Vue.js Starter

Do you need the superior UX of a progressive app? Vue Starter is an SPA template for server-rendered PWAs. It includes Vuex and Vue Router configured to work with server-side rendering (SSR) out of the box.

This project has put a lot of thought into ensuring your deployed project has amazing UX right from the beginning, like internationalization for multiple language support and a Lighthouse score of 90+ thanks to SSR and caching with service worker.

Additionally, document head tag management with vue-meta is used for SEO, while SSR ensures that your page will be indexed by search engines that support JavaScript content.



Quick scaffolding

Create components, connected components, modules - and their tests - right from the CLI!

Instant feedback

Enjoy the best DX (Developer eXperience) and code your app at the speed of thought!
Your saved changes to the CSS and TypeScript are reflected instantaneously without refreshing the page.
Preserve application state even when you update something in the underlying code!

SEO (with vue-meta)

We support SEO (document head tags management) and server-side-rendering for search engines
that support indexing of JavaScript content. (eg. Google)


Offline-first support with service-workers and a lighthouse score as high as possible (for me - 90+).

Enterprise ready

Common style guide, TypeScript and the best test setup: Automatically guarantee code quality and non-breaking changes.

Animations (with anime.js)

A stable animations set up already included.


A flexible component library that'll be extended over time.


Storybook for Vue is a UI development environment for UI components. It allows interactive development, testing and sharing of UI components in various property states.

Industry-standard i18n internationalization support

Scalable apps need to support multiple languages, easily add and support multiple languages with vue-i18n.

Predictable state management

Centralized State Management with vuex.

Routing with data prefetching

Server-side-rendering of prefetched data and transferring state from server to client.


Default configuration is stored in /src/app/config/default.json, which can get overridden by providing valid JSON in the environment variable CONFIG on application startup or by an environment specific file.
For instance, in order to set a custom API endpoint, run CONFIG='{"api":{"baseUrl": "http://custom.api.endpoint/"}}' npm run start. Check documentation of config module.
