Create a new Vue.js Project with Vue CLI

Assuming that node and the Vue CLI is installed. Open the working directory in a terminal and enter:

vue ui

This will open a new browser session and load the Vue Portal.

Build & Run a project

From the command line type:

npm run serve

This will output something similar to:

 DONE  Compiled successfully in 5427ms                                                                                                                        16:06:27
