Qdt-components with Vue.js


I have talked about about qdt-components in the past and how it can be used with Angular, React and in a simple html page.

qdt-components - A Components Library that can be used in simple Html, Angular 5 and React

Today I will show you how to use it with Vue.js.

You can start by the template that we put together https://github.com/qlik-demo-team/qdt-vue-template.

The main component is the QdtComponent.vue https://github.com/qlik-demo-team/qdt-vue-template/blob/master/src/components/QdtComponent.vue

import QdtComponents from 'qdt-components';

const options = {

  config: {

    host: '<yourserver.com>',

    secure: true,

    port: 443,

    prefix: '',

    appId: '133dab5d-8f56-4d40-b3e0-a6b401391bde',


  connections: {

    vizApi: true,

    engineApi: true,



const qdtComponents = new QdtComponents(options.config, options.connections);

export default {

  name: 'QdtComponent',

  props: {

    type: String,

    props: Object,


  mounted() {

    qdtComponents.render(this.type, this.props, this.$el);



Then you can create your pages and start adding your visualizations.

To embed a simple Qlik Sense chart just add this line

<QdtComponent :type="viz2.type" :props="viz2.props"  />

Where viz2 is

const viz2 = {

  type: 'QdtViz',

  props: {

    type: 'barchart', id: 'a5e0f12c-38f5-4da9-8f3f-0e4566b28398', height: '300px',

Personally I find vuejs to be much more intuitive than the other two. Thanks for this!
