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
- vue-builder: Server-side and client-side rendering for Vue.js.
- express-vue-dev: Vue.js development server middleware for Express.js.
- koa-vue-builder: Vue.js server-side rendering middleware for Koa.js.
- koa-vue-dev: Vue.js development server middleware for Koa.js.
- vue-cli-template: A simple server-side rendering CLI template for Vue.js.
- vue-example: Vue.js example application
Run the command below to install the package.
$ npm install --save express-vue-builder vue-builder
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 = ;let middleware = ; // 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.
