In this post, we will show you how to install Vue.js on Arch Linux.
- A fresh Arch Linux server on the Atlantic.Net Cloud Platform
- A root password configured on your server
Step 1 – Create Atlantic.Net Cloud Server
First, log in to your Atlantic.Net Cloud Server. Create a new server, choosing Arch Linux as the operating system with at least 2GB RAM. Connect to your Cloud Server via SSH and log in using the credentials highlighted at the top of the page.
Step 2 – Configure Repository
By default, the default repository is outdated in Arch Linux, so you will need to modify the default mirror list. You can do it by editing the mirrorlist configuration file:
Remove all lines and add the following lines:
## Score: 0.7, United States Server = http://mirror.us.leaseweb.net/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch ## Score: 0.8, United States Server = http://lug.mtu.edu/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch Server = http://mirror.nl.leaseweb.net/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch ## Score: 0.9, United Kingdom Server = http://mirror.bytemark.co.uk/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch ## Score: 1.5, United Kingdom Server = http://mirrors.manchester.m247.com/arch-linux/$repo/os/$arch Server = http://archlinux.dcc.fc.up.pt/$repo/os/$arch ## Score: 6.6, United States Server = http://mirror.cs.pitt.edu/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch ## Score: 6.7, United States Server = http://mirrors.acm.wpi.edu/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch ## Score: 6.8, United States Server = http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch ## Score: 7.1, India Server = http://mirror.cse.iitk.ac.in/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch ## Score: 10.1, United States Server = http://mirrors.xmission.com/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch
Save and close the file, then update all the package indexes with the following command:
Step 3 – Install Node.js
Before starting, Node.js must be installed on your server. You can install it by running the following command.
pacman -S nodejs
After installing Node.js, verify the Node.js version with the following command.
Next, install NPM with the following command.
pacman -S npm
Step 4 – Install Vue.js
First, update NPM to the latest version using the following command.
npm install -g [email protected]
Next, install the Vue CLI with the following command.
npm install -g @vue/cli
You can now verify the Vue.js version with the following command.
Step 5 – Create a Simple Application with Vue.js
Let’s create a simple application named my-app with the following command.
vue create my-app
You should see the following output.
Vue CLI v5.0.8 ? Please pick a preset: (Use arrow keys) ❯ Default ([Vue 3] babel, eslint) Default ([Vue 2] babel, eslint) Manually select features Vue CLI v5.0.8 ✨ Creating project in /root/my-app. 🗃 Initializing git repository... ⚙️ Installing CLI plugins.

Next, navigate to the application directory and start the Vue server with the following command.
cd my-app npm run serve
You will get the following output.
DONE Compiled successfully in 8790ms 11:16:38 PM App running at: - Local: http://localhost:8080/ - Network: unavailable Note that the development build is not optimized. To create a production build, run npm run build.
Step 6 – Access Vue.js Application
At this point, Vue.js is installed on your server. You can now access the Vue.js application using the URL http://your-server-ip:8080. You should see the Vue.js application page on the following screen.
In this tutorial, we explained how to install Vue.js on Arch Linux. We also showed you how to create a simple application using Vue.js. You can now start building interactive web applications using the Vue.js framework. You can try to install Vue.js on dedicated hosting from Atlantic.Net!
