Vue + Node.js example

In this post, I will show you some Github examples that use Vue with Node.js backend. You will see Github links for making following projects:

  • Vue + Node.js with MySQL
  • Vue + Node.js with PostgreSQL
  • Vue + Node.js with MongoDB
  • Vue + Node.js with SQL Server (MSSQL)
  • Vue + Node.js: JWT Authentication and Authorization


The Github source code shows many full stack Vue and Node.js eample Projects with CRUD Operations. The back-end server uses Node.js with Express for REST API and specific library for interacting with database. Front-end side is made with Vue 2/Vue 3/Vue Typescript, Vue Router, Axios and Bootstrap.

Each of them is the Tutorial CRUD Application in that:

  • Each Tutorial has id, title, description, published status.
  • We can create, retrieve, update, delete Tutorials.
  • We can also find Tutorials by title.

The images below shows screenshots of our System.

– Retrieve Tutorials:


– Click on Edit button to go to a Tutorial page:


On this Page, you can:

  • change status to Published using Publish button
  • delete the Tutorial using Delete button
  • update the Tutorial details with Update button


– Search Tutorials by title:


How to Run

Node Express server:
Open command line at the project root folder, run:

npm install
node .

The Node App will export Rest APIs at port 8080, CORS configuration for working with port 8081.

Vue Client:
Create .env file with content:


Choose Vue Github source code as you need.
Open command line at the project root folder, run:

npm install
npm start

How to Run Vue and Node.js App on same Port

Assume that we have 2 projects: Vue & Node.

If we run them separately:

  • Node Express Server exports Rest Apis at Url: http://localhost:8080/
  • Vue Client runs at url: http://localhost:8081/

Otherwise, when deploying Vue production-build with Node project, we only need to run Node Project for the fullstack (Vue + Node) system.

In this example, we access http://localhost:8080/ for the UI.

You can find step by step instruction at How to serve/combine Vue App with Express.
