    A Netflix clone built with @appwrite + @vuejs + @nuxt

    It would be impossible to write every piece of code in this article 😬 You will read about all essential concepts, components, and communication with Appwrite. Still, if you want to check out every corner of our Almost Netflix web application, you can check out the GitHub Source Code that holds the whole application.

  • TypeScript

    TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript that compiles to clean JavaScript output.

    Since we are using TypeScript, let's also add definitions, so we can use them later to describe what data we are getting from Appwrite:

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • Vue.js

    🖖 Vue.js is a progressive, incrementally-adoptable JavaScript framework for building UI on the web.

    To build Almost Netflix, we will use Vue.js because of its decent simplicity and forced structure. I believe reading Vue components is straightforward, and any web developer can understand what the code is trying to achieve.

  • Tailwind CSS

    A utility-first CSS framework for rapid UI development.

    Last but not least, we will use Tailwind CSS to style the components. Tailwind CSS makes it a bit harder to read HTML code but allows speedy prototyping, allowing us to recreate the Netflix UI in a blink of an eye.

  • Nuxt.js

    The Intuitive Vue(2) Framework

    To manage routing, importing, and folder structure, we will stick to NuxtJS, an intuitive Vue framework.
