Give this repo a ⭐ (star) if you actually like this and will use it for your development :D! Thank you!

The library is still in development, so if you meet any bugs or issues, feel free to open!

Technologies/Libraries using

  • Javascript
  • VueJS 2.x
  • Webpack
  • JQuery
  • Bootstrap 4
  • ...

Note: From the version 1.2.0 to above, I don't import bootstrap 4 stylesheet into the bundle, you should include your own bootstrap 4 stylesheet in order to get both of GUI & Template working normally.

Form Builder Structure

  • Template: is where you can config/create/edit your own form. template_config

  • GUI: is where the form will be built by your configuration. gui_config

For more information please visit this Repo's wiki, thanks :D!

How to install?

Run this command to install:

npm i v-form-builder --save



  • For the best experience, please install the latest version!
  • Please don't install the old version below v1.1.1. Thank you!

How to implement?

Import into your project

1/ Import as global component

import FormBuilder from 'v-form-builder';
Vue.component('FormBuilder', FormBuilder);

2/ Import as single component

import FormBuilder from 'v-form-builder';
export default {
    components: {FormBuilder}

Note: you should have your own Bootstrap 4 stylesheet imported inside your project in order to use the Form Builder normally.


        // form builder template
        <form-builder type="template"></form-builder>
        // form builder gui
        <form-builder type="gui" :form="yourConfigFormObject"></form-builder>

Binding options:

  • type (String):
    • Form Config (Template): template
    • Form GUI: gui
  • form (Object) - for Form GUI Only, where you passing the configuration data and the Form Builder will build the form by your configuration data.

V-Model for Form Builder Template

You can use v-model in Form Builder Template, it'll return to you the form configuration data that you're configurated (object) and also render the old configuration and let you edit/update that configuration.

        <form-builder type="template" v-model="formData"></form-builder>

The form config data would look like this:

    sections: [...],
    layout: "...",
    _uniqueId: "..."

Ideally, you need to convert that Object to JSON string and then save it in your database :D

V-Model for Form Builder GUI

You can use V-Model to get/set values from your built form.

        <form-builder type="gui" :form="formData" v-model="formValues"></form-builder>

The form values data would look like this:

    section_key: {
        control_name_1: "data",
        control_name_2: 123,
