Vue use with plugins

The easiest way to use Vue use with Nuxt.js is to load it as plugins.

// plugins/particles.ts

import Vue from 'vue';
import VueParticlesBg from "particles-bg-vue";

Vue.use(VueParticlesBg);

Change the configuration of nuxt.config.ts to load the above plugins with Nuxt.js.

// nuxt.config.ts
export default {
  mode: 'spa',
  env: {},
  head: {
    title: process.env.npm_package_name || '',
    meta: [
      { charset: "utf-8" },
      { name: "viewport", content: "width=device-width, initial-scale=1" },
      {
        hid: "description",
        name: "description",
        content: process.env.npm_package_description || ''
      }
    ],
    link: [
      { rel: "icon", type: "image/x-icon", href: "/favicon.ico" }
    ]
  },
  loading: { color: "#3B8070" },
  css: [],
  plugins: ['@/plugins/compositionAPI', '@/plugins/particles'],

Hit particles in layouts in common

When assigning a layout in common to Nuxt.js, declare it in layouts and use it on each page

//layouts/default.vue
<template>
  <div class="app">
    <particles-bg type="circle" :bg="true" /> 
    <nuxt/>
  </div>
</template>

Please confirm the README: Parameter Description of particles-bg-vue for the contents to be set to type.

<span id="layouts"></span>

Load layouts

Load the layouts created above for the page where you want to hit the particles.

This time I will use the latest Vue.js API Vue Composition API as an example.

For example, if you want to hit the top page (index)

<template>
  <section class="section">
    <div class="container">
      <hoge  prop="hogeeee!!"/>
    </div>
  </section>
</template>

<script lang="ts">
  import {
    createComponent,
    reactive,
    onMounted,
    computed,
    ref
  } from '@vue/composition-api';
  import FileList from '@/components/hoge.vue';
  export default createComponent({
    layout: 'default', // createComponentでlayoutを呼ぶ
    components: {
      hoge
    },
    setup() {
    }
  })
</script>

Then you can apply

img Easy! !

Conclusion

I just got started with Nuxt.js, but how easy it is to create a cool page! It is an impression.

Postscript (I want to change the canvas style of the particle!)

I've been using particles-bg-vue for a while, and I have a little trouble. img

If you increase the magnification of the browser, the particle canvas does not follow it and protrudes from the clean particle canvas.

So when I checked what I couldn't do, it was written in the README: Parameter Description of particles-bg-vue.

However, since the description is a little difficult to understand, I will add it here.

Create canvasObject

If you check the elements of the particle part with F12 (developer tool) etc., you can see that the particle is expressed with the canvas tag. img

This canvas style can be changed by passing an object called canvasObject to the props of particle-bg.

Furthermore, in the new API of Vue.js, CompositionAPI, the variable passed to template must be passed by return of setup () regardless of whether it is reactive or reactive.

So

<template>
  <div class="app">
    <particles-bg type="circle" :bg="true" :canvas="canvasObject"/> //propsでcanvasObject渡す
    <div id="nav">
      <nuxt-link to="/">Home</nuxt-link> |
      <nuxt-link to="/sample">sample</nuxt-link> |
      <nuxt-link to="/list">list</nuxt-link>
    </div>
    <nuxt/>
  </div>
</template>

<script lang='ts'>
  import {
    createComponent,
    reactive,
    onBeforeMount,
    onUpdated,
    onMounted,
    computed,
    watch,
    ref
  } from '@vue/composition-api';

  const canvasObject = {  //canvasObject宣言
    height: '120%'
    };
  export default createComponent({

    setup () {

      return {
        canvasObject  //templateで使うのでreturn
      };
    }
  });
</script>

And try img

The style is changed correctly,

img

A canvas as expected!
