Build a CRUD App with Vue.js, Spring Boot, and Kotlin

Use Vue and GraphQL to Build a Secure App

Use Vue and GraphQL to Build a Secure App

When you develop a new web application, you most likely split the application into two parts. The server-side provides access control and data persistence, while the client-side is mostly presentational. The two parts have to communicate, and your first idea may be to implement a REST API. However, a number of flaws have been identified with the RESTful pattern, mostly related to the flexibility and speed of the request-response pattern. At Facebook, these problems were...

The Lazy Developer's Guide to Authentication with Vue.js

The Lazy Developer's Guide to Authentication with Vue.js

In that spirit, I approached this tutorial using keywords – looking for existing...
