@NdagiStanley has mirrored the fork to have this repo here. This starterpack has proved useful to many and I thank you for the emails I have received from all of you. The reasoning behind this mirror is that; this is an effort to support the users more by developing further on this project. From here on, I am calling on all potential collaborators by making it easier to make PRs and adding the utility of Issues in this 'new' repo (Of course with the same name
😀). Lastly, just so you know, I'll be keeping up with developments in the
A full-featured Webpack setup with hot-reload, lint-on-save, unit testing & css extraction integrated into a django application
Vue CLI Version Notice
If you are using
email@example.com, it will be pulling the
master branch of this template by default. If you are using
firstname.lastname@example.org, it will be pulling the
dist branch instead, which provides more configurable options thanks to new features in
email@example.com. It is recommended to upgrade
vue-cli as soon as you can.
VueJS Templates Documentation
Common topics are discussed in the docs. Make sure to read it!
https://vuedjango.herokuapp.com/ is a deployed instance of this boilerplate.
Vue-Django Docs offer a more comprehensive documentation.
Usage of VueDjango
This is a project template that includes
Django based on the vue-cli templates. It is recommended to use npm 3+ for a more efficient dependency tree.
$ npm install -g vue-cli
You might want to use
sudo if you encounter permissions error
$ vue init NdagiStanley/vue-django my-project # Follow the prompts $ cd my-project $ npm install
$ npm run dev
The app runs on localhost:8080
Update the files as you wish and the hot-reload will take effect. Add
css files within the
static folder in the root directory. Link them to the index.html in that same level (the root directory).
Run the Django server
Have Python installed and preferably use a virtual python environment for this.
$ python -m pip install -r requirements.txt $ sh server.sh
(Run this command every time you make changes)
Ensure that docker is running.
If you use
docker in your workflow, there is a
Dockerfile in the root directory for you. Simply run
docker build -t [image-name] .
Use your preferred image name in place of the
image-name in the command. Remember to enter the trailing period before running it.
There is a docker container for vue-django that you can run. Simply run the following command.
docker run -p 8000:8000 stanmd/vue-django
Then get to localhost:8000. You should have a page exactly like the image above
npm run dev: first-in-class development experience.
