Vue.js in Gitpod

To work with Vue.js in Gitpod, you will need to properly configure your repository. Here is how to do it.

Example Repositories

Here are a few Vue.js example projects that are already automated with Gitpod:

Repository Description Try it
vuepress Minimalistic Vue-powered static site generator Open in Gitpod
postwoman A free, fast and beautiful API request builder (web alternative to Postman) Open in Gitpod Nuxt.js Documentation Website (Universal Vue.js Application built with Nuxt.js) Open in Gitpod


To install the Vue.js command-line interface in your current workspace run the following

npm i -g vue-cli

To install globally across all workspaces add the following to your .gitpod.Dockerfile

RUN npm i -g vue-cli

Please note: If you don’t already have one please run gp init which should generate two files .gitpod.yml and .gitpod.Dockerfile

VSCode Extensions


Vetur extension

Vetur provides syntax highlighting, snippets, Emmet support, linting/error checking, auto-formatting, and auto-complete for Vue files.

To add this extension to your repository add the following to your .gitpod.yml

    - octref.vetur@0.23.0:TEzauMObB6f3i2JqlvrOpA==

For projects that already have a .gitpod.yml, you can skip the first part and just add the provided snippet.
