Vue.js run a code in mounted and again for restart functionality

I am creating a game in VueJS, where, when the page loads, I want a method to fire, make an ajax call to an external API and create a bunch of data properties. When the player wins the round, I want to them to be able to see a button that allows them to restart the game. I am using a mounted() hook to fire the method on page load.

My question is I am not sure how to implement the restart functionality if the game setup and API call are within the mounted() function. Is there a way to run the mounted() function again?



Abstract your initialization into a method, and call the method from mounted and wherever else you want.

new Vue({
      //call API
      //Setup game

Then possibly have a button in your template to start over.

<button v-if="playerWon" @click="init">Play Again</button>

In this button, playerWon represents a boolean value in your data that you would set when the player wins the game so the button appears. You would set it back to false in init.
