vue-autoNumeric wraps the awesome AutoNumeric library and generate an <input> element managed by AutoNumeric.

Checkout the demo!

Alternatively you can check the examples directly in your browser to see how to integrate the component with Vue and AutoNumeric.


yarn add vue-autonumeric
# or 
npm install vue-autonumeric --save

Note: In order to minimize the size of the vue-autoNumeric component, the AutoNumeric library dependency is not bundled with it.

This means you need to link the AutoNumeric library with either ways: your html <head> tag directly

<!-- locally... -->
<script src="../node_modules/autonumeric/dist/autonumeric.min.js"></script>
<!-- ...or by using a CDN -->
<script src=""></script>

Then you need to tell Webpack to treat the AutoNumeric dependency as external so that it does not try to bundle it.
Here is a really simple webpack.config.js example that does that:

module.exports = {
    entry  : './src/vueAutonumericTest.js',
    output : {
        filename: './dist/bundle.js'
    externals: {
        autonumeric: 'AutoNumeric',

...or by importing it directly as an ES6 module

You can choose to directly import the AutoNumeric library in your source code.
First, install the autonumeric dependency so that Webpack can find it using:

yarn add autonumeric
# or 
npm install autonumeric --save

You will as usual be able to use the vue-autonumeric component in your Vue components using:

import VueAutonumeric from '../src/components/VueAutonumeric.vue';
export default {
    name      : 'myComponent',
    components: {

However, when doing that if you want to be able to bundle all the scripts together with Webpack, you'll need to define an alias for the AutoNumeric library in your Webpack config, otherwise Webpack will complain about the npm package autonumeric case.

The alias that you need to declare in your Webpack configuration:

module.exports = {
    entry  : './src/vueAutonumericTest.js',
    output : {
        filename: './dist/bundle.js'
    resolve: {
        alias: {
            AutoNumeric: 'node_modules/autonumeric/dist/autoNumeric.min',

How to use?

The AutoNumeric component can be instantiated the same way AutoNumeric can.

With an option object:

         digitGroupSeparator: '.',
         decimalCharacter: ',',
         decimalCharacterAlternative: '.',
         currencySymbol: '\u00a0€',
         currencySymbolPlacement: 's',
         roundingMethod: 'U',
         minimumValue: '0'

With a predefined option name:


With multiple option objects/predefined options:

    :options="['euro', { minimumValue: '0' }]"

Other props


You can define the input placeholder using:

    :placeholder="'Enter your value here'"

You can also specify the type of html tag (within the AutoNumeric supported list) this component should generate using the tag prop. By default, an <input> element is generated, but if you want a <div> element, you can use:


Note: this will automatically set the contenteditable attribute to true for that generated element.

Integration with other scripts & events support

This wrapper supports setting the AutoNumeric options via an :options prop.
It also supports external value changes (via aNElement.set(42) for instance) and update the formatting and the v-model accordingly.

The paste, drop and wheel events are supported as well.

Moreover, if you modify the :options prop, the AutoNumeric settings will be automatically updated with the new options.


Please note that directly setting a :value='42' on the <vue-autonumeric> component will break it (really!).
Do NOT do that:

    :options="{ minimumValue: '0' }"
    :value="42042.69" <!-- This fails -->


The official AutoNumeric documentation is using this component extensively :)

An editable live example is available on Codepen.


You can also check the shipped examples in your browser, and study their source here.
To do so, first compile the example using:

# this will build the component *and* the examples 
yarn build 

Then check the resulting html file in your browser using:

firefox ./examples/index.html # or `chrome` 


Browser support

This supports the same browsers than AutoNumeric supports:

  • Firefox and
  • Chrome

(latest 2 versions)

If you use IE/Edge/Safari/Opera, this might work ;)


Whenever you change the source code, you can check how it affects the default examples by first building those in examples/index.html with:

yarn build:examples

The contribution guidelines for vue-autoNumeric are the same than for the parent AutoNumeric project.


As always, if you find this useful, please consider supporting its development!
