Installation

Compatibility Note

Vue.js does not support IE8 and below, because Vue.js uses ECMAScript 5 features that are un-shimmable in IE8. However Vue.js supports all ECMAScript 5 compliant browsers.

Release Notes

Detailed release notes for each version are available on GitHub.

Standalone

Simply download and include with a script tag. Vue will be registered as a global variable. Pro tip: don’t use the minified version during development. you will miss out all the nice warnings for common mistakes.


Development VersionWith full warnings and debug mode

Production VersionWarnings stripped, 26.03kb min+gzip

CDN

Available on jsdelivr or cdnjs (takes some time to sync so the latest version might not be available yet).

Also available on npmcdn, which will reflect the latest version as soon as it is published to npm. You can also browse the source of the npm package at npmcdn.com/vue/.

CSP-compliant build

Some environments, such as Google Chrome Apps, enforces Content Security Policy (CSP) and does not allow the use of new Function() for evaluating expressions. In these cases you can use the CSP-compliant build instead.

NPM

NPM is the recommended installation method when building large scale apps with Vue.js. It pairs nicely with a CommonJS module bundler such as Webpack or Browserify. Vue.js also provides accompanying tools for authoring Single File Components.

# latest stable
$ npm install vue
# latest stable + CSP-compliant
$ npm install [email protected]

CLI

Vue.js provides an official CLI for quickly scaffolding ambitious Single Page Applications. It provides battery-included build setups for a modern frontend workflow. It takes only a few minutes to get up and running with hot-reload, lint-on-save and production-ready builds:

# install vue-cli
$ npm install -g vue-cli
# create a new project using the "webpack" boilerplate
$ vue init webpack my-project
# install dependencies and go!
$ cd my-project
$ npm install
$ npm run dev

Dev Build

Important: the CommonJS bundle distributed on NPM (vue.common.js) is only checked-in during releases on the master branch, so the file in the dev branch is the same as the stable release. To use Vue from the latest source code on GitHub, you will have to build it yourself!

git clone https://github.com/vuejs/vue.git node_modules/vue
cd node_modules/vue
npm install
npm run build

Bower

# latest stable
$ bower install vue

AMD Module Loaders

The standalone downloads or versions installed via Bower are wrapped with UMD so they can be used directly as an AMD module.
