Learn the intricacies of modern, full-fledged web development by building a modern (and fun!) Instagram filter app. Under the hood you'll leverage Vue, TypeScript and WebAssembly to create a modern application that utilizes best practices, gain valuable experience building custom composables and with the Composition API, and have a project that will wow employers!

What you'll learn

  • Understand best practices for building custom composables within the Vue framework
  • Utilize modern technologies such as WebAssembly (WASM) for image processing and integrating WASM packages into Vite's build process
  • Gain practical experience with the Composition API, HTML5 canvas API for image manipulation, and TypeScript annotations for debugging, enhancing skills in Vue development and TypeScript integration
  • Explore practical usage of the Composition API within Vue.js, enhancing your understanding of Vue.js architecture and state management
  • Develop proficiency in integrating WebAssembly (WASM) into web applications for efficient image processing, expanding your toolkit for building dynamic and interactive web experiences
  • Enhance your ability to debug and maintain Vue.js applications by learning TypeScript annotations and applying best practices for code readability and maintainability

Why Is This Vue Project Awesome?

Because it's the perfect opportunity for you to advance your skills as a Vue Developer!

Don't be fooled by the project size - a lot of modern technologies are utilized here in order to build a modern image application.

Under the hood, you'll leverage WebAssembly to process images and integrate a WASM package into Vite's build process. Plus this project will give you the opportunity to use the Composition API in a practical scenario.

During the building process we'll take the time to discuss the HTML5 canvas API for drawing, manipulating, and downloading images.

TypeScript is also going to be a major player in this project. Learning how to correctly annotate variables is going to help us debug the application.

Lastly, you'll learn the best practices for building custom composables - something we see junior Vue Developers doing incorrectly with all the time!
