Download and Setup

Installing Vui Required Files

If you are looking to quickly add Vui into your project, use the following CSS & JS.


<!-- Required for Vui -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" integrity="sha384-WskhaSGFgHYWDcbwN70/dfYBj47jz9qbsMId/iRN3ewGhXQFZCSftd1LZCfmhktB" crossorigin="anonymous">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="" />

<!-- Required for COMPONENT: CodePanel -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="">


Several of the Vui components require the use of JavaScript helper libraries to function. Place the following <script>s near the end of your pages, right before the closing <body> tag.

<!-- Required for COMPONENT: CodePanel -->
<script src="">
<script src="">

<!-- Required for UTILITY: Draggable -->
<script src="">
<script src="">

Webpack's eslinter prevented the closing </script> tags from rendering in the code panel. Make sure if you copy the code above that you add the closing tags.

Adding Vui to Your Project

After you unzip the file, place it in the root of your projects src directory.

Vui to Your Project

Vui to Your Project

  • components: contains all of Vui's main components.
  • directives: contains all of Vui's utility directives.
  • images: misc graphics required for components.
  • widgets: are items that combine several components. i.e. Login Panel
  • vui_filters.js: custom utility filters.
  • vui.css: various global component styles.
  • vui.js: the main module that imports and registers everything in a central location.

Registering Vui with Your Project

In order for Vui to work with your project, you have to import vui.js in your main.js file. This will globally register all of Vui's components, so they are all accessible from anywhere in your project without the need to import them into your vue files.

That's it!
