Vue 3 UI component library for 2021

Vue has released its 3.0 version while most of its ecosystem library such as UI component libraries are still under development to the new version.

Let see if there are some UI component libraries that work with Vue 3 for 2021 by comparing the development progress of the top 3 UI component libraries.

1. Element ✅

Element Plus

Element is a UI component library for web developers and a design language for designers. It works with Vue’s Server-Side Rendering (SSR). Element also has a good community and regular updates.

As we could tell from it's Github, they have released a new version called Element Plus for Vue 3 😁. A production-ready version that we could use today.

2. Ionic ✅

Ionic is an open-source mobile UI toolkit for building high quality, cross-platform native and web app experiences.

According to its website, Ionic Vue is built on top of Vue 3.0.0.

3. Primevue ✅

Primevue is a simple to use, versatile, performant Vue UI Component Library to build stunning user interfaces.

According to its website, Primevue3 supports Vue 3.

4. Vuetify ❌

Vuetify is a framework over Vue, which lets you create clean, semantic, reusable UI components.

According to its website, the migration is still under development and we could use it in 2021 Q3 😭, which is a long time to wait.

5. Quasar ❌

Quasar is a front end framework based on Vue. You should consider it if you plan to work on the responsive web and mobile applications.

As mentioned on its Github, there's no release that works with Vue 3, however, there will be one soon in 2021 Q1😥.

At last, we've compared the top 3 UI component libraries and Element UI is the only winner that already supports Vue 3 at present. Wish other libraries in the Vue ecosystem could work harder to make it fully compatible with the new version of Vue.

Good news! Quasar is in beta and can be used today! It was held up from releasing out of beta because of SSR bugs in Vue 3, which were recently fixed. So, voila! Quasar release with fully implemented SSR, just yesterday. In 2 more weeks, it gets out of beta and full release mode.

Hi Olivia, may I suggest a library I recently released called AgnosticUI —

It's using Vue 3 and composition API!

🔥 Available in React, Vue 3, Angular, and Svelte
🙌 Vanilla JavaScript works too!! 😎
🖌️ CSS custom properties-based theming
💪 Clean, semantic, and accessible HTML
💯 Decoupled standards-based CSS (no preprocessing)

Just yesterday I was checking on the availability of these libraries for Vue 3, for a new project I'll be working on!

I've used Element UI for years, but now I need more mobile-friendly components, so I'm willing to wait for Quasar and to use its revamped version.

Ionic is built on Vue 3! It's a great option for making native, cross-platform PWAs - kinda similar to Quasar

is Element UI responsive? I used one project with Element UI and it works only on desktop, not on the phone for me.
