Create FirstComponent.vue and import it into App.js

Create the new component in the src/components/ components folder. the component name is FirstComponent.vue and imported into the App.js file:

App.js

<template>
  <div id="app">
    <FirstComponent />
  </div>
</template>

<script>
import FirstComponent from "./components/FirstComponent.vue";
export default {
  name: "App",
  components: {
    FirstComponent,
  },
};
</script>

<style>
#app {
  font-family: Avenir, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
  -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
  -moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;
  text-align: center;
  color: #2c3e50;
  margin-top: 60px;
}
</style>

Add color picker

Just as mentioned above, Now let’s start today’s tutorial, To set the color picker we are going to use the b-form-input component. For the color picker, we are going to use the type props. The b-form-input defaults to a text input, But there are different supported native browser HTML5 types which are text, password, email, number, URL, tel, search, date, DateTime, DateTime-local, month, week, time, range or color.

There is an alternative option for using to color picker that is:

  1. vue-colorpicker
  2. Verte
  3. v-color

For the tutorial, we are going to use the props type='color' with color type. Let’s understand through the example:

FirstComponent.vue

<template>
  <b-container fluid>
    <b-row>
      <b-col sm="6">
        <b-form-input type="color"></b-form-input>
      </b-col>
    </b-row>
  </b-container>
</template>

<script>

export default {
  name: "FirstComponent",
};
</script>

For now, let’s check the output.
