Vue3-sfc-loader - Load .vue files directly from your html, without build step

I am pleased to announce that I am working on vue3-sfc-loader :

I will be happy to have your feedback !

short example:

  <div id="app"></div>
  <script src=""></script>
  <script src=""></script>

    const options = {
      moduleCache: {
        vue: Vue
      getFile(url) {
        return fetch(url).then(response => response.ok ? response.text() : Promise.reject(response));
      addStyle(styleStr) {
        const style = document.createElement('style');
        style.textContent = styleStr;
        const ref = document.head.getElementsByTagName('style')[0] || null;
        document.head.insertBefore(style, ref);

    const { loadModule } = window['vue3-sfc-loader'];
    const app = Vue.createApp({
      components: {
        'my-component': Vue.defineAsyncComponent( () => loadModule('./myComponent.vue', options) )
      template: '<my-component></my-component>'


My first impression is that it works very well for a small project where we wanted to integrate Vue in a Java / JSP / FreeMarker application, where your solution seems far easier than trying to add an NPM / Webpack environment to it, so thanks a lot for this! The nice thing is that whenever we do move on to a full Vue application, the Vue components that we’re creating now should be usable there as well.

It looks like the key part after loading the compiler module is to use it here


For interest, here is something from the Vue 2 docs which could be relevant here on what code looks like with and without the compiler.


If you need to compile templates on the client (e.g. passing a string to the template option, or mounting to an element using its in-DOM HTML as the template), you will need the compiler and thus the full build:

// this requires the compiler
new Vue({
  template: '<div>{{ hi }}</div>'

// this does not
new Vue({
  render (h) {
    return h('div', this.hi)

Now vue3-sfc-loader also supports Vue 2 !
