In this article, we cover some of the most interesting Vue.js UI component libraries that you should look into first. They will certainly come in handy if you have a Vue application in the works!
Vuex is the official State Management tool for Vue. It acts as a centralized store for all the components in an application, with rules that ensure the state can only be changed in a predictable way. Vuex also integrates with Vue’s devtools extension to provide advanced features such as zero-config time-travel debugging and state snapshot export / import. https://github.com/vuejs/vuex
It’s impossible to have not have Vuetify on this list. As one of the most popular and well maintained Vue component libraries, it’s super flexible, yet powerful for all projects. Vuetify has over 100 component elements, comes with a responsive grid system, and full support for event handling. With weekly patches and continuous updates, Vuetify is likely to remain one of the most popular Vue libraries for several years.

Mint UI is a CSS and JS mobile component library for building mobile applications. It can help you create web pages in a cohesive style ever faster.

12. Cube UI
Cube UI is another very nice mobile user interface library which makes use of Vue.
13. Element UI
Element is another component library that has a bunch of different ready-to-use components. I really like the design of Element as it incorporates Flat-UI elements. When you first setup Element, its style looks appealing enough to be used at is, but its simplicity leaves a lot of room for customization and integration with other libraries.
This Bulma-based, lightweight is a great alternative if you want a simpler UI library for your project. While it comes with less components than some of the other libraries on this list, this is also one of its benefits. Keeping Buefy lightweight and only keeping the most important components like dropdowns, forms, etc. makes it one of the best options for developers who only want to use a library for a few key components.
15. Bootstrap Vue
Similar to VueStrap, Bootstrap Vue has Vue components that are just like the ones found in Bootstrap. Personally, I don’t really see a huge difference between VueStrap and Bootstrap Vue — both get the job done. I would recommend taking a lot at the docs for each of them yourself and seeing which syntax/style you like better.
Vuecidity is a component library for VueJS that is based off Material Design. With form elements, directives, layout options, and UI components, Vuecidity covers almost all of the bases. With support for Material Designs themes, Vuecidity is perfect for devs comfortable with Material Design as it serves as a Vue version.
iView is one of the most popular UI libraries because of its fantastic customization capabilities. It comes built with support for different fonts, icon sizes, element sizes, endless form options, and almost everything a developer would need to build a nice looking front-end.
Fish UI is a component library that has most of the same components that all of these have. It’s just done very well. I love the simplicity of their documentation and found it a breeze to implement this library into my project. The syntax is pretty intuitive, and I really like the fact that it comes with responsive tags — a components that not all of these libraries come with.
