A form generator component for VueJS, built on top of Buefy components and with Nuxt.js/SSR support

Install

• Add dependencies to your npm/yarn package manager:

npm install awesome-phonenumber buefy mdi moment nuxt-dropzone vee-validate vue-quill-editor vue-scrollto
# OR
yarn add awesome-phonenumber buefy mdi moment nuxt-dropzone vee-validate vue-quill-editor vue-scrollto

• Install the form generator:

npm install buefy-form-generator
# OR
yarn add buefy-form-generator

• Configure and use plugins in the direct parent .vue file in which you will use the <buefyFormGenerator> component:

import Vue from  'vue'

# it's better to import components a-la-carte
import Datepicker from  'buefy/src/components/datepicker/Datepicker.vue'
import Timepicker from  'buefy/src/components/timepicker/Timepicker.vue'
import Field from  'buefy/src/components/field/Field.vue'
import Select from  'buefy/src/components/select/Select.vue'
import Input from  'buefy/src/components/input/Input.vue'
import Checkbox from  'buefy/src/components/checkbox/Checkbox.vue'
import Switch from  'buefy/src/components/switch/Switch.vue'
import Message from  'buefy/src/components/message/Message.vue'
import Icon from  'buefy/src/components/icon/Icon.vue'
import Loading from  'buefy/src/components/loading/Loading.vue'

# this package already deals with all the validation through Vee-Validate
import VeeValidate,  { ErrorComponent }  from  'vee-validate'

# needed to scroll to the error
import VueScrollTo from  'vue-scrollto'

# install buefy-form-generator
Vue.component('buefyFormGenerator', require('buefy-form-generator'))

# //// OR - For Nuxt SSR support
if (process.browser) Vue.component('buefyFormGenerator', require('buefy-form-generator'))

# install components
Vue.component(Datepicker.name, Datepicker)
Vue.component(Timepicker.name, Timepicker)
Vue.component(Field.name, Field)
Vue.component(Select.name, Select)
Vue.component(Input.name, Input)
Vue.component(Checkbox.name, Checkbox)
Vue.component(Switch.name, Switch)
Vue.component(Message.name, Message)
Vue.component(Icon.name, Icon)
Vue.component(Loading.name, Loading)

# this is the VeeValidate config, you can customize it
const vvConfig =  { enableAutoClasses:  true, events:  'blur, change', errorBagName:  'vErrors'  }
Vue.use(VeeValidate, vvConfig)
Vue.component('vv-error', ErrorComponent)

# use vue-scrollto
Vue.use(VueScrollTo)

[...]

Import its css:

<style lang="css">
[...]

@import 'node_modules/buefy-form-generator/dist/bfg.css';

[...]
</style>

Insert in template:

<template>
[...]

<buefyFormGenerator
ref="form"
:schema="schema"
@changed="changed($event)"
@canceled="canceled($event)"
@validation="($event) ? save() : error()"
/>

[...]
</template>

Schema

This form generator parses a simple JSON schema to generate all what you need in a common form. Create a JSON object for each input you want to create as follows:

{
   [...]
   "inputName": { options },
   [...]
}

Configurable input options

Name Type Default Description
header {Object} undefined Adds a <h1 class="title is-5"></h1> before the input.

Supported keys:
icon: {String}
   (icon class name from MDI )
text: {String}
appearance {Object} undefined With this property, you can customize the input's look and layout.

Supported keys:
label: {String}
icon: {String}
   (icon class name from MDI )
layout: {String}
   (add here your CSS classes)
data {Object} undefined Configure the data properties, types and validation rules.

Supported keys:
value: any type
   (use this for editable values, otherwise set to null for empty forms.)
type: {String}
   (can be one of the following values: text, textarea, richtext, number, password, checkbox, switch, select, phone, date, time, dropzone, html, link)
disabled: {Boolean}
disabled: {Boolean}
noSend: {Boolean}
   (If you want to show an input excluding it from the values passed via the @changed event. Best to use it with disabled: true.)
validate: {String}
   (Insert your vee-validate validation rules. Click this link to see what is available)

╚ If (type = html)
html: {String}
   (HTML elements will always work as if noSend is set to true for them.)

╚ If (type = dropzone)
button: {String}
options: {String}

╚ If (type = select)
options: {Array}
   (Array of objects with this format: {text: "text", value: "value"})

╚ If (type = number)
step: {Float}
min: {Float}
