Vue.js Event Hub

Matestack offers an event hub, which can be used to communicate between components.

Emitting events

app/matestack/components/some_component.js

MatestackUiCore.Vue.component('some-component', {
mixins: [MatestackUiCore.componentMixin],
data() {
return {}
},
mounted(){
MatestackUiCore.matestackEventHub.$emit("some-event", { some: "optional data" })
}
})

Use MatestackUiCore.matestackEventHub.$emit(EVENT_NAME, OPTIONAL PAYLOAD)

Receiving events

app/matestack/components/some_component.js

MatestackUiCore.Vue.component('some-component', {
mixins: [MatestackUiCore.componentMixin],
data() {
return {}
},
methods: {
reactToEvent(payload){
console.log(payload)
}
},
mounted(){
MatestackUiCore.matestackEventHub.$on("some-event", this.reactToEvent)
},
beforeDestroy: function() {
matestackEventHub.$off("some-event", this.reactToEvent)
}
})

Make sure to cancel the event listener within the beforeDestroy hook!
