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


    • fully accessible;
    • ⌨️ keyboard navigation (Page Up/Down, Home, End, Esc);
    • 🔣 type-ahead to select option that starts with typed symbols;
    • 💅 style agnostic, so you can style it whatever you like (but including core.scss is highly encouraged).

    💿 Installation

    📦 Via NPM

    $ npm install vue-accessible-select --save

    🧶 Via Yarn

    $ yarn add vue-accessible-select


    As a plugin

    It must be called before new Vue().

    import Vue from 'vue'
    import VueAccessibleSelect from 'vue-accessible-select'

    As a global component

    import Vue from 'vue'
    import { VueAccessibleSelect } from 'vue-accessible-select'
    Vue.component('VueAccessibleSelect', VueAccessibleSelect)

    As a local component

    import { VueAccessibleSelect } from 'vue-accessible-select'
    export default {
      name: 'YourAwesomeComponent',
      components: {

    ℹ️ Note to set global options (for example transition for each select component), you should do the following:

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

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

    Default config.js:

    export default {
      transition: null,

    🚀 Usage


        :transition="{ name: 'foo' }"


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

    🎨 Styles

    Then don't forget to include core styles. Also library is sipped with default theme styles you can use.


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

    Or already compiled CSS:

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

    ⚠️ Note that 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.

    When importing core.scss, there are SASS variables you can override during build process:

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