Alpine.js Essentials

Alpine.js is a relatively new JavaScript framework for defining behavior directly in your markup. While similar to frameworks like Angular and Vue, you may find that Alpine is a bit more light-weight and portable. In this series, one step at a time, I'll get you up and running as quickly as possible.

      Before we dig into Alpine, let's first build something simple, but demonstrative of what your typical workflow might look like. Please note that this episode will move a bit more quickly and is not intended to be your "Step 1" for learning Alpine. Just come along for the ride, and then, in the next episode, we'll hit the breaks, rewind, and start learning each piece of the puzzle from scratch.

      Let's begin with the basics. Alpine allows us to easily bind the value of an attribute to an expression. In this lesson, we'll review a variety of simple examples.

      In this lesson, you'll learn how to toggle an element's display dependent upon on a piece of state. As you'll find, so many of the bread-and-butter components that all websites share can be reduced to a simple on/off switch. Show the modal, hide the modal. Show the tab, hide the tab.

      You're currently familiar with one-direction data binding; however, often you'll require two-way binding in your forms. It's not enough to bind a value to an input. We also need to listen for when the input's value changes, and update the underlying data. We can allow for this by using x-model. In this episode, we'll review what precisely happens when you add this attribute to a form input. Then, as a small demo, we'll use that data to submit an AJAX request to a fake server.

      Alpine does not require you to store all logic as HTML attribute values. When necessary, you can easily reference a global function that returns an object. Here, you can declare your component's data and behavior separately from the HTML. In this episode, we'll use a basic task app example to discuss how (and when) to extract component logic. We'll also review some important considerations when bundling your code.

      Let's move on to transitions. Alpine offers a useful transition modifier that instantly applies a simple opacity and scale fade when toggling the display of an element. However, when you require more precision, you can easily hook into each step of the transition. Let's learn how in this episode before moving on to a real-life use case.
