Each component must include two files: vuecomponents/mycomponents

  • partials/_mycomponents.php
  • assets/js/mycomponents.js

The optional CSS file is loaded automatically if presented: vuecomponents/mycomponents

Components can have subcomponents. Each subcomponent must be presented with a JavaScript file and partial.
