UI5 Web Components Vue Sample Application

Vue sample application to demonstrate the usage of the UI5 Web Components. It shows how to bind properties, to subscribe to events, using nested components and the bootstrapped Vue build.

This project was bootstrapped with Vue CLI


  • Node.js (version 8.5 or higher ⚠️)

Getting started

  1. Clone this repository using the GitHub Command line tool and navigate into the downloaded directory.

    git clone
    cd ui5-webcomponents-sample-vue
  2. Install all dependencies

    npm install
  3. Start a local server and run the application. (The running application can be found here: http://localhost:8080)

    npm run serve


Consume UI5 Web Components

Import the desired component(s) in your app to define the UI5 Web Component.

For example, to use ui5-button you need to import it:

import "@ui5/webcomponents/dist/Button"; // loads ui5-button

Then, you can use the custom element in an HTML page:

<ui5-button>Hello world!</ui5-button>

Browser support

Currently only Chrome, Safari and Firefox support Web Components natively.

If your application should run on browsers without native Web Components support (Edge and/or IE11), import one the following modules before your first Web Component import:

Edge only

import "@ui5/webcomponents-base/src/browsersupport/Edge";

Edge and IE11

import "@ui5/webcomponents-base/src/browsersupport/IE11";

Note: Importing the module for IE11 support automatically enables Edge support as well, so there is no need to import them both explicitly.


import "@ui5/webcomponents-base/src/browsersupport/IE11"; // This will enable Edge and IE11 support for all Web Components below
import "@ui5/webcomponents/dist/Button"; // loads ui5-button
import "@ui5/webcomponents/dist/Label"; // loads ui5-label

Configure Vue to work with Web Components defined outside of it

To use Web Components in Vue Application a configuration option should be provided in the main.js file to tell the Vue about these components. More can be found in the documentation of Vue.config.ignoredElements:


Vue.config.ignoredElements = [/^ui5-/];

Configure Vue Build

When UI5 Web Components are used they include all of their translation files and CLDR data files in the application bundle. In order to decrease the bundle size of the application a custom Webpack configuration should be provided.

Create vue.config.js file:


module.exports = {
  configureWebpack: {
    module: {
      rules: [
          test: [/cldr\/.*\.json$/, /i18n\/.*\.json$/],
          loader: 'file-loader',
          options: {
            name: 'static/media/[name].[hash:8].[ext]',
          type: 'javascript/auto'
