// With options
Vue.use(VueDefine, options)

...

new Vue({...}).$mount('#app')

Options

  • options

    (optional) Must be an object.

    Has attributes of defines and dotenvConversionConfigOptions.

  • options.defines

    (optional) Must be an object.

    To define some pre-configurations if wanted.

    Eg: {APP_TITLE: 'My Website', APP_DESCRIPTION': 'A sample page of mine'}.

Features

Get or Set Configuration

Example of .env file in Vue application:

# .env file
VUE_APP_TITLE='My Website'
VUE_APP_DEBUG=true
VUE_APP_DATA='{"foo":"bar"}'

Those environment variables above will be automatically set in configuration after creating Vue application with vue-define.

Used in Vue components

// .vue file

<template>
   ...
</template>

<script>
export default {
    name: 'MyComponent',
    created() {

        // **Configuration**

        // Getting

        console.log(this.$defineManager.get('VUE_APP_TITLE')) // (string) 'My Website'
        console.log(this.$define.VUE_APP_TITLE) // (string) 'My Website'

        console.log(this.$defineManager.get('VUE_APP_DEBUG')) // (boolean) true
        console.log(this.$define.VUE_APP_DEBUG) // (boolean) true

        console.log(this.$defineManager.get('VUE_APP_DATA')) // (object) {foo: 'bar'}
        console.log(this.$define.VUE_APP_DATA) // (object) {foo: 'bar'}
        console.log(this.$defineManager.get('VUE_APP_DEBUG.foo')) // (string) 'bar'
        console.log(this.$define.VUE_APP_DATA.foo) // (string) 'bar'

        console.log(this.$defineManager.get('VUE_APP_NOT_SET')) // null
        console.log(this.$defineManager.get('VUE_APP_NOT_SET', 'default_value')) // (string) 'default_value'
        console.log(this.$define.VUE_APP_NOT_SET) // undefined

        // Setting

        this.$defineManager.set('VUE_APP_DATA.animals.dog', 'dog')
        this.$defineManager.set('VUE_APP_DATA.animals.cat', 'cat')
        console.log(this.$defineManager.get('VUE_APP_DATA.animals')) // (object) {dog: 'dog', cat: 'cat'}
        console.log(this.$define.VUE_APP_DATA.animals) // (object) {dog: 'dog', cat: 'cat'}

        this.$define.VUE_APP_DATA.vehices = {
            car: 'car',
            bike: 'bike',
        }
        console.log(this.$defineManager.get('VUE_APP_DATA.vehicles')) // (object) {car: 'car', bike: 'bike'}

Custom Configuration from Files

Example of configuration files:

// config.app.js file
export const LOG_ENABLED = true
export const LOG_METHOD = 'console'
// config.locale.js file
export default {
    LOCALES: {
        en: 'English',
        vi: 'Tiếng Việt',
    },
    DEFAULT_LOCALE: 'en',
    FALLBACK_LOCALE: 'en',
}
// config.lang.en.json file
{
    "LANG": {
        "en": {
            "hello": "Hello"
        }
    }
}
// config.lang.vi.json file
{
    "LANG": {
        "vi": {
            "hello": "Xin chào"
        }
    }
}

Load from those configuration files above:

import {Define, DefineManager} from 'vue-define'

DefineManager.import(
    import('./config.app'),
    import('./config.locale'),
    import('./config.lang.en.json'),
    import('./config.lang.vi.json')
).then(() => {
    console.log(Define.LOG_ENABLED) // (boolean) true
    console.log(Define.LOG_METHOD) // (string) 'console'
    console.log(Define.LOCALES) // (object) {en: 'English', vi: 'Tiếng Việt'}
    console.log(Define.DEFAULT_LOCALE) // (string) 'en'
    console.log(Define.FALLBACK_LOCALE) // (string) 'en'
    console.log(Define.LANG) // (object) {en: {hello: 'Hello'}, vi: {hello: 'Xin chào'}
})

Custom Configuration from Inline

import {Define, DefineManager} from 'vue-define'

DefineManager.append({
    LOG_ENABLED: true,
    LOG_METHOD: 'console',
}, {
    LOCALES: {
        en: 'English',
        vi: 'Tiếng Việt',
    },
    DEFAULT_LOCALE: 'en',
    FALLBACK_LOCALE: 'en',
}, {
    LANG: {
        en: {
            hello: 'Hello',

    LANG: {
        vi: {
            hello: 'Xin chào',
        }   
    }
})

console.log(Define.LOG_ENABLED) // (boolean) true
console.log(Define.LOG_METHOD) // (string) 'console'
console.log(Define.LOCALES) // (object) {en: 'English', vi: 'Tiếng Việt'}
