Get started with Vue

Use Seam Components with Vue

Overview

This guide will show you how to use Seam Components inside a Vue application. Seam Components are implemented in React, but may be used anywhere as native web components.

1 - Get a Publishable Key from the Seam Console

To access the Seam API, you'll need a publishable key. This key identifies your application when making requests to Seam and is safe to embed in your frontend code.

Go to console.seam.co and select "Client Sessions" from the sidebar. You should then see a "Publishable Key" that you can copy.

2 - Install @seamapi/react in your Vue application

Install the npm package

npm install --save @seamapi/react
# or via yarn
yarn add @seamapi/react

Then import the custom elements bundle in you main.js application entrypoint:

import "@seamapi/react/elements.js"

import './assets/main.css'

import { createApp } from 'vue'

3 — Skip Component Resolution

From the Vue Docs:

By default, Vue will attempt to resolve a non-native HTML tag as a registered Vue component before falling back to rendering it as a custom element. This will cause Vue to emit a "failed to resolve component" warning during development. To let Vue know that certain elements should be treated as custom elements and skip component resolution, we can specify the compilerOptions.isCustomElement option.

// Only works if using in-browser compilation.
// If using build tools, see config examples below.
app.config.compilerOptions.isCustomElement = (tag) => tag.startsWith('seam-')

4 - Use the component

Use the components in App.vue:

<main>
  <seam-supported-device-table
    publishable-key="your_publishable_key'"
  ></seam-supported-device-table>
</main>

You should see a list of device models like what's shown below:
