Vuejs EventBus – Send Data Between Components

Vue.js

In this tutorial, you learn how to share data between components using EventBus in Vuejs.

It’s just a publish – subscribe pattern.

What that means is… we can publish a piece of data from one component and make it available to any other components to subscribe into to receive data.

When you publish data using $Eventbus, it becomes global so it can be accessible in any part of the application.

Create An EventBus Object

Create a new file called EventBus.js inside the src directory

import Vue from 'vue';
export const EventBus = new Vue();

Send Data Using $emit Event

Import EventBus in the component that you want to send data from.

import {EventBus} from “@/EventBus”; 

Send Data Using $emit event wherever makes sense depends on your application.

EventBus.$emit("name", "Raja Tamil");

The $emit() method takes two arguments…

1. Custom event name in this case name and

2. The actual data that we want to send…in this case Raja Tamil.

Receive Data Using $on Event

Import EventBus in the component that you want to receive data to.

import {EventBus} from “@/EventBus”; 

Receive Data Using $on event inside mounted() function

EventBus.$on("name", data => {
 console.log(data); // Raja Tamil
})
