Slots

<sidebar-menu>
  <template v-slot:header>header</template>
  <template v-slot:footer>footer</template>
  <template v-slot:toggle-icon>toggle-icon</template>
  <template v-slot:dropdown-icon="{ isOpen }">
    <span v-if="!isOpen">+</span>
    <span v-else>-</span>
  </template>
</sidebar-menu>

Customize link

by default the component use a customized version of <router-link>, if your are using a 3rd party framework you can customize the link via the use of the link-component-name prop.

the link component must be registered globally and define item as a prop.

example with inertia.js:

import { createApp, h } from 'vue'
import link from '@inertiajs/inertia-vue3/src/link'

const customLink = {
  name: 'CustomLink',
  props: ['item'],
  render() {
    return h(link, this.$slots.default)
  },
  watch: {
    '$page.url'() {
      this.onRouteChange()
    },
  },
  inject: ['onRouteChange'],
}

const app = createApp(App)
app.component('custom-link', customLink)
<sidebar-menu :link-component-name="'custom-link'"></sidebar-menu>

Note: the onRouteChange function can be injected useful for updating the active state whenever the url change.
