# Installation

The preferred way to use Vue Formulate is to install via your favorite JavaScript package manager.

# NPM

npm install @braid/vue-formulate

# Yarn

yarn add @braid/vue-formulate

# Direct download

Alternatively, if your project doesn't have a build process, you can download the repository and manually link to the minified version:

<script src="/vue-formulate/dist/formulate.min.js"></script>

Note

Due to DOM limitations, when mounting Vue Formulate in DOM templates (outside of single-file components) all the component names will need to be lower-cased, hyphen separated and with a closing tag.

<FormulateInput /><formulate-input></formulate-input>

# CDN

Similar to a direct download, you can load Vue Formulate directly off of a CDN like JSDeliver.

# Add to Vue

Once Vue Formulate has been downloaded you need to install it with Vue.

import Vue from 'vue'
import VueFormulate from '@braid/vue-formulate'

Vue.use(VueFormulate)

TIP

When loading Vue Formulate as a commonJS module (think require()) it may be necessary to use VueFormulate.default when registering with Vue:

const VueFormulate = require('@braid/vue-formulate')
Vue.use(VueFormulate.default)

# Nuxt

It's easy to use Vue Formulate on Nuxt too. A working example is available.

# plugins/vue-formulate.js

import Vue from 'vue'
import VueFormulate from '@braid/vue-formulate'

Vue.use(VueFormulate)

# nuxt.config.js

export default {
  plugins: [
     '~/plugins/vue-formulate',
  ]
  (...)

# Configuration options

If you need custom configuration options, you can pass a second argument with an object of configuration options.

Vue.use(VueFormulate, options)

# Styling/theming

If you’d like to use the default theme (the one used in these docs), you can easily include that css on your page. Vue Formulate is also extremely easy to theme on your own.

# IE11 support

While Internet Explorer 11 is supported polyfills for ES2015 language features are not included in Vue Formulate. For those who do require IE11 support we recommend using polyfill.io or similar service to shim ES2015 features.

<script src="https://polyfill.io/v3/polyfill.min.js?features=es2015"></script>
