    Simple cookie banner

    If you need a simple way to add customizeable cookie banner which is GDPR friendly, then use this plugin. There is a lot of different tools which can generate it into your site by adding a <script>, but this will add thirdparty scripts into your site, and can therefor be hard to customize and listen to.

    Here is an example of how it looks like out of the box: Cookie banner example

    And here is the cookie corner which will be visible when the user has saved the settings they need. Cookie banner saved example


    Run the code below into the root of the project:

    npm install simple-cookie-banner
    // or
    yarn add simple-cookie-banner

    When its installed then add it to a index.js or main.js file, so its executed when loading the app: main.js

    import CookieSettings from "simple-cookie-banner";
    const cookieSettings = CookieSettings({
        // Insert settings here

    If you want some default css, then add the following @import into your css file:

    @import "~simple-cookie-banner/cookie-settings.css";

    Then build the script with npm run dev or yarn dev or what ever you use, and then you should see the cookie banner.

    Cookie settings change

    If you want to change the settings yourself, then you can change it by using the object functions returned when initiating the CookieSettings() method. It will return the following functions:

        // Open the cookie banner
        open: function(){},
        // Close the cookie banner
        close: function(){},
        // Get the current settings (false: not chosen yet, 1: if basic then accepted, 0: if basic then declined, array: if simple then array of the selected options)
        getSettings: function(){},
        // Save settings by selected point keys in array.
        saveSettings: function (selectedPointKeys = []),
        // Save setting by key and isChecked value.
        saveSetting: function(pointKey, isChecked = false)

    You can use the cookieSettings.saveSettings(selectedPointKeys) function to update all the user cookie settings. You can also update only 1 setting with the cookieSettings.saveSetting(pointKey, isChecked = false).

    Cookie buttons

    Here is an example of how you can use the buttons array:

        {type: 'decline', label: 'No thanks'},
        {type: 'submit', label: 'Ok'},

    Here is the types of buttons:

    • decline will decline all the points.
    • submit will accept only the selected points.
    • accept-all will accept all points
    • custom will need a new parameter onClick which is the function it will execute on click.
