Getting Started

uiv is a Bootstrap 3 component lib implemented by Vue 2.

  • Lightweight
    • All components ~20KB Gziped.
    • Dependencies only Vue & Bootstrap CSS.
    • No extra CSS.
    • Individually import supported.
  • IE 9+ & modern browsers supported.
  • SSR (server-side rendering) supported.
  • All env supported:
    • UMD build uiv.min.js can be used in all environments (including browser)
    • ES Module build uiv.esm.js is for modern bundlers like webpack 2 or rollup
    • CommonJS build uiv.common.js is for older bundlers like browserify or webpack 1.


If you are using module bundlers such as Webpack, you can directly include package into your project via:


$ npm install uiv --save

or Yarn:

$ yarn add uiv

Then register uiv components and directives all at once in your app's entry:

// main.js
import 'bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css'

import Vue from 'vue'
import * as uiv from 'uiv'


That's it. Happy coding!

No conflict

All components & directives will be installed with no prefix by default, you can add any prefix to them to avoid conflicts with other libs if needed.

For example:

Vue.use(uiv, {prefix: 'uiv'})

Results in:

  • Components such as <alert> becomes <uiv-alert>
  • Directives such as v-tooltip becomes v-uiv-tooltip
  • Global methods such as $alert becomes $uiv_alert

Import individually

If you don't want all of the components for some reason (e.g. to save the bundle size), you can also import them individually.


import { Alert } from 'uiv'

new Vue({
  components: {


You can load & install uiv package directly in browsers. For example:

<!-- Remember to import Vue and Bootstrap CSS file before this! -->
<script src="//"></script>

This will simply load the latest version of uiv.min.js into your page. For detail usages (e.g. load specify version, IMPORTANT in production mode) and different CDN providers, you can visit:

Complete usage example

<!-- index.html -->
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="">
  <script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>
<div id="app">
    <tab>Tab content 1.</tab>
    <tab>Tab content 2.</tab>
  // No need to install uiv, we already do this for you after script loaded.
  // Define `window.__uiv_options` before script loaded if you need install options.
  new Vue().$mount('#app')

This will create a working Tabs component on your page.

Browser compatibility

All browsers supported by Vue 2 and Bootstrap 3 CSS are suppose to be also supported by this lib (IE8 and below are not supported).
