Looking at the top Vue component libraries will be quite helpful if you’re building something big with Vue and using components extensively. In this article, I present to you the 10 best Vue component libraries in the market today, taking into account both popularity and functionality. Keep in mind that these are subjective rankings and that the libraries can be used interchangeably based on your needs and preferences. Happy coding!
#1 – Material UI
Using Google’s Material Design as a foundation, Material UI is a great choice if you want to add some style to your app. It has been downloaded over 100,000 times and averages 4.8 stars on GitHub.
#2 – Ant Design
If you’re not looking to reinvent an entire library, Ant Design offers a curated list of high-quality components (which they keep up-to-date with frequent releases). This is just one of their many web frameworks, but it’s a great way to kickstart your next application. (GitHub Project)
#3 – Quasar Framework
If you’re looking to build a large-scale web application (with real, complex data and features), Quasar Framework is one of your best bets. It also offers a decent selection of UI components so you can build an app from scratch (without having to integrate any third-party frameworks).
#5 – Nova
A lightweight and flexible library that provides a lot of functionalities, such as an event system, two-way binding support and much more. Although it’s not completely feature-complete yet, it already has a good number of useful components that can easily be combined with other libraries. It will most likely be used in conjunction with one or more of our other top picks and is definitely worth checking out.
#6 – Snackbars.vue
This component provides a nice way to display short messages and warnings in an unobtrusive way. It’s a very easy way to get feedback from your user when they don’t know how to proceed, or you want them to take some kind of action that doesn’t warrant a full modal. It’s also very well documented, so if you have any questions at all, they can probably be answered there.
#7 – Vuetify
Vuetify is a Material Design framework built on top of Vue.js, it contains all of Google’s material design components and doesn’t depend on any CSS framework. Vuetify is responsive out of the box and has plenty of available custom components to extend its functionality. This means that you get an easy way to create native-looking apps without having to rework your design at all screen sizes.
#8 – Quill
Out of all of these libraries, Quill is perhaps my favourite. At its core, Quill is a text editor — but what it can do as a text editor is beyond your typical WYSIWYG and quick editing features. Quill will play nicely with many other frameworks like Next or Next, however, it’s quickly becoming a standalone framework in its own right.
#9 – Bootstrap 4 Components
One of Bootstrap’s best features is its extensive collection of components. While Vue doesn’t have anything quite like Bootstrap, it does have a number of component libraries that provide common UI elements to build upon. Two popular choices are Vuetify and Linux.
#10 – Bare-UI
Bare-UI offers minimal, yet robust UI components built with web standards. It’s an excellent choice if you prefer to build your own CSS styling rather than rely on a pre-built theme.
In conclusion, we have attempted to list down some of the best component libraries that would help you build beautiful and professional websites. If you are planning to hire Vue.JS developers or want to use any of these component libraries, feel free to contact us.
