UMD Starter Kit - CDN install     

If you want to embed Quasar into your existing website project, integrating it in a progressive manner, then go for the UMD/Standalone (Unified Module Definition) version. The UMD starter kit will ask you some questions and will generate a simple HTML file that will show you how to use CDN to add Quasar:

$ vue init quasarframework/quasar-starter-kit-umd <folder_name>

And you’re done. Inspect index.html file that was created in the new folder and learn how you can embed Quasar. Notice the <style> and <script> tags and their order.

Notice that as opposed to the Main Starter Kit, you don’t need to import anything. All components, directives and Quasar plugins are ready to be used out of the box.

However, the disadvantage is that you won’t benefit from the top notch development experience provided by Quasar CLI – which allows you to simultaneously develop and build SPA, PWA, Mobile and Electron Apps.

You can fork and use these links for reporting issues on Github too:

Material ThemeiOS Theme

These links (obviously) use the Quasar UMD version.

Quasar Global Object

When you embed Quasar UMD into a webpage you’ll get injected a Quasar global Object:

Quasar = {
theme: 'mat', // or 'ios', based on the theme you are using from CDN
// -- must match both .js and .css CDN links to point to same theme

// if you want to extend Quasar's components or directives

// if you want to change current icon set or Quasar I18n language
// (must include CDN links so they are available first!)


So, after you figured out the CDN links that you need to embed into your webpages (hopefully you’ve inspected the project folder created by UMD Starter Kit), now it’s time to use Quasar.

You’ll notice that all the Quasar Components, Quasar Directives and Quasar Plugins have an installation section at the top of their pages. When using UMD, you can skip this section, as it is intended only for when your project is generated from the Main Starter Kit.

By using the UMD version, you got all components, directives and Quasar plugins already installed for you. You just need to start using them.

Do not use self closing tags with UMD version:
You will notice that you won’t be able to use the self-closing tag form of any of the components. You must close all components tags.

<!-- In docs, but for Main Starter Kit usage -->
<q-btn label="My Button" />
<!-- ^^^ can't use it like this on UMD -->

<!-- Instead, include a self-closing tag too: -->
<q-btn label="My Button"></q-btn>

Quasar Components

An example. No need to install any component in UMD version.

<q-btn label="My Button"></q-btn>

Quasar Directives

An example. No need to install any directives in UMD version.

<div v-ripple>...</div>

Quasar Plugins

An example. No need to install any plugins in UMD version.


Quasar Utils

An example.


Changing Quasar Icon Set

Assuming you have already included the CDN link to your favorite Quasar Icon Set (unless you’re using Material Icons which is used by default), you can then tell Quasar to use it:


Changing Quasar I18n Language

Assuming you have already included the CDN link to your desired Quasar I18n Language (unless you want “en-us” language pack which is used by default), you can then tell Quasar to use it:

// example setting German language,
// using ISO 2 letter code:

// example setting Portuguese (Brazil) language:

The list of available languages can be found on Github. If your desired language pack is not available yet, you can help by providing a PR. We welcome any languages!
