# Vue Frontend Setup

To start using this dashboard you will need to to install some dependencies or copy some files to your project.


# Steps to install

  1. Navigate to your Vue Argon Dashboard project folder: cd your-vue-argon-dashbord-project
  2. Install project dependencies: npm install
  3. Create a new .env file: cp .env.example .env
  4. VUE_APP_BASE_URL should contain the URL of your Vue Argon Dashboard Project (eg. http://localhost:8080/)
  5. VUE_APP_API_BASE_URL should contain the URL of your Laravel JSON:API Project. (eg. http://localhost:3000/api/v1)
  6. Run npm run dev to start the application in a local development environment or npm run build to build release distributables.

# Argon Dashboard

Argon Dashboard is built as Vue plugin so you can simply import it and use it.

import Vue from "vue";
import Dashboard from "@/plugins/dashboard-plugin";
Vue.use(Dashboard);

# Global Components

Argon comes with an extensive set of custom Vue components. Some of them are globally instantiated so it's easier to use them across the app without importing them each time.

Here's the list of global components:

  • Badge
  • BaseAlert
  • BaseButton
  • BaseCheckbox
  • BaseInput
  • BaseDropdown
  • BaseNav
  • BasePagination
  • BaseProgress
  • BaseRadio
  • BaseSlider
  • BaseSwitch
  • BaseHeader
  • Card
  • StatsCard
  • Modal
  • RouteBreadcrumb
  • ElInput (element-ui)
  • ElTooltip (element-ui)
  • ElPopover (element-ui)
  • Sidebar
  • SidebarItem

# Local components

Besides the components mentioned above, we have some extra components/plugins that are usually less used and bigger. In order to not affect the overall bundle size of the Argon Dashboard, they should be imported locally.

You can find the components inside src/components/ folder.

# Starter template

To get started faster, we provide a starter template inside the project. It's a bare bones layout with nav, footer and a hello world. To enable it go to main.js and change line 3



 

import Vue from "vue";
import App from "./App.vue";
import router from "./routes/starterRouter";
