vue/custom-event-name-casing ​

enforce specific casing for custom event name

Define a style for custom event name casing for consistency purposes.

πŸ“– Rule Details ​

This rule aims to warn the custom event names other than the configured casing. (Default is camelCase.)

Vue 2 recommends using kebab-case for custom event names.

Event names will never be used as variable or property names in JavaScript, so there’s no reason to use camelCase or PascalCase. Additionally, v-on event listeners inside DOM templates will be automatically transformed to lowercase (due to HTML’s case-insensitivity), so v-on:myEvent would become v-on:myevent – making myEvent impossible to listen to.

For these reasons, we recommend you always use kebab-case for event names.

See Guide (for v2) - Custom Events for more details.

In Vue 3, using either camelCase or kebab-case for your custom event name does not limit its use in v-on. However, following JavaScript conventions, camelCase is more natural.

See Guide - Custom Events for more details.

This rule enforces camelCase by default.
