Like jQuery’s slideUp / slideDown, but for Vue!



npm i vue-slide-up-down

Usage with Webpack or other module bundlers:

import SlideUpDown from 'vue-slide-up-down'
// or
const SlideUpDown = require('vue-slide-up-down')

Vue.component('slide-up-down', SlideUpDown)

Or use the UMD build directly in your browser (the component is provided as window.VueSlideUpDown).

<script type="text/javascript">
  Vue.component('slide-up-down', VueSlideUpDown)


The component takes four props:

  • active (Boolean, required): Whether to show the component (true) or not (false)
  • duration (Number, optional): How long the animation is supposed to be, in milliseconds. Defaults to 500.
  • tag (String, optional): Which HTML tag to use for the wrapper element. Defaults to div.
  • use-hidden (Boolean, optional): Whether to apply the “hidden” attribute to the element when closed. Defaults to true. This hides the component from the screen and from assistive devices. The internal elements of the component are completely invisible, and cannot be focused on (by a keyboard or assistive device). (This is probably what you want!) If you need, set this property to false to not use the hidden attribute. This could be used if you wanted to have a min-height requirement on your component. ⚠️ Note that this can create accessibility issues, specifically for users with a keyboard or screen reader. Even though the component may appear hidden, focusable elements within the component are still able to be accessed through keyboard navigation.

<div class="MyContent">
  <h1>Always show this</h1>

  <slide-up-down :active="active" :duration="1000">
    Only show this if "active” is true

The component emits four Vue events:

  • open-start
  • open-end
  • close-start
  • close-end
<slide-up-down @close-end="console.log('done closing!')" />

Custom transition-timing-function

If you want to use a different timing function, add some CSS for your <slide-up-down> element. (See demo/index.html for a full example.)

  .wobbly-accordion {
    transition-timing-function: cubic-bezier(0.195, 1.65, 0.435, -0.6);

<slide-up-down class="wobbly-accordion">
