Vuex Data Model and Feature Module Strategy Part 2: Feature Modules

In this article, we extend the functionality of our very simple demo application from the previous article to display multiple paginated lists for the same content type. The paginated list feature module does not fetch any data itself but instead connects to the data model module.

Should I Store This Data in Vuex?

When first starting with Vuex, most people wonder what data should be stored in Vuex in the first place? In the journey of answering this question, for many people (including me) comes what I call the “Let's Store Everything in Vuex” phase.

How to Handle Multi-row Forms with Vue, Vuex and vuex-map-fields

In one of my previous articles about form field handling in combination with Vuex, I introduced the vuex-map-fields package, which allows to conveniently map a list of fields to Vuex conform getter and setter functions. In today's article we take it a step further and we'll explore how we can use the latest release of vuex-map-fields to build a Vuex powered multi-row form...
