Vue wrapper for TOAST UI Image Editor

This is a Vue component wrapping TOAST UI Image Editor.

Collect statistics on the use of open source

TOAST UI ImageEditor applies Google Analytics (GA) to collect statistics on the use of open source, in order to identify how widely TOAST UI ImageEditor is used throughout the world. It also serves as important index to determine the future course of projects. location.hostname (e.g. > “”) is to be collected and the sole purpose is nothing but to measure statistics on the usage. To disable GA, use the following usageStatistics option when creating the instance.

const options = {
    usageStatistics: false

const imageEditor = new tui.ImageEditor('#tui-image-editor-container', options);

Or, include tui-code-snippet(v1.4.0 or later) and then immediately write the options as follows:

tui.usageStatistics = false;

? Install

Using npm

npm install --save @toast-ui/vue-image-editor

If you install other packages, you may lose dependency on fabric. You need to reinstall the fabric.

npm install --no-save --no-optional fabric@~4.2.0

? Usage


  • Using namespace

    const ImageEditor = toastui.ImageEditor;
  • Using module

    // es modules
    import { ImageEditor } from '@toast-ui/vue-image-editor';
    // commonjs require
    const { ImageEditor } = require('@toast-ui/vue-image-editor');
  • Using <script>

    If you just add javascript file to your html, you use toastui-vue-image-editor.js downloaded. Insert toastui-vue-image-editor.js with vue in your html like this:

    <script src=""></script>
    <script src="path/to/toastui-vue-image-editor.js"></script>
  • Using only Vue wrapper component (Single File Component)

    toastui-vue-image-editor.js has all of the tui.ImageEditor. If you only need vue wrapper component, you can use @toast-ui/vue-image-editor/src/ImageEditor.vue like this:

    import ImageEditor from '@toast-ui/vue-image-editor/src/ImageEditor.vue';


First insert <tui-image-editor> in the template or html. includeUi and options props are required.

<tui-image-editor :include-ui="useDefaultUI" :options="options"></tui-image-editor>

Load ImageEditor component and then add it to the components in your component or Vue instance.

import 'tui-color-picker/dist/tui-color-picker.css';
import 'tui-image-editor/dist/tui-image-editor.css';
import { ImageEditor } from '@toast-ui/vue-image-editor';

export default {
  components: {
    'tui-image-editor': ImageEditor,
  data() {
    return {
      useDefaultUI: true,
      options: {
        // for tui-image-editor component's "options" prop
        cssMaxWidth: 700,
        cssMaxHeight: 500,


You can use includeUi and options props. Example of each props is in the Getting Started.

    Type Required Default
    Boolean X true

    This prop can contained the includeUI prop in the option. You can see the default UI.

    Object X { cssMaxWidth: 700, cssMaxHeight: 500 }

    You can configure your image editor using options prop. For more information which properties can be set in options, see options of tui.image-editor.

    const drawingMode = this.$refs.tuiImageEditor.invoke('getDrawingMode');
    this.$refs.tuiImageEditor.invoke('loadImageFromURL', './sampleImage.png', 'My sample image');
    this.$refs.tuiImageEditor.invoke('startDrawingMode', 'FREE_DRAWING', {
      width: 10,
