Compatibility

Element Plus can run on browsers that supports ES2018 and ResizeObserver. If you really need to support outdated browsers, please add Babel and Polyfill yourself.

Since Vue 3 no longer supports IE11, Element Plus does not support IE either.

Import in Browser

Import Element Plus through browser HTML tags directly, and use global variable ElementPlus.

According to different CDN providers, there are different introduction methods. Here we use unpkg and jsDelivr as example. You can also use other CDN providers.

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="//unpkg.com/element-plus/dist/index.css" />
  <!-- Import Vue 3 -->
  <script src="//unpkg.com/vue@next"></script>
  <!-- Import component library -->
  <script src="//unpkg.com/element-plus"></script>
</head>

jsDelivr

<head>
  <!-- Import style -->

    rel="stylesheet"
    href="//cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/element-plus/dist/index.css"
  />

  <script src="//cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/vue@next"></script>
  <!-- Import component library -->

TIP

We recommend using CDN to import Element Plus users to lock the version on the link address, so as not to be affected by incompatible updates when Element Plus is upgraded in the future. Please check unpkg.com for the method to lock the version.
