vue-fuse npm package

A Vue.js pluggin for fuzzy search library, Fuse.js There are two ways to use this plugin. The vue-fuse component, or the $search method. Be sure to take a look at the documentation for both below.


npm install vue-fuse
yarn add vue-fuse

In main.js

import VueFuse from 'vue-fuse'


Full Fuse.js Documentation

This is just a simple drop in component leverage Fuse.js. For complete documentation, check out http://fusejs.io/

$search Method

The $search instance method allows you to execute a search programmatically within your application. Calling the this.$search function will return a promise, that is fulfilled once Fuse.js returns completes the search. $search takes the following params:

  • term - (required) the search term or query that you will search by
  • list - (required) an array of items to search
  • options - (required) an object with fuse.js options. At minimum, you must provide an array of keys. Other options will default to the fuse.js defaults (see here: http://fusejs.io/)

$search example

this.$search(this.term, this.bikes, this.options).then(results => {
  this.searchResults = results

vue-fuse Component

The vue-fuse component can be added any of your existing Vue components. It creates an input html element, and takes props (listed below) to execute a search. Search results are then returned via events.

Compoment Props

Most of the props line up with Fuse.js options with the defaults set to match the defaut Fuse.js behavior.

Property Desc Type Default values
placeholder placeholder text for the input String ""
eventName give a name to the event emitted when the search results are updated String fuseResultsUpdated
inputChangeEventName give a name to the event emitted when the text in the input field is changed. This event payload contains the string of text in the input field String fuseInputChanged
defaultAll If true, results will inclide ALL items in list when search is null. If false, results will inclide no items when search is null. Boolean true
list The array of items that Fuse will search Array
caseSensitive Indicates whether comparisons should be case sensitive. Boolean false
includeScore Whether the score should be included in the result set. A score of 0 indicates a perfect match, while a score of 1 indicates a complete mismatch. Boolean false
includeMatches Whether the matches should be included in the result set. When true, each record in the result set will include the indices of the matched characters: indices: [start, end]. These can consequently be used for highlighting purposes. Boolean false
minMatchCharLength When set to include matches, only the matches whose length exceeds this value will be returned. (For instance, if you want to ignore single character index returns, set to 2) Number 1
shouldSort Whether to sort the result list, by score. Boolean true
tokenize When true, the algorithm will search individual words and the full string, computing the final score as a function of both. In this case, the threshold, distance, and location are inconsequential for individual tokens, and are thus ignored. Boolean false
matchAllTokens When true, the result set will only include records that match all tokens. Will only work if tokenize is also true. Boolean false
findAllMatches When true, the matching function will continue to the end of a search pattern even if a perfect match has already been located in the string. Boolean false
id The name of the identifier property. If specified, the returned result will be a list of the items' identifiers, otherwise it will be a list of the items. String ''
keys List of properties that will be searched. This supports nested properties, weighted search, searching in arrays of strings and objects Array
location Determines approximately where in the text is the pattern expected to be found. Number 0
threshold At what point does the match algorithm give up. A threshold of 0.0 requires a perfect match (of both letters and location), a threshold of 1.0 would match anything. Number 0.6
distance Determines how close the match must be to the fuzzy location (specified by location). An exact letter match which is distance characters away from the fuzzy location would score as a complete mismatch. A distance of 0 requires the match be at the exact location specified, a distance of 1000 would require a perfect match to be within 800 characters of the location to be found using a threshold of 0.8. Number 100
maxPatternLength The maximum length of the pattern. The longer the pattern (i.e. the search query), the more intensive the search operation will be. Whenever the pattern exceeds the maxPatternLength, an error will be thrown. Number 32

Component Demo / Example

  <vue-fuse :keys="keys" :list="bikes" :defaultAll="false" :eventName="bikesChanged"></vue-fuse>
export default {
  data () {
    return {
      bikes: [
          brand: "Schwinn",
          model: {
            name: "Classic",
            id: "1345"
          brand: "Red Line",
          model: {
            name: "Flight",
            id: "5430"
          brand: "Hoffman",
          model: {
            name: "Condore",
            id: "0543"
          brand: "Tribe",
          model: {
            name: "CRMO",
            id: "0432"
      keys: ["brand", "model.name", "model.id"]

Accessing Results from vue-fuse Component

Results are stored in the result data array of the vue-fuse component. The component watches the result array and emits an event when the array is changed. This event is named fuseResultsUpdated and contains the result array. You can also name the event yourself (this is handy if you have more than one instance of vue-fuse in your application) by passing in a string to the eventName prop.
