Customizable Flowchart Component For Vue 3

An easy, customizable, fast, interactive flowchart component for Vue 3.

Basic usage:

1. Import the vue-flow.

import { VueFlow } from '@vue-flow/core'
// core stylesheet
@import "@vue-flow/core/dist/style.css";
// default theme (optional)
@import "@vue-flow/core/dist/theme-default.css";

2. Add the vue-flow component to the template.

  <VueFlow v-model="elements"></VueFlow>

3. Add nodes to the flowchart.

const elements = ref([
    id: '1',
    type: 'input', // input node
    label: 'Input Node',
    position: { x: 250, y: 25 },
    id: '2',
    label: 'Label 2',
    position: { x: 100, y: 125 },
    id: '3',
    type: 'output',
    label: 'Output Node',
    position: { x: 250, y: 250 },
  // edges
    id: 'e1-3', 
    source: '1', 
    target: '3', 
  // animated nodes
    id: 'e1-2', 
    source: '1', 
    target: '2', 
    animated: true 
    id: '4', 
    label: 'Node 4', 
    position: { x: 250, y: 5 },
    // additional CSS classes
    class: 'my-custom-node-class',
    // or using inline styles
    style: { backgroundColor: 'green', width: '200px', height: '100px' },
    // or using a function
    style: (el) => {
      if (el.selected) return { background: 'purple' }
      return { background: 'green' }
