Quasar is a popular Vue UI library for developing good looking Vue apps.

In this article, we’ll take a look at how to create Vue apps with the Quasar UI library.

Chips

We can add chips to show small bits of information.

For instance, we can write:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<link
href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:100,300,400,500,700,900|Material+Icons"
rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css"
/>
<link
href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/quasar@1.12.13/dist/quasar.min.css"
rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css"
/>
</head>
<body class="body--dark">
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/vue@^2.0.0/dist/vue.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/quasar@1.12.13/dist/quasar.umd.min.js"></script>
<div id="q-app">
<q-layout
view="lHh Lpr lFf"
container
style="height: 100vh;"
class="shadow-2 rounded-borders"
>
<q-chip color="teal" text-color="white" icon="bookmark">
Bookmark
</q-chip>
</q-layout>
</div>
<script>
new Vue({
el: "#q-app",
data: {}
});
</script>
</body>
</html>

We add the q-chip component.

color sets the background color.

icon sets the icon to show on the left side.

text-color changes the text color.

We can also add an avatar into a chip:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<link
href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:100,300,400,500,700,900|Material+Icons"
rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css"
/>
<link
href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/quasar@1.12.13/dist/quasar.min.css"
rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css"
/>
</head>
<body class="body--dark">
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/vue@^2.0.0/dist/vue.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/quasar@1.12.13/dist/quasar.umd.min.js"></script>
<div id="q-app">
<q-layout
view="lHh Lpr lFf"
container
style="height: 100vh;"
class="shadow-2 rounded-borders"
>
<q-chip>
<q-avatar>
<img src="https://cdn.quasar.dev/img/avatar5.jpg" />
</q-avatar>
James
</q-chip>
</q-layout>
</div>
<script>
new Vue({
el: "#q-app",
data: {}
});
</script>
</body>
</html>

We can add the dense prop to reduce the padding:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<link
href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:100,300,400,500,700,900|Material+Icons"
rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css"
/>
<link
href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/quasar@1.12.13/dist/quasar.min.css"
rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css"
/>
</head>
<body class="body--dark">
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/vue@^2.0.0/dist/vue.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/quasar@1.12.13/dist/quasar.umd.min.js"></script>
<div id="q-app">
<q-layout
view="lHh Lpr lFf"
container
style="height: 100vh;"
class="shadow-2 rounded-borders"
>
<q-chip dense color="primary" text-color="white" icon="event">
Add to calendar
</q-chip>
</q-layout>
</div>
<script>
new Vue({
el: "#q-app",
data: {}
});
</script>
</body>
</html>

The size of it can also change with the size prop:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<link
href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:100,300,400,500,700,900|Material+Icons"
rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css"
/>
<link
href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/quasar@1.12.13/dist/quasar.min.css"
rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css"
/>
</head>
<body class="body--dark">
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/vue@^2.0.0/dist/vue.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/quasar@1.12.13/dist/quasar.umd.min.js"></script>
<div id="q-app">
<q-layout
view="lHh Lpr lFf"
container
style="height: 100vh;"
class="shadow-2 rounded-borders"
>
<q-chip size="lg" icon="bookmark">
Bookmark
</q-chip>
</q-layout>
</div>
<script>
new Vue({
el: "#q-app",
data: {}
});
</script>
</body>
</html>

Other values for size include xs , sm , md , and xl ,

We can make the chip rectangular with the square prop:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<link
href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:100,300,400,500,700,900|Material+Icons"
rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css"
/>
<link
href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/quasar@1.12.13/dist/quasar.min.css"
rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css"
/>
</head>
<body class="body--dark">
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/vue@^2.0.0/dist/vue.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/quasar@1.12.13/dist/quasar.umd.min.js"></script>
<div id="q-app">
<q-layout
view="lHh Lpr lFf"
container
style="height: 100vh;"
class="shadow-2 rounded-borders"
>
<q-chip square icon="bookmark">
Bookmark
</q-chip>
</q-layout>
</div>
<script>
new Vue({
el: "#q-app",
data: {}
});
</script>
</body>
</html>

We can add the outline prop to remove the background color:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<link
href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:100,300,400,500,700,900|Material+Icons"
rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css"
/>
<link
href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/quasar@1.12.13/dist/quasar.min.css"
rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css"
/>
</head>
<body class="body--dark">
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/vue@^2.0.0/dist/vue.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/quasar@1.12.13/dist/quasar.umd.min.js"></script>
<div id="q-app">
<q-layout
view="lHh Lpr lFf"
container
style="height: 100vh;"
class="shadow-2 rounded-borders"
>
<q-chip outline icon="bookmark">
Bookmark
</q-chip>
</q-layout>
</div>
<script>
new Vue({
el: "#q-app",
data: {}
});
</script>
</body>
</html>
