Vue Plugins

electron-vue comes packed with the following vue plugins that can be installed during vue-cli scaffolding...

  • axios (web requests)
  • vue-electron (attach electron APIs to Vue object)
  • vue-router (single page application routes)
  • vuex (flux-inspired application architecture)


Promise based HTTP client for the browser and node.js

If you are familiar with vue-resource, then axios will feel very familiar as most of the API is nearly identical. You can easily import axios in your main process scripts or use with this.$http & Vue.http in the renderer process.


The vue plugin that attaches electron APIs to the Vue object, making them accessible to all components.

A simple vue plugin that makes electron APIs easily accessible withthis.$electron, no longer needing to import electron into every component necessary.


vue-router is the official router for Vue.js. It deeply integrates with Vue.js core to make building Single Page Applications with Vue.js a breeze.

The provided project structure should feel familiar to the setup provided in the official vuejs-templates/webpack boilerplate.


Vuex is a state management pattern + library for Vue.js applications. It serves as a centralized store for all the components in an application, with rules ensuring that the state can only be mutated in a predictable fashion.

The provided project structure is rather bare but does encourage the use of vuex's module pattern to help organize your data stores. The extra @/store/modules/index.js let's your vuex store import all modules in a one-shot manner.
