vue-webpack-boilerplate

A full-featured Webpack setup with hot-reload, lint-on-save, unit testing & css extraction.

This template is Vue 2.0 compatible. For Vue 1.x use this command: vue init webpack#1.0 my-project

Documentation

  • For this template: common questions specific to this template are answered and each part is described in greater detail
  • For Vue 2.0: general information about how to work with Vue, not specific to this template

Usage

This is a project template for vue-cli. It is recommended to use npm 3+ for a more efficient dependency tree.

$ npm install -g vue-cli
$ vue init webpack my-project
$ cd my-project
$ npm install
$ npm run dev

This will scaffold the project using the master branch. If you wish to use the latest version of the webpack template, do the following instead:

$ vue init webpack#develop my-project

⚠️ The develop branch is not considered stable and can contain bugs or not build at all, so use at your own risk.

The development server will run on port 8080 by default. If that port is already in use on your machine, the next free port will be used.
