Vue can’t actually do authentication all by itself, —we’ll need another service for that, so we’ll be using another service (Firebase) for that, but then integrating the whole experience in Vue.… Read article “Tackling Authentication With Vue Using RESTful APIs”


APIs and Authentication on the Jamstack

The first “A” in the Jamstack stands for “APIs” and is a key contributor to what makes working with static sites so powerful.

Often, accessing an API requires validating the authenticity of a request. This frequently manifests in the form of authentication (auth) and can be done either client side or server side depending on the service used and the … Read article “APIs and Authentication on the Jamstack”


Building a Real-Time Chat App with React and Firebase
