return {

name: '',

description: '',

output: ''

};

},

methods: {

formSubmit(e) {

e.preventDefault();

let currentObj = this;

this.axios.post('http://localhost:8000/yourPostApi', {

name: this.name,

description: this.description

})

.then(function (response) {

currentObj.output = response.data;
