I no longer have the ability or interest in maintaining this package since I am not using Vue in any of my projects anymore, so I am abandoning vue-context. If your project depends on vue-context, please feel free to fork and maintain the package yourself, or use an alternative context menu package.

vue-context provides a simple yet flexible context menu for Vue. It is styled for the standard <ul> tag, but any menu template can be used. The menu is lightweight with its only dependency being vue-clickaway. The menu has some basic styles applied to it, but they can be easily overridden by your own styles.

The menu disappears when you expect by utilizing vue-clickaway and it also optionally disappears when clicked on.


Getting Started

The following instructions will help you get the vue-context menu up and running on your project.


Using npm:

npm i vue-context

Basic Usage

Import the component and use it in your app.

import Vue from 'vue';
import VueContext from 'vue-context';

new Vue({
    components: {
    methods: {
        onClick (text) {
            alert(`You clicked ${text}!`);

Next add an element to the page that will trigger the context menu to appear, and also add the context menu to the page.

<div id="app">

        <p @contextmenu.prevent="$">
            Right click on me
    <vue-context ref="menu">
            <a href="#" @click.prevent="onClick($">Option 1</a>
            <a href="#" @click.prevent="onClick($">Option 2</a>

Notice: As of version 4.1.0, the menu styles are not automatically included by default anymore. You will need to manually import them now in your own stylesheets.

@import '~vue-context/dist/css/vue-context.css';

// Or
@import '~vue-context/src/sass/vue-context';
