vee-validate is a template-based validation framework for Vue.js that allows you to validate inputs and display errors.

Being template-based you only need to specify for each input what kind of validators should be used when the value changes. The errors will be automatically generated with 40+ locales supported. Many rules are available out of the box.

This plugin is inspired by PHP Framework Laravel's validation.

vee-validate offers two styles to integrate form validation into your Vue.js apps.

Declarative Components

Higher-order components are better suited for most of your cases. Register the Field and Form components and create a simple required validator:

import { Field, Form } from 'vee-validate';

export default {
  components: {
  methods: {
    isRequired(value) {
      return value ? true : 'This field is required';

Then use the Form and Field components to render your form:

<Form v-slot="{ errors }">
  <Field name="field" :rules="isRequired" />

  <span>{{ errors.field }}</span>

The Field component renders an input of type text by default but you can control that

Composition API

If you want more fine grained control, you can use useField function to compose validation logic into your component:

import { useField } from 'vee-validate';

export default {
  setup() {
    // Validator function
    const isRequired = value => (value ? true : 'This field is required');
    const { value, errorMessage } = useField('field', isRequired);

    return {

Then in your template, use v-model to bind the value to your input and display the errors using errorMessage:

<input name="field" v-model="value" />
<span>{{ errorMessage }}</span>
