Breaking Changes for verison 1.x:

  • Tag is now v-responsive the old v-responsiveness is no longer supported.
  • The file Vue_Responsive.common.js does no longer exist

Is a directive to use responsive breakpoints on html elements. Because sometimes it's nice to have a chance to let the view do resolution specific things.

  • No further Dependencies
  • 🔧 Chrome, Firefox, IE11+

📺 Check the Demo-link (IE11-Demo without webpack)

📖 Docs

🔧 Install

npm install vue-responsive

import responsive from 'vue-responsive'

👈 Shortest usecase

Just put the breakpoint identifiers behind the directive with dots:

   <div v-responsive.lg.xl >Only visible on desktop !</div>

   <div    >Visible on tablet ☺</div>

   <div >Only visible on smartphone!</div>

👈 Small usage example

    <h1 v-responsive="'hidden-xs'">Big Title</h1>
    <div v-responsive="['hidden-all','xs','sm']">
      Only visible in small and extra-small windows

    <h1 v-responsive="middleSize">Big Jumbotron</h1>

  import vueResponsive from 'vue-responsive'
  Vue.directive('responsive', vueResponsive)
	middleSize: ['hidden-all','lg','xl']


This directive adds responsive Feautures to single HTML-Elements without CSS or @Media.

The default Responsive breaks follow Bootstrap 4 Responsive Utils.

The Bootstrap 3 breakpoints are includes as well.

In the browser just include the script and use the directive on a Html-Element inside a Vue Element

<script src="Vue-Responsive.min.js"></script>

Advanced: If you do not want the directive to be globally available just add the attribute notGlobal with a not empty value in the script tag and define it the components with:

    <script src="Vue-Responsive.min.js" notGlobal="true" ></script>	
		// the global variable is 'index.vueResponsive'
		responsive: index.vueResponsive

For Bootstrap 4 breakpoints

At default every resolution is visible, the hidden-all tag changes this to everything hidden (display:none). These tags are valid hidden-all, xs, sm, md, lg, xl, hidden-xs,...,hidden-xl.

  <h1 v-responsive="'hidden-xs'">Big Title</h1>
  <div v-responsive="['hidden-all','md','lg']">Only visible in Middle and large Size View</div>
  <div v-responsive="['hidden-lg']">Only hidden at lg</div>

  <h1 v-responsive="middleSize">Jumbotron</h1>
  ...	//in the vue object

For Bootstrap 3 breakpoints

Just add :bs3 after the directive to use bootstrap 3 breakpoints:

  <p v-responsive:bs3="['hidden-xs']">
    As you can see on the big picture below.<br /><img ... />

In this defintion the xl breakpoint doesn't exist.

For self defined breakpoints

First you have to declar your own breakpoints in the component/root wich wraps the html-elements with the directive. Every definition must start with responsiveMarks$$ and a following name. So you can easily create breakpoints to differentiate between desktop and smartphones for instance, as you can see in the demo.html:

  <p v-responsive:twoMarks="'hidden-desktop'">
    Visible on smartphone<br />
    <img src="" />

  ... //in the vue object
    responsiveMarks$$twoMarks: {  //set a custom breakpoint with the name "twoMarks"
      smartphone: { 
        show: true, 
        min: -1, 
        max: 767 
      desktop: { 
        show: true, 
        min: 768, 
        max: Infinity 

You can declar as much own definitions as you wish. Every defintion should have min:-1 for its smalles breakpoint and max:Infinity for its biggest.
