About

We needed a component to show a privacy banners on pages - came across the awesome vue-cookie-law by apertureless and it was almost what was needed, except we needed to track the option of an opt-out/decline which seemed a bit out of scope for that project - so vue-cookie-accept-decline is the result.

The big difference here is that vue-cookie-accept-decline allows the user to decline the text on the banner - this is important because you may want to not uses cookies in your app if they have declined the oppurtunity to be tracked.

When the decline or accept buttons are clicked, they will emit the events clickedAccept and clickedDeclined respectively. Also, on creation, the component will emit a status event with a value of the current setting, null for nothing set, accept for an accepted banner, and decline for a declined banner. You can listen to this event on the component and do something like disable cookies if you see they have declined the banner.

Usage Example

import VueCookieAcceptDecline from 'vue-cookie-accept-decline'
Vue.component('vue-cookie-accept-decline', VueCookieAcceptDecline)
<vue-cookie-accept-decline
    :debug="false"
    :position="'bottom'"
    :transitionName="'slideFromBottom'"
    @status="cookieStatus"
    @clickedAccept="cookieClickedAccept"
    @clickedDecline="cookieClickedDecline">
