Getting started

Install the package

To install this package, simply install vuejs-datatable with your favorite package manager:

# Using npm 
npm install vuejs-datatable
# Using yarn 
yarn add vuejs-datatable

Import the package

Use the ESM build

The ESM build (EcmaScript Module) implies that your target browsers supports ESM OR you use a bundler, like webpack, rollup.js or Parcel.

Import & register the DatatableFactory in Vue:

import Vue from 'vue';
import { VuejsDatatableFactory } from 'vuejs-datatable';
Vue.use( VuejsDatatableFactory );

Check out how to customize table types to see some usage of the DatatableFactory and the possible reasons not to use the default instance exported as VuejsDatatableFactory.

Use the IIFE build

The IIFE build (Immediately Invoked Function Expression) should be prefered only for small applications without bundlers, or if you privilegiate the use of a CDN.

In your HTML, load the IIFE build directly, if possible right before the closing </body> tag. You must make sure that the loading order is preserved, like below.

    <!-- All your page content... -->
    <script src="" defer></script> 
    <script src="/dist/vuejs-datatable.js" defer></script> 
    <script src="/myscript.js" defer></script> 

The IIFE build exposes the DatatableFactory as the global VuejsDatatable. Check out how to customize table types to see some usage of the DatatableFactory.

Use the component

Use the component in your HTML or template:

<div id="vue-root">
    <datatable :columns="columns" :data="rows"></datatable>

Then pass in the columns and the data to your Vue instance:

new Vue({
    el: '#vue-root',
    data: {
        columns: [
            {label: 'id', field: 'id'},
            {label: 'Username', field: 'user.username', headerClass: 'class-in-header second-class'},
            {label: 'First Name', field: 'user.firstName'},
            {label: 'Last Name', field: 'user.lastName'},
            {label: 'Email', field: ''},
            {label: 'Address', representedAs: ({address, city, state}) => `${address}<br />${city}${state}`, interpolate: true}
        rows: [
                id: 1,
                user: {
                    username: "dprice0",
                    firstName: "Daniel",
                    lastName: "Price",
                    email: ""
                address: "3 Toban Park",
                city: "Pocatello",
                state: "Idaho"

Customize the datatable

The DatatableFactory exposes several methods to allow you to add or modify other datatable-like components, with custom styles or behavior.

    .registerTableType( 'my-awesome-table', tableType => {
            .mergeSettings( /* ... */ )
            .setFilterHandler( /* ... */ )
            .setSortHandler( /* ... */ );
    } );

  • staging: Changes considered as stable and planned for next release.
  • master: Releases, stable versions.

You may use other branches (for features, hotfixes, etc etc). Check out the list of branches.

cd vuejs-datatable
# Install dependencies 
npm install
# Run tests
