Usage with Vue 3

    <Toggle v-model="value" />

  import Toggle from '@vueform/toggle'

  export default {
    components: {
    data() {
      return {
        value: true

<style src="@vueform/toggle/themes/default.css"></style>

Using with Vue 2

When using Vue 2 install @vue/composition-api via npm/yarn first:

npm i @vue/composition-api --save-dev

Then install the plugin for Vue:

import Vue from 'vue'
import VueCompositionAPI from '@vue/composition-api'


After that make sure to change the imported Toggle module to:

import Toggle from '@vueform/toggle/dist/toggle.vue2.js'

Using with Nuxt.js

First you need install @nuxtjs/composition-api:

npm i @nuxtjs/composition-api --save-dev

Then you need to enable it as a module in nuxt.config.js:

  buildModules: [

After that make sure to change the imported module to Vue 2 version of Toggle, as Nuxt.js still depends on that:

import Toggle from '@vueform/toggle/dist/toggle.vue2.js'

Styling with CSS vars

The following CSS variables can be used to customize the toggle button when using default.css:

--toggle-width: 3rem;
--toggle-height: 1.25rem;
--toggle-border: 0.125rem;
--toggle-font-size: 0.75rem;
--toggle-duration: 150ms;
--toggle-bg-on: #10b981;
--toggle-bg-off: #e5e7eb;
--toggle-bg-on-disabled: #d1d5db;
--toggle-bg-off-disabled: #e5e7eb;
--toggle-border-on: #10b981;
--toggle-border-off: #e5e7eb;
--toggle-border-on-disabled: #d1d5db;
--toggle-border-off-disabled: #e5e7eb;
--toggle-text-on: #ffffff;
--toggle-text-off: #374151;
--toggle-text-on-disabled: #9ca3af;
--toggle-text-off-disabled: #9ca3af;
--toggle-handle-enabled: #ffffff;
--toggle-handle-disabled: #f3f4f6;

You might override them globally:

:root {
  --toggle-bg-on: red;
  --toggle-border-on: red;

Or on an instance level:

<Toggle v-model="value" class="my-toggle-red" />
<Toggle v-model="value" class="my-toggle-blue" />
.my-toggle-red {
  --toggle-bg-on: red;
  --toggle-border-on: red;

.my-toggle-blue {
  --toggle-bg-on: blue;
  --toggle-border-on: blue;

Styling with Tailwind CSS

The Toggle component accepts a classes property where you can override default class names. In this case you don't need to required default.css. Here's a default styling for Tailwind CSS:

<Toggle v-model="value" :classes="{
  container: 'inline-block',
  toggle: 'flex w-12 h-5 rounded-full relative cursor-pointer transition items-center box-content border-2 text-xs leading-none',
  toggleOn: 'bg-green-500 border-green-500 justify-start text-white',
  toggleOff: 'bg-gray-200 border-gray-200 justify-end text-gray-700',
  toggleOnDisabled: 'bg-gray-300 border-gray-300 justify-start text-gray-400 cursor-not-allowed',
  toggleOffDisabled: 'bg-gray-200 border-gray-200 justify-end text-gray-400 cursor-not-allowed',
  handle: 'inline-block bg-white w-5 h-5 top-0 rounded-full absolute transition-all',
  handleOn: 'left-full transform -translate-x-full',
  handleOff: 'left-0',
  handleOnDisabled: 'bg-gray-100 left-full transform -translate-x-full',
  handleOffDisabled: 'bg-gray-100 left-0',
  label: 'text-center w-8 border-box whitespace-nowrap select-none',
}" />

If the button is enabled and on the toggle and toggleOn classes will be added to the toggle div:
flex w-12 h-5 rounded-full relative cursor-pointer transition items-center box-content border-2 text-xs leading-none bg-green-500 border-green-500 justify-start text-white

Likewise if the the button is disabled and on the toggle and toggleOnDisabled classes will be added:
flex w-12 h-5 rounded-full relative cursor-pointer transition items-center box-content border-2 text-xs leading-none bg-gray-300 border-gray-300 justify-start text-gray-400 cursor-not-allowed

The same is true off states and handle.

This way you can customize the parts of the toggle button without having to worry about over-riding the same type of utility classes, like backgrounds or text colors.


By default the on and off labels are being read by the screenreaders. If you provide the labelledby property that will be read instead of the labels. You might also add a describedby property to provide further description.

  <label id="toggle-label">Turn on notifications</label>
  <Toggle v-model="value" labelledby="toggle-label" describedby="toggle-description" />
<small id="toggle-description">Turn this on if you'd like to receive in-app notifications.</small>
