Ionic-Vue becomes @ionic/vue

Important: This project has been contributed to the Ionic core and can be used as @ionic/vue.

Modus Create engineers will continue to support the community at the Ionic's official Issue board

However, this repository is still being actively maintained and kept in-sync with the official @ionic/vue. The main difference being the availability of IonicVueRouter and flexibility of choosing dependency versions.

Our goal is to allow developers to be on the bleeding-edge and freely experiment, thus we are delivering features and bug fixes as fast as possible. Apart from the router you can switch between the libraries without any changes to your code-base.

Bug fixes, features, documentation and any other changes will be contributed back as well.

Ionic integration adapters for Vue.



Overview: all of the controllers and major features such as transitions and router have been implemented and tested for several months now. Apart from minor improvements and further testing of various mixes of Ionic components and implementations this library is considered feature complete.

Feature Status @ionic/vue Notes
Router ✔️ ✔️ Awaiting release
Router View ✔️ ✔️ Awaiting release
Tabs ✔️ ✔️ Awaiting release
Controllers ✔️ ✔️ Fully implemented
TypeScript ✔️ ✔️ Fully implemented
Unit tests Outdated as were originally written in plain JS, need to be updated for TS

Installing / Getting started

A quick introduction of the minimal setup you need to get a hello world up & running.

npm install @modus/ionic-vue

Now you can use it during the initialization step of your Vue app.

import Vue from 'vue'
import Ionic, { IonicVueRouter } from '@modus/ionic-vue'
import Home from './Home.vue'
new Vue({
  router: new IonicVueRouter({
    routes: [
      { path: '/', component: Home },
      { path: '/page', component: () => import('./Page.vue') }

Ionic requires a root element of ion-app in your HTML.

IonicVueRouter requires ion-vue-router element in order to render Ionic transitions. Otherwise you can use the official VueRouter

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
      <ion-vue-router />


IonicVue abstracts DOM interaction of Ionic UI components inside a Vue application and can be used via this.$ionic.

Vue.component('Foo', {
  methods: {
    notify() {
          header: 'Notification',
          subHeader: null,
          message: 'Hello World',
          buttons: ['Bye'],
        .then(a => a.present())

IonicVue supports all of the Ionic controllers:


IonicVueRouter binds Ionic transitions and routing functionalities with Vue Router.

It is an extension of the official Vue Router thus it can be used as a drop-in replacement with all of the methods, hooks, etc. working as expected.


Setting up Dev

Simply clone the repo and install dependencies to get started with development.

git clone
cd ionic-vue/
npm install

Testing will require peer dependencies to be installed. Peer dependencies are:

  • vue
  • vue-template-compiler
  • vue-router
  • @ionic/core

You can install peer dependencies without modifying package.json.

npm run install.peer

We recommend trying out your ionic-vue changes in an actual app. You can do that with npm link:

cd ionic-vue/
npm link
cd ../sample-app/
npm link @modus/ionic-vue

Beep is a fantastic sample application you can use to test ionic-vue.


Rollup automatically creates distribution packages.

For development build run:

npm run dev

For automatic rebuild on changes run:

npm run watch

For production build run:

npm run prod


Make sure you have installed peer dependencies (explained above) before running tests.

npm test
