Quasar Framework logo

Build responsive Single Page Apps, SSR Apps, PWAs, Hybrid Mobile Apps and Electron Apps, all using the same codebase!, powered with Vue.


HackerNews clone built with Vue 2.0 + vue-router + vuex + Quasar Framework, with server-side rendering.

Will get rewritten by using Quasar CLI soon

Live Demo

Forked from vue-hackernews-2.0.


Note: in practice, it is unnecessary to code-split for an app of this size (where each async chunk is only a few kilobytes), nor is it optimal to extract an extra CSS file (which is only 1kb) -- they are used simply because this is a demo app showcasing all the supported features. In real apps, you should always measure and optimize based on your actual app constraints.

  • Server Side Rendering
    • Vue + vue-router + vuex working together
    • Server-side data pre-fetching
    • Client-side state & DOM hydration
    • Automatically inlines CSS used by rendered components only
    • Preload / prefetch resource hints
    • Route-level code splitting
  • Progressive Web App
    • App manifest
    • Service worker
    • 100/100 Lighthouse score
  • Single-file Vue Components
    • Hot-reload in development
    • CSS extraction for production
  • Animation
    • Effects when switching route views
    • Real-time list updates with FLIP Animation
