About

Simple way to count characters, words, sentences, and paragraphs in your Vue apps.

Pass your text as a prop to the provided component, along with a unique elementId, and register for the change event to get real-time count updates.

Usage Example

import VueCountable from 'vue-countable'
Vue.component('vue-countable', VueCountable)
<!-- In your html - Make sure the elementId prop is unique on your page. -->
<vue-countable
    :text="myText" // Your text variable
    :elementId="'myId'" // A unique string id
    @change="change" // Register for the change event
></vue-countable>

<!-- The @change function -->
change (event) {
    console.log(event)
    // event.words to get word count, etc.
}

Now, anytime (and on component initialization) your myText variable changes, vue-countable will emit an event containing the details of your text. Register for this event as shown above to get your real-time counts.

Props
