Vue CLI plugin that provides auto routing feature.

Overview

Ensure you are in a project generated by Vue CLI v3. You install this plugin by running the following command:

$ vue add auto-routing

After adding the plugin, the file structure will be the below.

src/
├── pages/
├── layouts/
└── router.js

Pages

.vue files under the pages/ directory will be automatically resolved to generate routing. Vue Router routes options will be configured with the file structure under the pages/. The generated routing is same with Nuxt's routing.

Note that directories and files started and ended with __ (two underscores, e.g. __foo__.vue) will be ignored.

For example, when you have the following page components:

pages/
├── __partial__.vue
├── index.vue
├── users.vue
└── users/
    └── _id.vue

It is resolved to the below routes. Note that _ prefixed components generate dynamic routing.

export default [
  {
    name: 'index',
    path: '/',
    component: () => import('@/pages/index.vue')
  },
  {
    name: 'users',
    path: '/users',
    component: () => import('@/pages/users.vue'),
    children: [
      {
        name: 'users-id',
        path: ':id?',
        component: () => import('@/pages/users/_id.vue')
      }
    ]
  }
]

If you want to make route param required, create a directory for the param and add index.vue in the directory. In the above example, if you replace users/_id.vue with users/_id/index.vue, :id param will be required.

<route-meta> custom block

If a page component has <route-meta> custom block, the content json will be used as route meta field.

For example, if index.vue has the following <route-meta> block:

<route-meta>
{
  "requiresAuth": true
}
</route-meta>

<template>
  <h1>Hello</h1>
</template>

The generated route config is like the following:

module.exports = [
  {
    name: 'index',
    path: '/',
    component: () => import('@/pages/index.vue'),
    meta: {
      requiresAuth: true
    }
  }
]

Layouts

Components under the layouts/ directory will be used as shared layout component in the application. You can choose a layout by specifying layout component option in a page component. The default value of layout is 'default'. That means when you omit layout options, layouts/default.vue will be choosed as the layout component. This is the same concept with Nuxt's layouts.

For example, when you have layouts/foo.vue and pages/index.vue:

<!-- layouts/foo.vue -->
<template>
  <div>
    <h1>Foo Layout</h1>
    <router-view/>
  </div>
</template>
<!-- pages/index.vue -->
<template>
  <p>index.vue</p>
</template>

<script>
export default {
  // You can specify layout component name here (default value is 'default')
  layout: 'foo'
}
</script>

The following html will be rendered:

<div>
  <h1>Foo Layout</h1>
  <p>index.vue</p>
</div>
