VueJs Plugins


Vue plugins adds global functionality as, global methods, directives, transitions, filters, instance methods, objects and inject some component options using mixins


• MyPlugin.install = function (Vue, options) {}


VueVue constructor, injected by Vue
optionsAdditional options if needed


In most cases you will need to explicitly tell Vue to use a plugin
// calls `MyPlugin.install(Vue)`

To pass options
Vue.use(MyPlugin, { someOption: true })


Simple logger

export default {
 install(Vue, options) {
 function log(type, title, text) {
 console.log(`[${type}] ${title} - ${text}`);
 Vue.prototype.$log = {
 error(title, text) { log('danger', title, text) },
 success(title, text) { log('success', title, text) },

Before your main Vue instance tell to register your plugin
import Logger from './path/to/myLogger';
var vm = new Vue({
 el: '#app',
 template: '<App/>',
 components: { App }

Now you can call this.$log on any child component
export default {
 data() {
 return {};
 methods: {
 Save() {
 this.$log.success('Transaction saved!');
