Vuejs 2

Posted on  by admin

The following guide describes how to integrate Tiptap with your Vue CLI project.

AMD Module Loaders

Node installed on your machine. Vue CLI installed on your machine. Experience with Vue. If you already have an existing Vue project, that’s fine too.


  • Just skip this step and proceed with the next step.

  • For the sake of this guide, let’s start with a fresh Vue project called my-tiptap-project.

  • The Vue CLI sets up everything we need, just select the default Vue 2 template.

    Okay, enough of the boring boilerplate work.

Conditionals and Loops

  • Let’s finally install Tiptap! For the following example you’ll need the @tiptap/vue-2 package, with a few components, and @tiptap/starter-kit which has the most common extensions to get started quickly.

  • If you followed step 1 and 2, you can now start your project with npm run dev, and open http://localhost:8080 in your favorite browser.

  • This might be different, if you’re working with an existing project.

    To actually start using Tiptap, you’ll need to add a new component to your app.

    Let’s call it Tiptap and put the following example code in components/Tiptap.vue. This is the fastest way to get Tiptap up and running with Vue. It will give you a very basic version of Tiptap, without any buttons.

  • No worries, you will be able to add more functionality soon.

Explanation of Different Builds

  • Now, let’s replace the content of src/App.vue with the following example code to use our new Tiptap component in our app.

  • You should now see Tiptap in your browser. Time to give yourself a pat on the back!

  • You’re probably used to bind your data with v-model in forms, that’s also possible with Tiptap.

    Here is a working example component, that you can integrate in your project:. You’re browsing the documentation for v2.x and earlier. For v3.x, click here. Vue (pronounced /vjuː/, like view) is a progressive framework for building user interfaces.

#4. Add it to your app

  • Unlike other monolithic frameworks, Vue is designed from the ground up to be incrementally adoptable.

  • The core library is focused on the view layer only, and is easy to pick up and integrate with other libraries or existing projects.

  • On the other hand, Vue is also perfectly capable of powering sophisticated Single-Page Applications when used in combination with modern tooling and supporting libraries.

    If you’d like to learn more about Vue before diving in, we created a video walking through the core principles and a sample project.

    If you are an experienced frontend developer and want to know how Vue compares to other libraries/frameworks, check out the Comparison with Other Frameworks. The official guide assumes intermediate level knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

    If you are totally new to frontend development, it might not be the best idea to jump right into a framework as your first step - grasp the basics then come back!

    Prior experience with other frameworks helps, but is not required. The easiest way to try out Vue.js is using the Hello World example. Feel free to open it in another tab and follow along as we go through some basic examples.

    Or, you can create an index.html file and include Vue with:. The Installation page provides more options of installing Vue.

Vue Devtools

Note: We do not recommend that beginners start with vue-cli, especially if you are not yet familiar with Node.js-based build tools.

  • If you prefer something more interactive, you can also check out this tutorial series on Scrimba, which gives you a mix of screencast and code playground that you can pause and play around with anytime.

  • At the core of Vue.js is a system that enables us to declaratively render data to the DOM using straightforward template syntax:.

  • We have already created our very first Vue app!

    This looks pretty similar to rendering a string template, but Vue has done a lot of work under the hood.

Ready for More?

  • The data and the DOM are now linked, and everything is now reactive.

  • How do we know? Open your browser’s JavaScript console (right now, on this page) and set app.message to a different value.

  • You should see the rendered example above update accordingly.

    Note that we no longer have to interact with the HTML directly. A Vue app attaches itself to a single DOM element (#app in our case) then fully controls it. The HTML is our entry point, but everything else happens within the newly created Vue instance.

Dev Build

  • In addition to text interpolation, we can also bind element attributes like this:.

  • Hover your mouse over me for a few seconds to see my dynamically bound title!

  • Here we are encountering something new.

    The v-bind attribute you are seeing is called a directive.

Declarative Rendering

Directives are prefixed with v- to indicate that they are special attributes provided by Vue, and as you may have guessed, they apply special reactive behavior to the rendered DOM.

  • Here, it is basically saying “keep this element’s title attribute up-to-date with the message property on the Vue instance.”.

  • If you open up your JavaScript console again and enter app2.message = 'some new message', you’ll once again see that the bound HTML - in this case the title attribute - has been updated.

  • It’s easy to toggle the presence of an element, too:.

    Go ahead and enter app3.seen = false in the console. You should see the message disappear. This example demonstrates that we can bind data to not only text and attributes, but also the structure of the DOM.


Moreover, Vue also provides a powerful transition effect system that can automatically apply transition effects when elements are inserted/updated/removed by Vue.

  • There are quite a few other directives, each with its own special functionality.

  • For example, the v-for directive can be used for displaying a list of items using the data from an Array:.

  • In the console, enter app4.todos.push({ text: 'New item' }).

    You should see a new item appended to the list. To let users interact with your app, we can use the v-on directive to attach event listeners that invoke methods on our Vue instances:.
