    babel-plugin-transform-vue-jsx CircleCI

    Babel plugin for Vue 2.0 JSX


    • Assumes you are using Babel with a module bundler e.g. Webpack, because the spread merge helper is imported as a module to avoid duplication.

    • This is mutually exclusive with babel-plugin-transform-react-jsx.


    npm install\

    In your .babelrc:

      "presets": ["env"],
      "plugins": ["transform-vue-jsx"]

    The plugin transpiles the following JSX:

    <div id="foo">{this.text}</div>

    To the following JavaScript:

    h('div', {
      attrs: {
        id: 'foo'
    }, [this.text])

    Note the h function, which is a shorthand for a Vue instance's $createElement method, must be in the scope where the JSX is. Since this method is passed to component render functions as the first argument, in most cases you'd do this:

    Vue.component('jsx-example', {
      render (h) { // <-- h must be in scope
        return <div id="foo">bar</div>

    h auto-injection

    Starting with version 3.4.0 we automatically inject const h = this.$createElement in any method and getter (not functions or arrow functions) declared in ES2015 syntax that has JSX so you can drop the (h) parameter.

    Vue.component('jsx-example', {
      render () { // h will be injected
        return <div id="foo">bar</div>
      myMethod: function () { // h will not be injected
        return <div id="foo">bar</div>
      someOtherMethod: () => { // h will not be injected
        return <div id="foo">bar</div>
    class App extends Vue {
      get computed () { // h will be injected
        return <div id="foo">bar</div>

    Difference from React JSX

    First, Vue 2.0's vnode format is different from React's. The second argument to the createElement call is a "data object" that accepts nested objects. Each nested object will be then processed by corresponding modules:

    render (h) {
      return h('div', {
        // Component props
        props: {
          msg: 'hi'
        // normal HTML attributes
        attrs: {
          id: 'foo'
        // DOM props
        domProps: {
          innerHTML: 'bar'
        // Event handlers are nested under "on", though
        // modifiers such as in v-on:keyup.enter are not
        // supported. You'll have to manually check the
        // keyCode in the handler instead.
        on: {
          click: this.clickHandler
        // For components only. Allows you to listen to
        // native events, rather than events emitted from
        // the component using vm.$emit.
        nativeOn: {
          click: this.nativeClickHandler
        // class is a special module, same API as `v-bind:class`
        class: {
          foo: true,
          bar: false
        // style is also same as `v-bind:style`
        style: {
          color: 'red',
          fontSize: '14px'
        // other special top-level properties
        key: 'key',
        ref: 'ref',
        // assign the `ref` is used on elements/components with v-for
        refInFor: true,
        slot: 'slot'

    The equivalent of the above in Vue 2.0 JSX is:

    render (h) {
      return (
          // normal attributes or component props.
          // DOM properties are prefixed with `domProps`
          // event listeners are prefixed with `onor `nativeOn`
          // other special top-level properties
          class={{ foo: true, bar: false }}
          style={{ color: 'red', fontSize: '14px' }}
          // assign the `refis used on elements/components with v-for

    Component Tip

    If a custom element starts with lowercase, it will be treated as a string id and used to lookup a registered component. If it starts with uppercase, it will be treated as an identifier, which allows you to do:

    import Todo from './Todo.js'
    export default {
      render (h) {
        return <Todo/> // no need to register Todo via components option

    JSX Spread

    JSX spread is supported, and this plugin will intelligently merge nested data properties. For example:

    const data = {
      class: ['b', 'c']
    const vnode = <div class="a" {}/>

    The merged data will be:

    { class: ['a', 'b', 'c'] }

    Vue directives

    Note that almost all built-in Vue directives are not supported when using JSX, the sole exception being v-show, which can be used with the v-show={value} syntax. In most cases there are obvious programmatic equivalents, for example v-if is just a ternary expression, and v-for is just an expression, etc.

    For custom directives, you can use the v-name={value} syntax. However, note that directive arguments and modifiers are not supported using this syntax. There are two workarounds:

    1. Pass everything as an object via value, e.g. v-name={{ value, modifier: true }}

    2. Use the raw vnode directive data format:

    const directives = [
      { name: 'my-dir', value: 123, modifiers: { abc: true } }
    return <div {...{ directives }}/>
