How to build a Meditation App with Vue.js [ Series - Portfolio Apps ]

This is the first episode of "Apps For Your Portfolio" series. In this post, we are going to build a Meditation App with my favorite front-end framework Vue.js.

1.0 / Setup

2.0 / Assets

3.0 / Components

[ 1.1 ] Vue 3 Config

# Install latest stable of Vue

yarn global add @vue/cli
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[ 1.2 ] Creating a new project

# Create a New Vue Application name 'meditation-app'

vue create meditation-app
cd meditation-app
yarn
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[ 1.3 ] Install Vuex & Sass Loader

We also need to install sass-loader pre-processors to animate easily our future timer. If you don't know Sass is an extension of CSS that enables you to use things like variables, nested rules, inline imports and more.

You can find more information on the official documentation :

https://sass-lang.com/documentation

yarn add -D sass-loader sass
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

To help my code organized in this application. I decide to use the state management pattern Vuex.

yarn add vuex@next --save
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

To use Vuex, we need also to change main.js and create a new folder name "store" with four files :

  • index.js
  • actions.js
  • mutations.js
  • getters.js
# ../src/main.js

import { createApp } from 'vue';

import App from './App.vue';
import store from './store/index.js'

const app = createApp(App);

app.use(store);

app.mount('#app');

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
src
|
|-- store |-- actions.js
          |-- getters.js 
          |-- index.js
          |-- mutations.js
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

To build our meditation application, let's initialize all states, actions, mutations and getters as following :

'isPlaying'
'timeSelected'
'vibeSelected'
'step'
'choices'

# ../store/index.js

import { createStore } from 'vuex'

import rootMutations from './mutations.js'
import rootActions from './actions.js'
import rootGetters from './getters.js'

const store = createStore({
  state() {
    return {
      isPlaying: false,
      timeSelected: 0,
      vibeSelected: { value: 'bird'},
      step: 0,
      choices: [
        { 
          id: 1,
          name: '10 minutes',
          imgSrc: require("@/assets/images/Bouton_10_minutes.png"),
          category: 'timer',
          value: 600,
        },
        { 
          id: 2,
          name: '20 minutes',
          imgSrc: require("@/assets/images/Bouton_20_minutes.png"),
          category: 'timer',
          value: 1200,
        },
        { 
          id: 3,
          name: '30 minutes',
          imgSrc: require("@/assets/images/Bouton_30_minutes.png"),
          category: 'timer',
          value: 1800,
        },
        {
          id: 4,
          name: 'In The Space',
          imgSrc: require("@/assets/images/Bouton_Space.png"),
          category: 'vibe',
          value: 'space',
        },
        {
          id: 5,
          name: 'On The Beach',
          imgSrc: require("@/assets/images/Bouton_Beach.png"),
          category: 'vibe',
          value: 'beach',
        },
        {
          id: 6,
          name: 'Under The Rain',
          imgSrc: require("@/assets/images/Bouton_Rain.png"),
          category: 'vibe',
          value: 'rain',
        },
      ]
    }
  },
  mutations: rootMutations,
  actions: rootActions,
  getters: rootGetters,
});

export default store;

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
# ../src/store/actions.js

export default {
  changeTimer(context, time) {
    context.commit('changeTimer', time)
  },
  changeVibe(context, vibe) {
    context.commit('changeVibe', vibe)
  },
  changeStep(context) {
    context.commit('changeStep')
  },
  activeIsPlaying(context) {
    context.commit('activeIsPlaying')
  },
  togglePlayPause(context) {
    context.commit('togglePlayPause')
  },
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
# ../src/store/mutations.js

export default {
  changeTimer(state, time) {
    state.timeSelected = time
  },
  changeVibe(state, vibe) {
    state.vibeSelected = vibe 
  },
  changeStep(state) {
    state.step++
  },
  activeIsPlaying(state) {
    state.isPlaying = true
  },
  togglePlayPause(state) {
    state.isPlaying = !state.isPlaying
  },
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
# ../src/store/getters.js

export default {
  timeSelected(state) {
    return state.timeSelected
  },
  vibeSelected(state) {
    return state.vibeSelected
  },
  step(state) {
    return state.step
  },
  choices(state) {
    return state.choices
  },
  isPlaying(state) {
    return state.isPlaying
  }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Great ! The next step is importing all assets.

Let's create four new folders in assets :

  • images,
  • sounds,
  • svg,
  • videos,
src
|
|-- assets --|-- images
             |-- sounds
             |-- svg
             |-- videos

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[ 2.1 ] Assets Images

Maybe you didn't notice but the state 'choices' is an array of objects. Each object has an attribute 'imgSrc' as this example.

{
  id: 6,
  name: 'Under The Rain',
  imgSrc: require("@/assets/images/Bouton_Rain.png"),
  category: 'vibe',
  value: 'rain',
},
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

As you can see it 'require("@/assets/images/Bouton_Rain.png")' is the path to import the file 'Bouton_Rain.png'

You need to create six illustrations relative to timer and to background video as following :

Button Timer

Alt Text

I took some image from https://unsplash.com/ and resizing it to 375px width | 250px height.

src
|
|-- assets --|-- images -- Bouton_10_minutes.png
                       |-- Bouton_20_minutes.png
                       |-- Bouton_30_minutes.png
                       |-- Bouton_Beach.png
                       |-- Bouton_Rain.png
                       |-- Bouton_Space.png

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[ 2.2 ] Assets Sounds

Alt Text

Download four sound effects from https://www.videvo.net/ and import them in sounds folder.

src
|
|-- assets -- sounds -- beach.mp3
                    |-- calmSpace.mp3
                    |-- rain.mp3
                    |-- songOfBirds.mp3

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

[ 2.3 ] Assets Svg

Create eight components in svg folder :

src
|
|-- assets -- svg -- BeachSvg.vue
                 |-- GithubSvg.vue
                 |-- LinkedInSvg.vue
                 |-- PauseSvg.vue
                 |-- PlaySvg.vue
                 |-- PraySvg.vue
                 |-- RainSvg.vue
                 |-- SpaceSvg.vue

This component change background video depending of user choice.

[ 3.2 ] ContainerPopUp.vue

Unlike the 'ContainerBackground.vue' 'ContainerPopUp.vue' is a nested component. It allow us to encapsulate functionality and easily reuse them in multiple places in this application.

Firstly, Let's create 'ContainerPopUp.vue'

# ../src/components/container/ContainerPopUp.vue

<template>
  <div v-if="step < 2" class="overlay">
    <div class="popup">
      <PraySvg
        size="80"

<script>
import { mapGetters } from 'vuex'

import PraySvg from '@/assets/svg/PraySvg'
import ContainerSelector from '@/components/container/ContainerSelector'
import Selector from '@/components/Selector'

export default {
  components: {
    PraySvg,
    ContainerSelector,
    Selector

  computed: {
    questionDisplaying() {
      if (this.step === 0) {

What do you think ? Nice view right ?

[ 3.5 ] ContainerLinks.vue

When Timer is over, I prepared a last view with my linkedIn, Github and my Portfolio.

You just need to replace links and Svg in this last component.

# ../src/components/container/ContainerLinks.vue

<template>
  <div 
    v-if="step === 3"
    class="container-end"
  >
    <PraySvg :size="'60'" :color="'white'"/>
    <h2>Your Meditation Is Over !</h2>
    <span>Made With Love<br> ❤️ By Sith Norvang ❤️</span>
    <div class="container-network">
      <a
        class="icon-network"
        href="https://github.com/slaoprp"
        target="_blank"
      >
        <GithubSvg :size="'80'" :color="'white'" />
        <span>Github</span>
      </a>
      <a
        class="icon-network"

Everything is already now ! We need to import all components in App.vue

    <ContainerBackground />
    <Sound />
    <ContainerTimer />

import ContainerBackground from '@/components/container/ContainerBackground'
import ContainerTimer from '@/components/container/ContainerTimer'
import ContainerLinks from '@/components/container/ContainerLinks'
import Sound from '@/components/Sound'

export default {
  name: "App",
  components: {
    ContainerPopUp,
    ContainerBackground,
    ContainerTimer,
    ContainerLinks,
    Sound
  },
};
</script>

<style>
#app {
  font-family: Avenir, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
  -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
  -moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;
  text-align: center;
  color: #2c3e50;
}

body {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;

  overflow: hidden;
}

.app {

  flex-direction: column;
  justify-content: center;
  align-items: center;

There are so many other way to build this meditation application.

I hope this will help a beginner in Vue. See you in the next post of this series "Portfolio Apps".

You can try this meditation-app here :
