Vue || How To Set Up Vue Login Authentication & Route Handling With Vue Router Using Vue

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The following is a module which demonstrates how to set up Vue login authentication and route handling using Vue Router.

Note: The examples below assumes your project is already set up and configured. For an overview on how to get started with Vue and Vue Router, visit the official documentation.


1. Router Index File

The example below is a sample router index.js file. This file sets up the routes in the project.

There are 3 routes: a ‘Home‘ page, a ‘User‘ page, and a ‘Login‘ page.

The ‘User‘ route has a meta property that says that it requires authentication.

Next, the route records are iterated over to check if the requested page requires authentication. If it does, the route is redirected to the ‘Loginnamed route, with a query string parameter of the original page to redirect to after successful login.


2. Login Route Page

The example below is the ‘Login‘ route page. It doesn’t do anything special, it just demonstrates how to accept user input and redirect to the specified path after successful login is complete.

Accessing the route redirect path can be done by using the ‘query’ property on the route object.
