Creating a link in Vue

An article, posted more than one year ago filed in , , , , , , , , & .

Any HTML is legal, so you can just write a regular link, but if you want to have a fast response, it is recommended that you include Vue Router. This brings two important tags: , which this post is mainly about and.

Creating a link in Vue is as simple as:

Home

This renders a perfectly correct link, using the earlier mentioned a-tag. It even adds a nice bonus, adding an ‘active’ class when that route is active. If you prefer this class on the containing element, do this:

Home

This will render something along the lines of:

Home

Be aware: this is the only valid use-case for the tag-property in vue’s router-link component. Hence be wary if you come across any use of the tag-property, but Vue’s default is good.

You pick up on this link by defining the route ‘home’, make sure your app contains a and attach a component to this route. In the most basic form:

How do I navigate to another page in React or Vue?

An article, posted more than one year ago filed in , , , , , , , , , & .

Congratulations, you started working with one of the popular front-end frameworks. Both Vue and React are excellent choices to create rich and reactive applications. But sometimes, you 'just' want to show the user another page. Whether it is a simple about page, or another 'section' in the app. In this post I will cover both Vue en React and, little bonus, “React on steroids”, NextJS.

It is important to know that you need a router to make in-app pagination work. If you look up router and your favourite framework you're probably find a way to do it, accompanied with some ways to actually not do it. Hence, here I'll focus on the right way.

While you can make everything clickable (or touch-able), it is important that enabling navigation between pages was already a core concept when the web was invented. Even when writing webpages using React, Vue, or most other JavaScript frameworks, it ends up as HTML to the browser (with JavaScript & CSS). HT…

Making block elements link

An article, posted more than 9 years ago filed in , , , , , , & .

There is no standard way of linking block elements to pages in HTML. But sometimes you do need it. The <a>-element doesn't support any block elements inside (such as <div> etc.). I solve the problem with a jQuery snippet that allows me to simply add 'js_blocklink' to a block elements class and the jQuery code deals with the rest. It does assume that the first link is the 'main link' (also needed for graceful degradation when Javascript for some reason is not available). A bonus feature is that other links may still exist, and stay working. function enableJsBlockLinks() {     $(".js_blocklink").each(function() {         $(this).click(function() {             $(this).find("a").each(function(index) {                 a = $(this).attr("href");                 if (a…
