    Vue.js accessible multiselect component made according to WAI-ARIA practices.

    Table of contents


    • ♿️ fully accessible to screen readers;
    • ⌨️ supports keyboard navigation (there really a lot of keyboard shortcuts);
    • 🔣 type-ahead to focus option that starts with typed symbols;
    • 💅 style agnostic, so you can style it whatever you like (but including core.scss is highly encouraged).


    Edit vue-accessible-multiselect


    Via NPM

    $ npm install vue-accessible-multiselect --save

    Via Yarn

    $ yarn add vue-accessible-multiselect


    As a plugin

    It must be called before new Vue().

    import Vue from 'vue'
    import VueAccessibleMultiselect from 'vue-accessible-multiselect'

    As a global component

    import Vue from 'vue'
    import { VueAccessibleMultiselect } from 'vue-accessible-multiselect'
    Vue.component('VueAccessibleMultiselect', VueAccessibleMultiselect)

    As a local component

    import { VueAccessibleMultiselect } from 'vue-accessible-multiselect'
    export default {
      name: 'YourAwesomeComponent',
      components: {

    ℹ️ Note! To set global options (for example transition for each multiselect component), you should do the following:

    import { config } from 'vue-accessible-multiselect'
    config.transition = {
      name: 'foo',

    ⚠️ Note! Options passed locally via props will always take precedence over global config options.

    Default config.js:

    export default {
      transition: null,



        :transition="{ name: 'foo' }"


    export default {
      // ...
      data() {
        return {
          value: [],
          options: [
              value: 0,
              label: '🍇 Grape',
              value: { foo: 'bar' },
              label: '🍉 Watermelon',
              value: [1, 2, 3],
              label: '🥝 Kiwi',
              value: false,
              label: '🥭 Mango',
              value: true,
              label: '🍓 Strawberry',
              value: 'lemon',
              label: '🍋 Lemon',
      // ...


    After that don't forget to include core styles. Note that library is sipped with default theme styles you can use.


    // recommended 
    @import 'vue-accessible-multiselect/src/styles/core.scss';
    // optional 
    @import 'vue-accessible-multiselect/src/styles/themes/default.scss';

    Or already compiled CSS:

    /* recommended */
    @import 'vue-accessible-multiselect/dist/styles/core.scss';
    /* optional */
    @import 'vue-accessible-multiselect/dist/styles/themes/default.scss';

    ⚠️ Note! When you import already compiled CSS you don't have ability to override SASS variables during build process, so it is preferable to use .scss file.

    core.scss, contains some SASS variables you can override during build process:

    $v-multiselect-menu-position-top: 100% !default;
    $v-multiselect-arrow-size: 8px !default;

    /themes/default.scss SASS variables are listed here.
