Kongponents is a Vue component library of frequently needed UI elements. They were developed to solve Kong's application needs, but are generic enough to use in any web application.

# Installation

To begin using Kongponents, you must first import the base @kongponents/styles package. Read more about the style guide usage.

Next, you will need to install each desired component. You can install multiple components at once, or one at a time as needed.

$ yarn add @kongponents/styles @kongponents/kbutton

# or

$ npm install @kongponents/styles @kongponents/kbutton

# Transpile dependencies

You will likely need to transpile all of the @kongponents packages in your project. If your project already has a vue.config.js file, just add the following transpileDependencies entry

// vue.config.js

module.exports = {
  transpileDependencies: [

If your project does not have a vue.config.js file and instead uses webpack config files, you can add a loader rule (for example, for babel-loader) similar to the following (only showing the relevant entries)

// webpack.config.js

module.exports = (env) => {
  return {
    module: {
      loaders: [
        // transpile @kongponents packages
          test: /\.js$/,
          include: /(node_modules)\/(@kongponents)/,
          loader: 'babel-loader',
        // process all .js files, but ignore all other node_modules not listed above
          test: /\.js$/,
          exclude: /(node_modules)/,
          loader: 'babel-loader'

# Raw loader

The KIcon component, utilized within many other components, imports .svg files directly, so a loader is needed in order to render these in your application such as the webpack raw-loader.

Start by installing raw-loader

yarn add --dev raw-loader

To utilize the loader, in your vue.config.js file, add the following inside chainWebpack

module.exports = {
  chainWebpack: (config) => {
    // SVG Loader
    // With the following SVG rules, svg files may be imported from packages, Vue, etc. normally.
    // If referencing a SVG file from src/assets/img (local) you MUST add '.svg?local' suffix to the file path
    // for the webpack loader to properly render the file.

    const svgRule = config.module.rule('svg')

        limit: 10000,
        name: 'img/[name].[hash:7].[ext]'

If you need to reference local SVG files (e.g. image assets for CSS background images) you will need to add the suffix ?local to the end of the image filename. For example:

<img src="/path/to/img/picture.svg?local">

  .image {
    background-image: url('../img/picture.svg?local');

# CSS variables

If you choose to utilize any of the CSS custom properties (variables) included in the @kongponents packages and your project uses PostCSS, you will likely need use the postcss-custom-properties PostCSS plugin so that the variables are preserved in their original form.

$ yarn add postcss-custom-properties --dev

# or

$ npm install postcss-custom-properties --save-dev

Next, add a postcss.config.js file to your project with the following content

// postcss.config.js

module.exports = () => ({
  plugins: {
    'postcss-custom-properties': {
      preserve: true

# Usage

You can import and register components globally (e.g. in your Vue entry file, like main.js)

import KButton from '@kongponents/kbutton';
Vue.component('KButton', KButton);

Or locally inside another component

import KButton from '@kongponents/kbutton';
export default {
  components: { KButton },

# Without Bundle System

You can also use Kongponents in a project where there is no build system as long as Vue is included on the page. Each Kongponent is packaged as a umd.js file, so as long as you have loaded Vue in your project the Kongponent will work as intended.


You must import the CSS from the @kongponents/styles package along with Vue.
