A dependency-free simple, flexible and smooth Vue.js plugin to create beautiful circle progress bars, implemented with SVG. Start creating circles in three steps:

// install
npm i vue-ellipse-progress@next
// initialize
import veProgress from "vue-ellipse-progress";
// use
<ve-progress :progress="50"/>

❕ Take a look at some interesting examples on the Demo page

Component demo

Installation options

Use your package manager or CDN to install and initialize the component.


Installation via npm:

npm i vue-ellipse-progress@next

After the installation you have the choice to initialize the component as a plugin or to import it directly.

Initialize as Plugin

Import and initialize the component in your main.js. After initialization, the component is available as <ve-progress/>. You can also define a custom name:

import { createApp } from "vue";
import veProgress from "vue-ellipse-progress";
// createApp(App).use(veProgress, "vep"); define custom name

Import component

You also have the option to import the component directly:

import { VeProgress } from "vue-ellipse-progress";


To use the component without a build tool you can customize and get the veprogress.umd.min.js file from JSDelivr. Just add the following line to your HTML and initialize the component as plugin:

<script src=""></script>


After you have initialized the component, you are ready to create your circles:

  line-mode="in 10"
  line-position="out 10"
  :legend-formatter="({currentValue}) => new Intl.NumberFormat('de-DE').format(currentValue)"
  dash="60 0.9"
  animation="reverse 700 400"
  :loader="{ color: 'green' }"                    
  dot="10 blue"
  <span slot="legend">/200</span>
  <p slot="legend-caption">GOOD JOB</p>


The progress is the only required property, and you are ready to go with just following line:

<ve-progress :progress="progress"/>

Also make sure to check slot options

  • progress

Animated: ✔️

Is any Number in range [-100, 100] (including decimals). This property defines the filled area from progress circle line in percent and is shown by default as the legend in the middle of the circle. progress is animated and counts up or down on any value changes with duration defined in animation.duration property. Set a negative value to fill the progress line counterclockwise. Alternatively reverse can be used.

Example: 📜
<ve-progress :progress="myProgress" />
this.myProgress = 55.5;
this.myProgress = this.tasksDone * 100 / maxTasks; // the percentage of done tasks

❗ The progress is always used to fill the progress circle line, it should be always in the range [-100, 100] and not valid Numbers lead to noData state. For customization purpose please use legend and take a look at legendFormatter.

❗ If legend is defined the progress will not be displayed as circle legend.

  • size

Animated: ✔️

Is any number >=0. It defines the width and height of the circle in pixel. The calculation of the circumference of the circle depends on the properties lineMode, thickness, emptyThickness and dot, so the circle never exceeds the size value!

❗ Check lineMode property to understand how the progress circle behaves depending on the line mode and offset.

  • line

Animated: ✔️

Is a String value from round | square | butt. Defines the progress circle line cap. Internally the CSS property stroke-linecap is used.

Example: 📜
<ve-progress line="round" />

  • thickness

Animated: ✔️

Is a Number >=0 or a String that defines the progress line thickness. If you set the value in percent as String, the thickness will be calculated in relation to size.

Example: 📜
<ve-progress :thickness="10" />
<ve-progress thickness="5%" />

  • emptyThickness

Animated: ✔️

Is a Number >=0 or a String. It defines the empty circle line thickness. If you set the value in percent, thickness will be calculated in relation to size.

  • lineMode

Animated: ✔️

Descriptive string in form "mode [offset]" that defines, how the progress line is aligned in relation to empty line. The first value ist the mode and the optional second is the offset. You can understand the modes as the presets that help you to align lines as you want to.

  • mode:

    • center: this is the default value and both lines are aligned at the baseline (centered).

    • in: the progress line is inside the empty line

    • in-over: the progress line is both inside the empty circle and overlaps the empty line

    • out: the progress line is outside the empty line

    • out-over: the progress line is both outside the empty circle and overlaps the empty line

    • bottom: the progress line is aligned at the bottom of the empty line

    • top: the progress line is aligned at the top of the empty line

  • offset: is any negative or positive Number and defines the distance between the progress and empty lines. It can be only combined with the in and out modes

Example: 📜

Let's take a look at few examples:

line-mode="in 10"line-mode="in 10"line-mode="out 10"line-mode="out 15"

In general, any positioning can already be achieved with values in and out in a combination with certain offset. The modes, however, act like presets, which reduce the effort for the manual calculations.

  • linePosition

Animated: ✔️

Descriptive string in form "mode [offset]" that defines how the progress line is aligned in relation to the circle fill area. Available modes are center, in and out. Additionally, with the out mode you can provide an offset value as any Number. In general, this prop makes it possible to mimic the SVG2 stroke-aligment, which is currently not supported in any browser.

Example: 📜

The following examples visualize the modes differences:

line-position="center"line-position="out"line-position="out 20"line-position="in"

  • emptyLinePosition

Animated: ✔️

Descriptive string in form "mode [offset]" that defines how the empty line is aligned in relation to the empty circle fill area. The usage is similar to linePosition.

  • color

Animated: ✔️

Defines the color of progress circle line. Is any CSS color like #123 or lime or an object that defines the gradient.

  • color="#3f79ff" - as String

  • :color="{ colors [, radial ]}" - as Object

    • radial - default false. Boolean that defines, whether the gradient is radial or linear
    • colors - array that contains the gradient colors as objects { color: "#6546f7", offset: "10" [, opacity: 1] }
Example: 📜
<ve-progress :color="gradient" />

gradient: {
    radial: false,
    colors: [
        color: '#6546f7',
        offset: "0",
        opacity: '1',
        color: 'lime',
        offset: "100",
        opacity: '0.6',
gradient demo
  • colorFill

Animated: ✔️

Defines the fill color of the progress circle. Takes the same value as color

  • emptyColor

Animated: ✔️

Defines the color of the empty circle line. Takes the same value as color

  • emptyColorFill

Animated: ✔️

Defines the fill color of the empty circle. Takes the same value as color

  • hideLegend

Boolean that defines whether the legend value (progress or legend) is hidden.

  • legend

Animated: ✔️

Is any Number or String. Use this property if you want to show the progress value as the legend of the circle that is not in the range [-100, 100]. If defined, legend will replace progress as the circle legend! Defining the value as string you can apply very simple formatting with "." or "," as delimiter to set initial counter placeholder (e.g "0045.00"). Apart from this the value must generally be a valid JavaScript Number. For more customization possibilities please use legendFormatter or scoped slot.

Example: 📜

Let's say you need to display a rating from 0 to 5 of a product with 3.5 stars. Setting the progress to 3.5 will fill the circle to 3.5 percent, and this is not what we need, since we want to display the percentage of 5 as progress. At this point we need an additional property legend. We can show the product rating like in the following example:

<ve-progress :progress="progress" :legend="rating" />
this.rating = 3.5;
this.progress = this.rating * 100 / 5; // the rating percentage

Now you can display custom progress value that still animated and circle progress fills properly!

<ve-progress legend="0100,450" /> // counts up from "0000,000"

❗ note that legend replaces progress as circle legend.

  • legendFormatter

Is a Function that must return your custom formatted value. The function takes counter properties object as argument and is called on every counter tick. Here the formatting of legend or progress is completely up to you and you have the full freedom to adjust the presentation to your needs. The function can return any value, even HTML.

❕ alternatively you can use scoped slot for custom formatting.

Example: 📜

The function takes counter properties Object as argument that you can use to define custom formatting. currentValue is the most relevant value, as it is the actual value at specific counter tick. The return value will be displayed as the legend of the circle.

const myFormatter = ({ currentValue, ...otherProps }) => {
  return new Intl.NumberFormat("de-DE", { style: "currency", currency: "EUR" }).format(currentValue); 

The function can also return HTML:

const myFormatter = ({ currentValue }) => {
     return `
        <span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 1.6rem">${new Intl.NumberFormat("de-DE").format(currentValue)}</span>

Finally, set your formatter as prop:

<ve-progress :legend-formatter="myFormatter"/>
<!-- shorter version-->
<ve-progress :legend-formatter="({ currentValue }) => `My Format ${currentValue}`"/>

  • animation

Descriptive string in form "type [duration delay]" that defines the initial animation of progress circle line filling. type is one from predefined animations and the optional duration and delay are Number values. Note that the order is important and that you can only define delay after duration.

  • type - is one of the predefined animations: default | rs | reverse | bounce| loop
  • duration - number in milliseconds, default 1000
  • delay - number in milliseconds, default 400
Example: 📜
animation="rs 700 200"
animation="bounce 1000"

  • loading

Boolean that forces loading state. The component provides an indeterminate loading state for the case that your data is not available immediately. With this property set to true you can use the component as the indeterminate progress.

  • loader

With this option defined as Object you can customize the loading circle that is shown in the states loading and determinate. Accepted properties are color, thickness, line, lineMode, duration and opactity. duration and opacity are specific for loading circle. Any valid CSS opacity value can be set as opacity. duration specifies the speed of the loader animation in milliseconds. If the loader option is not specified, the loading circle replicates the progress circle with a 0.55 default value for opacity and 1000 duration.

Example: 📜
<ve-progress :loader="{ color: 'green', lineMode: 'in 10', opacity: '0.6', duration: 1500 }" />

  • determinate

Boolean that provides a determinate loading state that indicates that your data loading is still in progress but allows to show the progress.

  • noData

Animated: ✔️

Boolean that forces no data state. The component provides a no data state for the case that your data is not available. The circle progress is still empty.

❗ The component will take the no data state even if you provide an invalid progress value

  • angle

Animated: ✔️

Is any number. It defines the starting point of the progress circle line.

  • fontSize

Animated: ✔️

Is any valid CSS size value. It defines the font size of the circle legend. You will have to use legendClass if you want to apply more specific styles.

  • fontColor

Animated: ✔️

Is any valid CSS color value. It defines the color of the circle legend. You will have to use legendClass if you want to apply more specific styles.

  • legendClass

Adds class to the circles legend to give you the possibility to style it.

  • dash

Animated: ✔️

Descriptive string in form "[strict] count spacing" that adds dashed empty progress line. This property provides the optional strict mode. In this mode you can define the explicit number of dashes as count with the given relative spacing as number in range >= 0 and < 1. Without strict the default behavior of the SVG stroke-dasharray property is used, where the size and spacings of the dashes are defined.

Example: 📜

<ve-progress dash="strict 60 0.5" /> - 60 dashes with 0.5 relative spacing

<ve-progress dash="10 10" /> - 10 pixels big dashes with 10 pixels spacing, the number of dashes depends on the empty circle circumference

  • half

Boolean that specifies the type of the circle. If it is set to true, only the half of the circle will be drawn.

Example: 📜
<ve-progress half />
half circle example
  • gap

Animated: ✔️

Defines the gap in pixels from one circle to the previous circle. It will be applied only if data prop is used.

Example: 📜
<ve-progress :gap="10"/>

  • dot

Animated: ✔️

The dot property lets you define a point indicator at the end of the progress line. You have a lot of freedom to customize the dot using a Number, descriptive String, or an Object to inject any CSS styles.

Number: :dot="10" - specifies a round dot with 10px width and height and default #713dfd color

Descriptive string: dot="size [color]" - size can be just a Number or a percent value like 5%, the calculation for percent values is similar to thickness and depends on the size. color is optional and lets you quickly define the color of the dot. The order of properties is important for parsing the String, and you can set the color only if the size is defined.

Object: :dot="{ size: Number | String [, any CSS inline style with Vue syntax] }" - to customize the point, you can define the prop as an Object. size is required and can be just a Number or a String to define a percent value. Only defining the prop as an Object you have the possibility to add any styles to the dot you want to, using Vue syntax for defining inline styles, you can even completely break the positioning of the dot, if you need. You cannot override the height of the dot since it is important for internal calculation and must be controllable.

Example: 📜

The examples will provide more clarity

:dot="10" // just a Number defining size in pixel
dot="10" // the same as above
dot="10%" // 10% from the circle size will be converted to pixel
dot="5% red" // adds red dot
// defines same dot as above
  size: "5%", // required
  backgroundColor: "red", // add any inline CSS using Vue syntax
  left: "10px", // you can even move the dot, but it is not recommended
dot example
  • reverse

Is a Boolean. reverse prop flips the circle, and the progress circle fills counterclockwise. Alternatively you can just set a negative value for progress.

Example: 📜
<ve-progress reverse />

  • data

You can specify 2 or more circles as Objects in an array as data. For each circle you can use almost every available property. It is not necessary to specify all properties, they will be merged with global props, the specified props will overwrite the global. The circles are rendered inside each other.

❗ Excluded props: lineMode, emptyThickness, legend. These properties will be ignored, if data is specified. The legend of this circle is also not shown.

Example: 📜
<!-- this props are applied to all circles, if not overwritten in "data"-->
<ve-progress color="blue" animation="loop 500" ...  :data="data"/>

data: [
    progress: 50, // required for each circle
    color: "red",  // will overwrite global progress color
    ...           // other options will be merged with global
    progress: 50, // required for each circle
    animation: "rs 1500 500"  // you can set almost any option that will be specific to this circle

Slot options

  • default

Use this scoped slot, if you want to customize the presentation of the circle legend and make a use of the animated counter, so your formatting still animated. This works similar to the legendFormatter and is just an alternative way to provide a custom format. You can access animated counter properties through the scoped slot props and adjust the presentation of the legend to your needs.

<ve-progress :progress="50">
  <template #default="{ counterTick }">
    <span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 1.6rem; color: green;">
      {{ myFormatter(counterTick.currentValue) }}
  • legend

In this slot you can put an additional element that you want to display beside the progress

  • legend-caption

    In this slot you can put any HTML and style it on your own. This slot is aligned below the progress.
Example: 📜

This code ...

<ve-progress ....>
<template #legend>
<template #legend-caption>
  <p>TASKS DONE</p>

... produces following result. The slots are marked corresponding:
