  • I’m seeing $attrs is readonly and/or $listeners is readonly in the console

    Vuetify utilizes Typescript and currently must import and extend the Vue object. This has the potential in some applications to generate a warning messages. There is currently an ongoing GitHub discussion with potential work-arounds in a variety of use-cases.

  • I’m seeing Error in ./node_modules/vuetify/src/dir/file.js Module parse failed: Unexpected token (<lineno>:<characterno>) in the terminal.

    If you’re using an IDE, such as IntelliJ IDEA or WebStorm, it will often add automatic imports pointing to the vuetify/src directory for components you use. Change the import statement path from vuetify/src to vuetify/lib.

  • How do I extend Vuetify components?

    Vuetify components are easily extendable by importing it and using the extends option in vue. Codepen Example

// src/components/ActivateBtn
import { VBtn } from 'vuetify/lib'

export default {
  extends: VBtn,

  methods: {
    // Here we overwrite the genContent method of VBtn
    // to override the default genContent method
    genContent() {
      return this.$createElement('div', {
        staticClass: 'v-btn__contents'
      }, [
        'Activate ',

  • My application does not look correct.

    Vuetify requires the use of the v-app component. It should wrap your entire application and is the center point for much of the framework functionality including themes. Ensure that you are following the proper markup documented in the Application page.

  • Menu/Dialog/Navigation drawer are not opening properly.

    Ensure that your components are wrapped with a v-app element. If you are using an element to activate the component that is not placed into the activator slot, ensure that you stop propagation of the click event. These components utilize the v-outside-click directive and will immediately close.

  • The scrollbar is showing even though my content is not overflowing vertically.

    Vuetify uses a slightly modified version of ress reset which by default turns on the html scrollbar to normalize behavior between browsers. This is a design choice and has been debated numerous times. There are pros and cons to having and not having it and as of now, the vote is in favor of leaving it as is. If you wish to disable this functionality, simply add html { overflow-y: auto } to your style file. Find more information on the CSS Reset page.

  • How do I vertically center content?

    Apply the fill-height prop to v-container. This helper class normally only adds height: 100%, but for the container, it also looks for a child v-layout and applies the needed classes to vertically center the content.

  • My / link is active when I’m on /home page.

    Add the exact to the link that points to absolute /. For more information on this, you can visit the official Vue router documentation.

  • Why isn’t my application responsive on mobile devices?

    Ensure that you have the proper meta tags inside of the <head> section of your index.html.

<!-- public/index.html -->
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, user-scalable=no, minimal-ui">

  • How do I use Font Awesome, Material Design Icons or Material Icons?

    You can find more information in our icon guide.

  • Why does <v-dialog> close immediately after clicking the button?

    When not using the activator slot for v-menu and v-dialog for example, you must manually stop the propagation of the click event. To do this, simply add the .stop modifier to the click event.

<!-- Vue Component -->
    <v-dialog v-model="dialog">

    <v-btn @click.stop="dialog = true">
      Open Dialog

  export default {
    data: () => ({
      dialog: false,

  • SCRIPT5022: Expected identifier, string or number

    In order to support modern mode in vue-cli-3, vuetify/lib is not transpiled. You must tell vue-cli to transpile the vuetify package. This is configured automatically when installing the Vuetify cli plugin. If you are using an older version, simply add ‘vuetify’ to the transpileDependencies array in vue.config.js.

  • When adding typescript - Error: Could not find a declaration file for module 'vuetify/lib’

    Update the compilerOptions key in tsconfig.json with the vuetify type:

// tsconfig.json
  "compilerOptions": {
    "types": ["vuetify"]
