Notice

Before using the plugin & components, here's something you should know:

  • It's based on vue-rx.
  • rxjs and vue-rx are required as peer dependencies.
  • Components are responsive base on width instead of height, see Component Layout.
  • You can clip your images (local uploaded images or images served on your site), but you cannot clip a cross-origin image unless the image server sets the CORS headers.
  • Components' input is an image URL, output is a canvas element, they only help you clip images to canvas, you need to handle other things like transform file input to image URL or transform output canvas to image by yourself.
  • If you set the clipper to be responsive, for example: put it in a Row, Col system or set its width based on the container's width, you will lose a little bit of precision. The result of the clipper and the clip box position might not be that accurate. If you cannot tolerate the slippage, use fixed width ${width + border*2}px on the clipper component like width: 502px.

Installation (NPM & ESM)

Install vuejs-clipper

npm install vuejs-clipper --save

Install peer dependencies if you haven't.

npm install vue-rx rxjs --save

Vuejs-clipper is based on vue-rx, so make sure you have the vue-rx plugin installed.

import Vue from 'vue'
import VueRx from 'vue-rx'
// install vue-rx
Vue.use(VueRx)

Make sure to install vue-rx plugin first.

Import

use dist files

import Vue from "vue";
import VueRx from "vue-rx";
// Use build files
import VuejsClipper from "vuejs-clipper/dist/vuejs-clipper.umd";
import "vuejs-clipper/dist/vuejs-clipper.css";

Vue.use(VueRx);
Vue.use(VuejsClipper);

use vuejs-clipper soruce

You are using vuejs-clipper directly with your build process(webpack etc).

So make sure you have css loader, ex: sass-loader if you haven't installed :

npm install -D sass-loader node-sass
import Vue from 'vue'
import VueRx from 'vue-rx'
import VuejsClipper from 'vuejs-clipper'
// install vue-rx
Vue.use(VueRx)
// install vuejs-clipper
Vue.use(VuejsClipper)

Config

By default vuejs-clipper plugin will register all components to Vue global scope.

register some components to global with default component name

Vue.use(VuejsClipper, {
 components: {
    clipperBasic: true,
    clipperPreview: true
 }
})

with the customized component name

Vue.use(VuejsClipper, {
 components: {
  clipperBasic: 'image-clipper-basic',
  clipperPreview: 'my-preview'
 }
})

not register any components, but with some plugin options

Vue.use(VuejsClipper, {
  components: null,
 parentPropName: 'myCustomerName'
  /*
   parentPropName:
    Vuejs-clipper Adds property to Vue instance in order to store `clipper-preview` list.
    You can change the property name
    default: '_imgPreviewLists'
  */
})

separately import components (need css loader)

import Vue from 'vue'
import VueRx from 'vue-rx'
// install vue-rx
Vue.use(VueRx)

then import in your components (SFC)

import { clipperBasic, clipperPreview } from 'vuejs-clipper'

export default {
  components: {
    clipperBasic,
    clipperPreview
  }
}

Installation (Script)

Include vuejs-clipper umd script after Vue.js.

<!-- rxjs-->
<script src="https://unpkg.com/rxjs/bundles/rxjs.umd.js"></script>
<!--vue-->
