Simple demo of using ServiceStack and Nuxt.js together

Modeled after https://github.com/nuxt/example-auth0, with a few additions (separation of backend from frontend, static/ssr page example, http proxy, role-based visibility and functionality ...)

In this demo



Install node packages

# cd into the 'frontend' directory
$ cd frontend

# install dependencies
$ npm install # Or yarn install

Run the ServiceStack backend (will automatically run dotnet restore, build, etc...)

# start the ServiceStack backend in a terminal (from within the frontend directory)
$ npm run server

Alternatively, you can edit this script in 'package.json' to run dotnet watch, etc ...

Run the frontend

# serve with hot reload at localhost:3000, uses http-proxy to connect to ServiceStack api at localhost:5000
# make sure the backend is started first
$ npm run dev:local

# optionally serve with hot reload pointing to a live API url (make sure the API_URL env variable is set,
# uses http-proxy to connect to ServiceStack api)
$ npm run dev


Front-end deployed to Node container

# build for production and launch server (make sure the API_URL env variable is set)
$ npm run build
$ npm start

Front-end deployed to ASP.NET

# generate static project and merge into ServiceStack asp.net project (generates and copies dist to wwwroot)
$ npm run server
$ npm run generate

Typically static pages would be generated against a remote API, in which case, setting an API_URL env variable in the command above would make sense, and there is no need to ever run a local version of the backend locally.

Furthermore, you could then separate the backend into it's own repo and split up nicely the dev effort between both for larger projects.
