Building a HackerNews Clone in VueJS



Project Outline

The goal of this project is to show you everything it takes to build a complete, fully functioning frontend application using the VueJS framework. We’ll walk through everything from setting up your project, to hitting a few APIs in order to retrieve any articles and rendering these nicely on our site!

Throughout this project we will be integrating with the HackerNews API so that we can focus on the frontend JavaScript code and not have to worry about implementing the backend.

We’ll cover the following topics:

  • Setting up a VueJS project using the vue-cli
  • Creating your first component
  • An introduction to routing in your Single Page Application
  • Hitting API endpoints in your components
  • Dynamic routing in a Single Page Application
