Vuetify Algolia Places

Use Algolia Places with Vuetify.

Travis VueJS 2.x npm license


A demo is available here.


Run in your terminal:

yarn add vuetify-algolia-places

You also need to install algoliasearch and places.js:

yarn add 'algoliasearch@^3' 'places.js@^1'

Then install the plugin:

import Vue from 'vue';
import VuetifyAlgoliaPlaces from 'vuetify-algolia-places';

Vue.use(VuetifyAlgoliaPlaces, {
  algolia: {
    appId: '...', // Optional
    apiKey: '...', // Optional


Vuetify Algolia Places is still under development, so for now there is no way to specify props nor events.

<vuetify-algolia-places v-model="place" />

The variable place looks like this:

  "name": "30 Rue du Sergent Michel Berthet",
  "administrative": "Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes",
  "city": "Lyon 9e Arrondissement",
  "country": "France",
  "countryCode": "fr",
  "type": "address",
  "latlng": {
    "lat": 45.7704,
    "lng": 4.80536
  "postcode": "69009",
  "highlight": {
    "name": "<em>30</em> <em>Rue</em> <em>du</em> <em>Sergent</em> <em>Michel</em> <em>Be</em>rthet",
    "city": "Lyon 9e Arrondissement",
    "administrative": "Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes",
    "country": "France"
  "hitIndex": 0,
  "query": "30 rue du sergent michel berthet",
  "value": "30 Rue du Sergent Michel Berthet, Lyon 9e Arrondissement, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France"
Note about initial value

If you don't store this kind of object in your application, you can still pass a plain string that is equivalent to the value value, e.g.: 30 Rue du Sergent Michel Berthet, Lyon.

If this value is not null during the initialization of the component, it will automatically request Algolia API and use the first hit.

That means if place is equal to 30 Rue du Sergent Michel Berthet, Lyon, it will be automatically transformed to the above JSON object.

Custom highlighting

You can override the default behavior of highlighted search query hits via a custom function and/or slot. When using both, the returned value of your custom highlight function will become the highlight prop in the slot. Read more about Algolia Places highlight object here.

Via function

<vuetify-algolia-places :custom-highlight="someFunction" />

Via slot

Note that this slot's parent element is a <v-list-tile-content>

  <template slot="highlight" slot-scope="{ highlight }">
    <v-list-tile-title>{{ highlight }}</v-list-tile-title>
