:construction: VSTX Data Table is under active development building towards a 1.0 production ready release.

The VSTX Data Table is a powerful data grid component plugin (Vue.js 2.4+) for displaying, sorting, searching, filtering, and interacting with large and deeply nested data sets. As simple as passing a Prop containing an array of objects, as complex you need it to be.

Theme (Look & Feel): We rely on the Bulma (https://bulma.io/) CSS framework and FontAwesome icons for themeing. These are needed for the component to display properly. Support for other CSS frameworks like Bootstrap can be achieved using additional CSS. Other icon sets can currently be used by overriding the icons with named slots.

Current Features

  • Deep (nested) Sorting, Filtering, and Searching by All/Column
  • Multi-Column Sorts with Sort By configuration
  • Works with large datasets (Tested with 25k rows of complex nested objects)
  • Customize Row/Column/Cell content using Vue.js Named & Scoped Slots
  • Customize Title, Description, Icons, Loading Animation, Errors, and more using Slots
  • Selectable rows with @onSelect event
  • Built-in Loading animation controlled through Prop
  • Client-side exports of data to CSV and Excel
  • Optional Column Totals by Page & All
  • Automatic Pagination with configurable page size
  • On-page configurations for Column Position, Sort Order, and much more
  • Configuration Prop input and Emits configuration change events to support configuration persistence
  • Built-in Filters for Outputting Money, Numbers, and Dates (including timezone support)
  • Support for Custom Filters with n parameters
  • Text Replacement for variable Links
  • Hidden Columns
  • (Optional) Web Worker support for Filtering, Sorting, and Slicing data


  • Add Weighted Multi-Column Sorting
  • Abstract the CSS layer for supporting any CSS Framework/Icon Set
  • Improve mobile support (~~Fixed headers~~ and first column)
  • Add Calculated Fields using basic Sum/Averages Formulas (can currently be achieved using Slots)
  • Extend support for higher level math/formula functions
  • Incorporate Native Web Components in our 2.0 release
  • Build testing suite for both UX/UI & low level support for testing formulas/math functions
  • ~~Move thread-expensive Filtering, Sorting, and Slicing to Web Workers to reduce UI blocking~~
  • ~~Support Complex Objects in Sort, Filter, and Search~~
  • ~~Multi-column Sorting~~
  • ~~Selectable Rows~~
  • ~~Manage dependencies as externals~~
  • ~~Treeshake lodash in build~~

Example Directory

We've build a fully axios enabled data-table example ready to install. Clone this project locally and run npm install in the ./examples/ directory And to view the live project, run npm run serve to see the fully working version.

A live demo can be found at www.vuestacks.com/data-table. This is still a work in progress and over the next few months we plan on adding dozens of features such as Data-fetching, caching, user preference persistence, data-table report collections, live data editing and much more!


npm install --save vstx-data-table


We use pug & stylus in all of our code and examples. Please make adjustments if you wish you get the example below to work without installing support for pug or stylus. The example below will render a simple data-table with 3 columns, a custom title via slot, and for 2/3 columns a customized presentation of header and cell content via slots. More complex examples are available at www.vuestacks.com/data-table

<template lang="pug">
        //- SLOT: Table Title
            h1.title.has-text-link Data Table Example
        //- SLOTS: Title Column
        template(slot="title-header", slot-scope="table")
          span.has-text-danger Titles
        template(slot="title", slot-scope="table")
          span.has-text-success {{ table.item.title }}
        //- SLOTS: Amount
        template(slot="amount-header", slot-scope="table")
          span.has-text-warning $
        template(slot="amount", slot-scope="table")
          em.has-text-info ${{ table.item.amount.toFixed(2) }}
