Vue.js SVG Responsive Component

Simply Demonstrate a Vue.js component that returns a .svg file passed to the component as a property + turn the img html tag into a responsive/adaptative element using CSS rules


  • we use a computed property to work with the SVG file into the component.

note: Computed properties sit halfway between properties of the data object and methods: we can access them as if they were properties of the data object, but they are specified as functions...

  • we create a computed property function that returns the .svg file path using the require() method to access the assets folder
  • we create the full path to the .svg source file using the value stored/passed as the property (props) of the component this.SVGFile
  • we use the ES6 template literal syntax to construct the full path dynamically...
  • we bind the value of the computed property to the src attribute of the img html tag...
  • the responsive-img CSS class will let the img tag to automatically fit the size of its parent container

component src\components\SVG-image.vue

    <img class="responsive-img" alt="JS logo" :src="path">

export default {
  name: 'SVG-image',
  props: {
    SVGFile: String
  computed: {
      return require( `@/assets/svg/${this.SVGFile}`)

<style lang="scss" scoped>

  max-width: 100%;
  height: auto;


Using the component src\App.vue

  <div id="app">
      <SVGImage SVGFile='logo-js.svg'/>

import SVGImage from './components/SVG-image.vue'

export default {
  name: 'app',
  components: {

Git Concepts I Wish I Knew Years Ago

The most used technology by developers is not Javascript.

It's not Python or HTML.

It hardly even gets mentioned in interviews or listed as a pre-requisite for jobs.

I'm talking about Git and version control of course.

One does not simply learn git
