Reusable component transitions


  • Brings only the code that you need. Many alternative solutions import the whole animate.css library. Vue2-transitions is minimalistic and lets you import only the transitions that you need in your app

    Each transition component has ~2kb (non-minified js+css or ~400 bytes gzipped) and you can import only the ones you really need.

  • Configurable. You can configure animation enter and leave durations as well as all the props of the native Vue transition components through props

  • Easy to use. No extra classes

Install ☕️

npm i vue2-transitions
yarn add vue2-transitions

CDN: UNPKG | jsDelivr (available as window.Vue2Transitions)

Usage 🚀

      <div class="box" v-show="show">
        <p>Fade transition</p>

import {FadeTransition} from 'vue2-transitions'

export default {
  components: {

Global usage

import Transitions from 'vue2-transitions'

List of available transitions

  • FadeTransition
  • ZoomCenterTransition
  • ZoomXTransition
  • ZoomYTransition
  • CollapseTransition
  • ScaleTransition
  • SlideXLeftTransition
  • SlideXRightTransition
  • SlideYUpTransition
  • SlideYDownTransition


props: {
   * Transition duration. Number for specifying the same duration for enter/leave transitions
   * Object style {enter: 300, leave: 300} for specifying explicit durations for enter/leave
  duration: {
    type: [Number, Object],
    default: 300
   * Whether the component should be a `transition-group` component.
  group: Boolean,
   * Transition tag, in case the component is a `transition-group`
  tag: {
    type: String,
    default: 'span'
   *  Transform origin property
   *  Can be specified with styles as well but it's shorter with this prop
  origin: {
    type: String,
    default: ''
   * Element styles that are applied during transition. These styles are applied on @beforeEnter and @beforeLeave hooks
  styles: {
    type: Object,
    default: () => {
      return {
        animationFillMode: 'both',  
        animationTimingFunction: 'ease-out'

Group transitions

Each transition can be used as a transition-group by adding the group prop to one of the desired transitions.

<fade-transition group>
   <!--keyed children here-->

Gotchas/things to watch:

  1. Elements inside group transitions should have display: inline-block or must be placed in a flex context: Vue.js docs reference
  2. Each transition has a move class move class docs. Unfortunately the duration for the move transition cannot be configured through props. By default each transition has a move class associated with .3s transition duration:
  • Zoom
       transition: transform .3s ease-out;
  • Slide
        transition: transform .3s ease-out;
  • Scale
         transition: transform .3s cubic-bezier(.25,.8,.50,1);
  • Fade
        transition: transform .3s ease-out;

If you want to configure the duration, just redefine the class for the transition you use with the desired duration.


Defining a new transition

The codebase is fairly simple and contains mostly .vue components. If you want to add a new transition to the collection follow these steps:

  1. Fork the repo.
  2. Create a new branch.
  3. Create a new .vue file (together with a folder if necessary)
  4. Define the transition.
       <component :is="componentType"
       import {baseTransition} from '../mixins/index.js'
       export default {
         name: 'transition-name-here',
         mixins: [baseTransition]
      // Your styles for animations here.
  5. Import the transition in src/index.js and place it in the export default object.
  6. Add the name of the new transition (camelCase) in the transitionOptions array inside example/App.vue

Besides the properties described above, you can pass in any other Transition props or events Note Overriding hooks (especially beforeEnter or beforeLeave) may cause unwanted effects.

@euvl (The UI for list transitions in the demo is inspired by vue-js-grid demo )

You can’t perform that action at this time.
