-rendered application. In this blog, we take a small step to the side and talk about our Vue.js app that is added to the reference application. We will specifically focus on how the Vue.js components are added and how the routing is completed within the SPA.

Part 4: Adding Smaller SPAs to An Existing Application

In our prior segments of this series, we addressed being able to add in pages to the application and have them automatically registered with the navigation. We also discussed having Markdown content associated with different pages of the application.

In this segment, we will talk about the philosophy of using smaller single-page applications in place of large ones. We’ll discuss how to add in a single-page application to this application. And we will dive into a couple of the example single-page applications and talk about how they were built specifically….

In Part 2 of our Solid Foundations Learning Series, we covered quite a bit of ground surrounding the discovery of Handlebars files, creating navigation based off of those files, and the routing back to the server based on those files.

Now we’re going to dive back into the Handlebars pages and find out how we’re getting content into the pages when they’re rendered by the server.

The year is 2019 and Command Line Interfaces abound for many of the big name JavaScript frameworks such as Angular CLI, Create React App, and the Vue CLI.

But wouldn’t it be nice to go back to the days when you could just drop a simple script tag on a page and be able to run an application? Well, here is my attempt in trying to accomplish just that.

In this post, we create a working Vue.js web application with standard CRUD functionality and deploy it without any extra dependencies other than the actual application itself.

JavaScript Bake-Off: Angular, React, and Vue

As Keyhole consultants, we are exposed to a plethora of technology stacks and implementations from client project to client project. Particularly with our enterprise clients, great care must go into selecting the best technologies for the company’s technical needs and current landscape. After all, they don’t want to be re-writing the same application in just a couple of years due to lackluster choices and shortage of developers to add functionality.

In this post, we present an open source reference application developed three times using three different frameworks, React, Vue & Angular.
