Import inside the script tag.

import GlitchedWriter from 'vue-glitched-writer'

Or use Skypack to import without installing the package.

import GlitchedWriter from ''


Declare component

    export default {
        components: {

Animate text instantly after load

Will animate blank -> passed text property

<glitched-writer text="Your Content" appear />

Write text dynamically

Animate each time the txt prop changes. Previous text -> new text

<glitched-writer :text="text" />

Queue Writing

If you want to write texts for prepared array, then you can pass that array to as text and glitched writer will turn it into a working queue.

data() {
   return {
      phrases: [
                'Hello and Welcome',
                'What is this?!',
                'It appears i\'m in some queue...',
<glitched-writer :text="phrases" />

<!-- add prop "queue" to controll the queue -->
      interval: 1200, // [ms]
      loop: true
      // false -> stop (default)
      // true -> continue looping
      // Function -> stop and fire the function.
      // Number -> wait number ms and continue looping

Using Presets

List of available presets.

<glitched-writer text="Your Text" preset="zalgo" />

<!-- Passing options prop will extend the preset -->
<glitched-writer text="Your Text" preset="zalgo" :options="{ html: true }" />

Custom Options

See Glitched Writer's Option List.

Passing options object to component.

   data() {
      return {
         text: 'Your Text',
         options: {
            html: true,
            letterize: true,
            steps: [0, 10],
            delay: [500, 2000],
            glyphs: 'QWERTYUIOPASDFGHJKLZXCVBNM!@#$%^&*()1234567890'
<glitched-writer :text="text" :options="options" />

Changing options later

When changing options object (passed to the component), you need to remember to reassign the object property, instead of modifying it.

   methods: {
         // RIGHT
         this.options = {
            steps: [2, 15],
            html: false,

         // WRONG: this.options.steps = [2, 15]

Pausing the animation

The "pause" boolean property is responsible for programatic pausing. Simply set "pause" property to true if you want the animation to stop.

data() {
   return {
      pause: true
<glitched-writer :text="text" :pause="pause" />

Component Events

Glitched Writer emits 3 events:

  • start - when writer starts writing
  • step - on every step of writing process
  • finish - when writer finishes writing
<glitched-writer @start="method" @step="callback" @finish="callback" />
   methods: {
      callback(text, data){
         console.log(text, data.options)

// WriterDataResponse: {
// 	string: string
// 	writer: GlitchedWriter
// 	options: Options
// 	state: State
// 	status?: 'ERROR' | 'SUCCESS'
// 	message?: string
// 	error?: any
// }

Accessing GlitchedWriter Instance

If you want to do something custom with the component, you can use GlitchedWriter class instance attached to the html element.

<glitched-writer :text="text" ref="el" />
