Default Tags

We can initialize smart-tagz with some default tags. This setting will mostly be used along with the readonly prop to create tags for display only purposes.

<smart-tagz :default-tags="['United Kingdom', 'Uruguay', 'Uzbekistan']" />


You can decide how to manage duplicate tags by either allowing or disallowing them completely. When set to false no duplicate values are allowed.

<smart-tagz :allow-duplicates="false" />

Auto Suggest

Whe set to true, the autosuggest prop suggests values in a dropdown. You also need to set the sources prop for this to work. The sources prop can be an Array of strings.

 <smart-tagz autosuggest :sources="['India', 'Brazil', 'China', 'United Kingdom']" />

Max Tags

The component can also be configured to accept the Maximum number of tags that can be created. Once the threshold is reached, the input will be hidden from the user.

Here we restrict the tags to 3

<smart-tagz :max-tags="3" />


The component can parse strings and automatically create tags for you. The default delimiter is "," but you can override this setting by manually setting the delimiter option.

<smart-tagz :allow-paste="{delimiter: ';'}" />

Editable Tags

The Tags are not editable by default, but you can change this setting with the editable prop. Simply double click a tag, make the changes and hit enter to save.

<smart-tagz editable />

Readonly Tags

You can lock the component with readonly mode. All interactions are disabled in read-only mode.

<smart-tagz read-only />


The components color scheme can be customized by passing a custom theme prop.

      primary: '#545454',
      background: '#bdbdbd',
      tagTextColor: '#fff',
