SC-Vue provides a shortcode to inject Vue.js apps
into WordPress pages and posts. For example, the following shortcode
would inject the ‘demo_posts’ app:

  [pl2010_vue app="demo_posts"/]

An app is made up of two files, index.js and index.html. They reside
in a subdirectory bearing the app’s name under the ‘apps’ directory
in the plugin. For the ‘demo_posts’ app, that means:

  • WP_PLUGIN_DIR/sc-vue/apps/demo_posts/index.js
  • WP_PLUGIN_DIR/sc-vue/apps/demo_posts/index.html

The index.js Javascript file sets up an initialization function for
creating a Vue model. That model controls a <div> DOM element that
SC-Vue renders; the content of that <div> comes from index.html.

See apps/demo_01 and apps/demo_02 for simple examples of index.js
and index.html. For a more complex and realistic example that uses
webpack.js to packs Javascript and styles
into a single index.js, see apps/demo_posts. Additional details may
be found in the documentation of the shortcode function in init.php.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the ‘WP_PLUGIN_DIR/sc-vue’
    directory, or install the plugin through the ‘Plugin’s screen in
  2. Activate the plugin.
  3. Install any additional Vue app in ‘WP_PLUGIN_DIR/sc-vue/apps’.
    Note that app name must be simple identifier that begins with a letter
    followed by any number of digits, letters, and the underscore.
  4. Startg using shortcode [pl2010_vue app="..."/]!
