        vue: 'vue/dist/vue.js'

? Registering Draggable

// Vue3
import { createApp } from 'vue';
import Draggable, { DraggablePlugin, DraggableDirective } from '@braks/revue-draggable';

const app = createApp();

// Use as Plugin (registers directives and components)

// or
app.directive('draggable', DraggableDirective)
app.component('Draggable', Draggable);

// Vue2 
import Vue from 'vue';
import { DraggablePlugin, DraggableDirective } from '@braks/revue-draggable';

// Use as Plugin

// or
Vue.directive('draggable', DraggableDirective)
Vue.component('Draggable', Draggable)

? Quickstart

The easiest way to make your elements draggable is by using the DraggableDirective which will handle everything for you
with no configuration necessary.

  <div v-draggable="/* Pass DraggableProps as binding value here */" class="box">I use a directive to make myself draggable</div>
... the rest of your code

Or use the component wrapper.
(In Vue2 make sure to include the full-build, runtime-build only works for Vue3.)

    <div class="box">I use a wrapper</div>
... the rest of your code

Check the example file for more in-detail examples like dropping elements, setting boundaries or syncing states.
