Vuex Complete Guide with Axios Api Call in Vue Js

Updated on ・3 min read

An application programming interface (API) is a set of programming standards for accessing an application. This means that with an API, your backend and frontend applications can communicate with each other without the knowledge of the user.

“Consuming” an API means to receive requests and send responses via an API. In this article, you’ll learn how to consume APIs from a server using Vuex and Axios.

Introducing Axios and Vuex

Some frameworks, such as Angular 2, JQuery, and, until version 2.0, Vue.js, come with built-in HTTP APIs. In Vue.js 2.0, the developers decided that the built-in HTTP client module, Vue-resource, was no longer essential and could be replaced by third-party libraries. Now, the most recommended library is Axios.

Axios is a flexible HTTP client library that uses promises by default and runs on both the client and the server, which makes it appropriate for fetching data during server-side rendering. It’s easy to use with Vue.js.

Passing props can be difficult or almost impossible for deeply nested components. It can be tempting to use direct parent/child instance references or try to mutate and synchronize multiple copies of the state via events. Neither of these options are recommended because they may lead to unmaintainable code and bugs.

Vuex is a state management pattern and library for Vue.js applications. It serves as a centralized store for all the components in an application.
