webpack loader for Vue Single-File Components

NOTE: The master branch now hosts the code for v15! Legacy code is now in the v14 branch.

What is Vue Loader?

vue-loader is a loader for webpack that allows you to author Vue components in a format called Single-File Components (SFCs):

<template>
  <div class="example">{{ msg }}</div>
</template>

<script>
export default {
  data () {
    return {
      msg: 'Hello world!'
    }
  }
}
</script>

<style>
.example {
  color: red;
}
</style>

There are many cool features provided by vue-loader:

  • Allows using other webpack loaders for each part of a Vue component, for example Sass for <style> and Pug for <template>;
  • Allows custom blocks in a .vue file that can have custom loader chains applied to them;
  • Treat static assets referenced in <style> and <template> as module dependencies and handle them with webpack loaders;
  • Simulate scoped CSS for each component;
  • State-preserving hot-reloading during development.

In a nutshell, the combination of webpack and vue-loader gives you a modern, flexible and extremely powerful front-end workflow for authoring Vue.js applications.
