Streamlit Custom Components + Vite + VueJS

Create Component based on VueJS

  • From the template folder
  • Create new component using vite and add code for testing the component
$ mkdir vite_vue_component
$ cd vite_vue_component
$ npm init vite@latest frontend --template vue # npm v6 (v7 is different)
$ touch # command may be different in Windows
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • Add in the code below
import os
import streamlit.components.v1 as components

_RELEASE = False

if not _RELEASE:
  _component_func = components.declare_component(
    url="http://localhost:3000", # vite dev server port
  parent_dir = os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__))
  build_dir = os.path.join(parent_dir, "frontend/dist")
  _component_func = components.declare_component("vite_vue_component", path=build_dir)

def my_component(name, key=None):
  component_value = _component_func(name=name, key=key, default=0)
  return component_value

if not _RELEASE:
  import streamlit as st
  st.subheader("Component Test")
  num_clicks = my_component(name = "NameViteVue")
  st.markdown("You've clicked %s times!" % int(num_clicks))
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • install the frontend node libraries, streamlit-component-lib, create vite.config.js
$ cd frontend
$ npm i
$ npm i streamlit-component-lib
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • Add the following property to vite.config.js
  base: './',
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • replace App.vue file with the following code
    <h1>{{ msg }}</h1>
    <button @click="doClick">click</button>
    <p>Count {{ count }}</p>

import { Streamlit } from 'streamlit-component-lib'
import { ref, onMounted } from 'vue'

export default {
  setup(props, context) {
    const msg = ref('No Msg')
    const count = ref(0)

    const doClick = () => {
      count.value += 1


    const onRender = (event) => {
      const data = event.detail
      msg.value = `Hello, ` + data.args['name']

    onMounted(() => {, onRender)

    return {

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Running the example

From the base directory, navigate to the frontend and serve it from a dev server:

$ cd template/vite_vue_component/frontend
$ npm run dev
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

On a separate terminal, from base directory, navigate to and run the Streamlit app (assuming python environment has been activated):

$ cd template
$ streamlit run vite_vue_component/  # run the example
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You should see the following image below. Button click will increment the count.
