Closing Modals with the Back Button in a Vue SPA

Link –

Jess Archer recently gave an excellent talk at Laracon AU. In a new blogpost she explains one one tips given during her talk: how to close modals in a Vue app by using the back button.

On most web apps, pressing the back button while a modal dialog is open will navigate to the previous page, rather than closing the modal. This can be very frustrating! It might not seem like a huge deal on a desktop app, but on a mobile, where a modal like this will often be full-screen, and with phones having back buttons and back gestures, I believe it's a huge user experience improvement.
