HackerNews clone built with Vue 2.0 + vue-router + vuex, with server-side rendering.
Note: in practice, it is unnecessary to code-split for an app of this size (where each async chunk is only a few kilobytes), nor is it optimal to extract an extra CSS file (which is only 1kb) — they are used simply because this is a demo app showcasing all the supported features.

A Note on Performance
This is a demo primarily aimed at explaining how to build a server-side rendered Vue app, as a companion to our SSR documentation. There are a few things we probably won’t do in production if we were optimizing for performance, for example:
In practice, it is unnecessary to code-split for an app of this size (where each async chunk is only a few kilobytes so the extra request isn’t really worth it), nor is it optimal to extract an extra CSS file (which is only 1kb).
It is therefore not recommended to use this app as a reference for Vue SSR performance – instead, do your own benchmarking, and make sure to measure and optimize based on your actual app constraints.
