A straightforward Vue component to filter, sort and paginate data.

Latest Version on NPM Less than 6.5kb Software License Build Status npm

Work in progress!

vue-data-component is a renderless component to build data-driven interfaces. Especially interfaces that contain filterable, sortable, or paginated data. We wanted to build something that takes care of pesky little problems like loading indicators, debouncing, or mapping your interface's filters to an AJAX request.

A brief overview of what vue-data-component has to offer:

  • Filter, sort, and paginate data via AJAX or from any other data source
  • Sync the component state with the current URL's query string
  • Debounce asynchronous requests
  • Handle loading indicators. No unnecessary flashes, only display them if the request is taking too long
  • Pass initial data for the component's first render when fetching data asynchronously, avoids layout jumps on first render when the data isn't loaded yet
  • Renderless: build your own interface, we don't make any assumptions
  • Additional helper components for sorting, pagination, and facet filters

On their own, none of these features are super impressive, but together they enable you to build better interfaces in a uniform approach.

vue-data-component expects the following browser API's to be available. If you expect wider browser support, you'll need to add a polyfill.


The main component exposed by this package is the

Prop Type Default Description
source* Function (required) This function will be called to fetch data. It receives an object parameter: { query, queryString }. The function should return a response object. The response object mayb be wrapped in a promise.
query Object {} A query object. A deep watcher will be registered on the query object to determine when new data should be fetched.
initial Object or null null An initial response object so the component can render as soon as possible.
debounceMs Number 0 Data wont be subsequently fetched until the debounce time has passed.
slowRequestMs Number 0 Requests that take longer than slowRequestMs will be considered slow. See Handling slow requests.
useQueryString Boolean false When true, the browser's query string will be updated based on the current query. See Query strings. This prop is currently not supported with SSR.
queryStringDefaults Object or null null The default values for the query string. When these values match the current query values, they will be omitted from the query string. For example, you generally don't want page=1 in your URL's, since it has the same effect as no page parameter.
