Directives are special attributes with the v- prefix. A directive’s job is to reactively apply side effects to the DOM when the value of its expression changes. Vue.js provides a wide range of directives for you to use. You have probably already used the v-if, v-repeat, v-model and v-show directives.
In this article, I am going to explain the parts of a directive and what is available to use. Then I will show you how to create a wide range of custom directives so that you can apply your programming needs directly to DOM elements. So let’s get started discussing what is included with a directive.

The most basic custom directive only has a name. It does not accept any arguments nor does it have any modifiers. Without passing a value, this would not be very flexible, but you could still have some piece of functionality of the DOM element.
If you create websites, chances are you have been asked to create a horizontal scrolling component. It is extremely easy to implement this using just a few lines of Flexbox. Let me show you how.
We need to create a container that will contain all the images that we want to scroll. Here is the code:
¡Hola. Bonjour. Ciao. 你好. Here is how you add internationalization to Vue.
My company has plants in 37 countries. We write applications for the employees at these plants. Our application has to be translated into their native language. You can easily add internationalization to your Vue application. Let me show you how to add internationalization to the default Vue application.
Creating Our Application
We will be creating an application using the Vue CLI. If you do not have it installed you can install it with this command:
npm install @vue/cli -g
-g flag will install the Vue CLI globally. Now that we have the CLI installed we can create a new application. Enter this command to create the application:
vue create vue-internationalization
The Vue CLI will prompt you to pick a preset. You have the option of selecting the default preset or manually selecting features. I chose
