# Yarn / NPM

Install with yarn or npm:

# vue 2
yarn add vue-select

# vue 3
yarn add vue-select@beta

# or, using NPM
npm install vue-select

Then, import and register the component:

import Vue from 'vue'
import vSelect from 'vue-select'

Vue.component('v-select', vSelect)

The component itself does not include any CSS. You'll need to include it separately:

import 'vue-select/dist/vue-select.css';

# In the Browser

vue-select ships as an UMD module that is accessible in the browser. When loaded in the browser, you can access the component through the VueSelect.VueSelect global variable. You'll need to load Vue.js, vue-select JS & vue-select CSS.

<!-- include VueJS first -->
<script src="https://unpkg.com/vue@latest"></script>

<!-- use the latest vue-select release -->
<script src="https://unpkg.com/vue-select@latest"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/vue-select@latest/dist/vue-select.css">

<!-- or point to a specific vue-select release -->
<script src="https://unpkg.com/vue-select@3.0.0"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://unpkg.com/vue-select@3.0.0/dist/vue-select.css">

Then register the component in your javascript:

Vue.component('v-select', VueSelect.VueSelect);
