express-vue-builder

Vue.js server-side rendering middleware for Express.js.

This package provides production-ready server-side Vue.js application rendering middleware for Express.js. It creates a new instance of VueRender class (provided by the vue-builder dependency) and installs it to the request object as req.vue variable.

This is an open source package for Vue.js and Express.js. The source code is available on GitHub where you can also find our issue tracker.

Examples

Install

Run the command below to install the package.

$ npm install --save express-vue-builder vue-builder

Usage

Before we deploy application in production, we need to compile our Vue.js application into a bundle. A bundle is simply a file holding application's source code. Because we would like to render application in browsers as well as on the server, we need to build two bundle files - one targeting browsers, the other targeting the server. Check the attached example on how to build a bundle. Check the documentation of the vue-builder package for details.

Once you've created the bundle file for server-side, you can create a middleware.

const {bundleRenderer} = require('express-vue-builder');

let middleware = bundleRenderer(`./dist/server/bundle.js`); // pass this to app.use() of your Express application

Check the included ./example directory or run the npm run example command to start the sample application.
