Vue.js Generator

Bootstrap a Vue.js application using vue-cli:

vue init webpack-simple my-app
cd my-app

Install the required dependencies:

yarn add vue-router vuex vuex-map-fields babel-plugin-transform-builtin-extend babel-preset-es2015 babel-preset-stage-2 lodash

Optionally, install Bootstrap and Font Awesome to get an app that looks good:

yarn add bootstrap font-awesome

To generate all the code you need for a given resource run the following command:

npx @api-platform/client-generator https://demo.api-platform.com src/ --generator vue --resource book

Replace the URL with the entrypoint of your Hydra-enabled API. Omit the resource flag to generate files for all resource types exposed by the API.

The code is ready to be executed! Register the generated routes and store modules. Here is an example:

// main.js
import Vue from 'vue'
import Vuex from 'vuex';
import VueRouter from 'vue-router';
import App from './App.vue';
import 'bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.css';
import 'font-awesome/css/font-awesome.css';
import book from './store/modules/book/';
import bookRoutes from './router/book';

Vue.config.productionTip = false;


const store = new Vuex.Store({
  modules: {

const router = new VueRouter({
  mode: 'history',
  routes: [

new Vue({
  render: h => h(App),

Make sure to update the Babel configuration:

// .babelrc
  "presets": [
    ["es2015", { "modules": false }],
  "plugins": [
    ["babel-plugin-transform-builtin-extend", {
      globals: ["Error", "Array"]

Go to https://localhost/books/ to start using your app. That's all!
