Open Source Code - Guess Right

I put the code for my 'Guess Right' game on GitHub. It includes the Vue files, Vuex state files, Laravel routes, model, controller, and migration files. It also provides a link to a flowchart diagram and a couple mockups I did for the game.

Loving My First Front-End Framework

I'm proud to announce I've fallen in love with my first framework; Vue. Well, second actually, with Laravel being my first. Both of these have helped to bring me into the world of... now?

Both have allowed me to create a mini-site showcasing Laravel, with Keep Track and Pick-a-Meal, and now Vue, with Guess Right.

"Guess Right" is my latest reincarnation, in that I took an old PHP program I wrote for Facebook, and completely rewrote it with Vue. I capitalized on Vue's reactive data, and fell in love with its templating system and state control. Combined with some Laravel and MySQL on the back-end made for quite a fun-thinking and manageable development environment.

Tada!: https://kdcinfo.com/guessright/

The primary technologies I've covered in the last 2-1/2 months, converging to help make this little web app a functional success, are as follows:
- HTML5 (tags, data attributes) / CSS3
- Laravel 5.2 / Blade
- Vue.js 2.1.10 / ES2015 (ES6) / Axios
- vuex
- vue-router
- Sass (SCSS)
- Gulp, webpack, npm, vue-loader, Babel, Laravel Elixir, Apache
