express-vue-dev

Vue.js development server middleware for Express.js.

This is a middleware for Express.js and provides a fully featured development server built on top of Webpack which renders the Vue.js application for client-side and server-side. The middleware is configurable and supports hot module replacement out of the box. This middleware should be used in development only. Please check the express-vue-builder middleware for a production ready alternative.

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

Usage

To create a middleware, create a Webpack configuration objects for client-side and server-side, then pass it the the devServer method. Use the vue-webpack package to simplify the setup.

const {build} = require('vue-webpack');
const {devServer} = require('express-vue-dev');

let middleware = devServer({
  server: build({
    mode: 'server',
    inputFilePath: `./app/server-entry.js` // Vue application entry file for server-side
  }),
  client: build({
    mode: 'client',
    inputFilePath: `./app/client-entry.js` // Vue application entry file for client-side
  })
}); // pass this to app.use() of your Express application

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