Custom classes for the colors

By default, Vuestic UI creates custom classes for coloring the text and background colors of elements relative to the global color configuration. To expand the number of generated classes, you need to add the colorsClasses configuration to the GlobalConfig.

The values for colorVariableName and colorValue are taken from the global color config.

Let's create our config

We need to update the colors classes configuration in the our global configuration. The colors classes are an array of objects with class names and CSS properties. For example:

import { createApp } from 'vue'
import { createVuestic } from 'vuestic-ui'
import 'vuestic-ui/css'

    config: {
      colors: { /*...*/ },
      colorsClasses: [
          prefix: 'custom',
          property: ['border-color', 'color'],
          prefix: 'brand',
          property: 'background',

The example above shows us the ColorsClassesConfig configuration structure. It's important to note that styleProperty can take either a string or an array of strings as its value.

An example of using the classes we created:

Now I'm have a "primary" color on the borders and text colors

I have a "warning" background
