Deploying a Vue.js App with ZEIT Now

Learn how to create your Vue.js app and deploy it with ZEIT Now.

Vue.js is an open source JavaScript framework for building user interfaces. It is popularly known for its gentle learning curve and is adopted by a lot of developers for crafting single-page apps (SPAs) globally.

In this guide, we will cover how to deploy a Vue.js app with ZEIT Now.

Step 1: Set Up Your Vue.js Project

First, set up a Vue.js project using the official Vue CLI to quickly scaffold a batteries-included Vue.js SPA.

If you don't have the Vue CLI installed globally, use the following command to install it globally:

npm i -g @vue/cli

Installing Vue CLI global to the system user with npm.

After a successful installation, create a new project and cd into the project folder. Use the following command in your terminal to do so:

vue create vue-project && cd vue-project

Creating a bootstrapped Vue.js project and moving into the directory within a terminal.

An option to choose a preset will be presented to you after running the command above.

After choosing an option, Vue CLI installs all the required dependencies and provisions a new project for you.

Next, to extend the project with client-side routing; install the official Vue.js router by running the following command in your terminal:

vue add router

Installing the Vue.js router with Vue CLI.

Vue CLI adds the router to the project and automatically updates the project files with basic routing functionality.

Step 2: Deploying with Now

With your project set up, you are ready to deploy your Vue.js app with Now.

If you have not yet installed Now, you can do so by installing Now CLI.

You can deploy your Vue.js app with just a single command:

now

Deploying the app with the now command.

Once the app is deployed, you will receive a deployment URL similar to the following: https://my-vue-project-ro3oxryae.now.sh/

You can see that routes were successful by going to the generated /about route directly: https://my-vue-project-ro3oxryae.now.sh/about
