Vue Composition API

Vue Composition API

@vue/composition-api provides a way to use Vue 3.0's Composition api in Vue 2.x.

中文文档


Navigation

Installation

npm

npm install @vue/composition-api --save

yarn

yarn add @vue/composition-api

CDN

<script src="https://unpkg.com/@vue/composition-api/dist/vue-composition-api.umd.js"></script>

By using the global variable window.vueCompositionApi

Usage

You must install @vue/composition-api via Vue.use() before using other APIs:

import Vue from 'vue';
import VueCompositionApi from '@vue/composition-api';

Vue.use(VueCompositionApi);

After installing the plugin you can use the Composition API to compose your component.

TypeScript

This plugin requires TypeScript version >3.5.1. If you are using vetur, make sure to set vetur.useWorkspaceDependencies to true.

To let TypeScript properly infer types inside Vue component options, you need to define components with createComponent:

import { createComponent } from '@vue/composition-api';

const Component = createComponent({
  // type inference enabled
});

const Component = {
  // this will NOT have type inference,
  // because TypeScript can't tell this is options for a Vue component.
};

TSX

🚀 An Example Repository with TS and TSX support is provided to help you start.

To support TSX, create a declaration file with following content in your project.

// file: shim-tsx.d.ts
import Vue, { VNode } from 'vue';
import { ComponentRenderProxy } from '@vue/composition-api';

declare global {
  namespace JSX {
    // tslint:disable no-empty-interface
    interface Element extends VNode {}
    // tslint:disable no-empty-interface
    interface ElementClass extends ComponentRenderProxy {}
    interface ElementAttributesProperty {
      $props: any; // specify the property name to use
    }
    interface IntrinsicElements {
      [elem: string]: any;
    }
  }
}

Limitations

Ref Unwrap

Unwrap is not working with Array index.

Should not store ref as a direct child of Array:

const state = reactive({
  list: [ref(0)],
});
// no unwrap, `.value` is required
state.list[0].value === 0; // true

state.list.push(ref(1));
// no unwrap, `.value` is required
state.list[1].value === 1; // true

Should not use ref in a plain object when working with Array:

const a = {
  count: ref(0),
};
const b = reactive({
  list: [a], // `a.count` will not unwrap!!
});

// no unwrap for `count`, `.value` is required
b.list[0].count.value === 0; // true
const b = reactive({
  list: [
    {
      count: ref(0), // no unwrap!!
    },
  ],
});

// no unwrap for `count`, `.value` is required
b.list[0].count.value === 0; // true

Should always use ref in a reactive when working with Array:

const a = reactive({
  count: ref(0),
});
const b = reactive({
  list: [a],
});
// unwrapped
b.list[0].count === 0; // true

b.list.push(
  reactive({
    count: ref(1),
  })
);
// unwrapped
b.list[1].count === 1; // true

watch() API

onTrack and onTrigger are not available in WatchOptions.


Template Refs

Support      Not Supported

String ref && return it from setup():

<template>
  <div ref="root"></div>
</template>

<script>
  export default {
    setup() {
      const root = ref(null);

      onMounted(() => {
        // the DOM element will be assigned to the ref after initial render
        console.log(root.value); // <div/>
      });

      return {
        root,
      };
    },
  };
</script>

String ref && return it from setup() && Render Function / JSX:

export default {
  setup() {
    const root = ref(null);

    onMounted(() => {
      // the DOM element will be assigned to the ref after initial render
      console.log(root.value); // <div/>
    });

    return {
      root,
    };
  },
  render() {
    // with JSX
    return () => <div ref="root" />;
  },
};

Function ref:

<template>
  <div :ref="el => root = el"></div>
</template>

<script>
  export default {
    setup() {
      const root = ref(null);

      return {
        root,
      };
    },
  };
</script>

Render Function / JSX in setup():

export default {
  setup() {
    const root = ref(null);

    return () =>
      h('div', {
        ref: root,
      });

    // with JSX
    return () => <div ref={root} />;
  },
};

If you really want to use template refs in this case, you can access vm.$refs via SetupContext.refs.

⚠️ Warning: The SetupContext.refs won't exist in Vue 3.0. @vue/composition-api provide it as a workaround here.

export default {
  setup(initProps, setupContext) {
    const refs = setupContext.refs;
    onMounted(() => {
      // the DOM element will be assigned to the ref after initial render
      console.log(refs.root); // <div/>
    });

    return () =>
      h('div', {
        ref: 'root',
      });

    // with JSX
    return () => <div ref="root" />;
  },
};

You may also need to augment the SetupContext when working with TypeScript:

import Vue from 'vue';
import VueCompositionApi from '@vue/composition-api';

Vue.use(VueCompositionApi);

declare module '@vue/composition-api/dist/component/component' {
  interface SetupContext {
    readonly refs: { [key: string]: Vue | Element | Vue[] | Element[] };
  }
}
You can’t perform that action at this time.
