Create a Flashcard App with Vue 3 and JavaScript

Vue 3 is the latest version of the easy to use Vue JavaScript framework that lets us create front end apps.

In this article, we’ll look at how to create a flashcard app with Vue 3 and JavaScript.

Create the Project

We can create the Vue project with Vue CLI.

To install it, we run:

npm install -g @vue/cli

with NPM or:

yarn global add @vue/cli

with Yarn.

Then we run:

vue create flashcard

and select all the default options to create the project.

We also need the uuid package to let us generate unique IDs for our grocery list items.

To do this, we run:

npm i uuid

Create the Flashcard App

To create the flashcard app, we write:

  <form @submit.prevent="add">
      <input v-model="item.question" />
      <input v-model="item.answer" />
    <button type="submit">submit</button>
  <div v-for="(item, index) of items" :key="">
    <p>{{ item.question }}</p>
    <p>{{ item.answer }}</p>
    <button @click="deleteItem(index)">delete</button>

import { v4 as uuidv4 } from "uuid";
export default {
  name: "App",
  data() {
    return {
      item: {
        question: "",
        answer: "",
      items: [],
  methods: {
    add() {
        id: uuidv4(),
      this.item = {};
    deleteItem(index) {
      this.items.splice(index, 1);

In the template, we have the form to let us enter questions answers into the form.

v-model binds to the entered question and answer to item.question and item.answer reactive properties.

The submit button triggers the submit event which runs the add method.

The prevent modifier stops the default server-side submit behavior.

We use v-for to render the items in the items reactive property.

We render the item.question and item.answer values from the object entry.

And we have a button to let us delete the item with the deleteItem method.

deleteItem takes the index of the item to delete.

The key prop lets us set the unique ID for the item so that Vue 3 can keep track of the rendered array items properly.

The data method returns an object with the initial values of the reactive properties.

The add method calls push with an object to add an item to the array.

We merge the id with the other this.item properties to form the final object before pushing it.

deleteItem calls splice with the index and 1 to delete an item with the given index and deletes 1 item only.

Now we see that the list is displayed when we type in something and click submit.


We can create our own flashcard app easily with Vue 3 and JavaScript.
