I am looking to start a new side project, for which I now have a clear idea of what it needs to do, some nice designs and a fitting market I think. I am excited to get started, but I want to decide on the architecture.
In the past I have built many web apps using different technologies, and lately I've been using Laravel with VueJS and absolutely loving the speed and dev experience. Highly recommended.
However, I cannot ignore the awesomeness of universal/progressive web applications. Mainly, I am looking at NuxtJS powered by Laravel API.
The reason why I am writing this is because I am looking for other good reasons to go with NuxtJS + API backend route. Has anyone done this before and seen benefits or is it just hype? Any other good reasons apart from having offline page and ability to install the app?
