Help with querying and displaying Portable Text blocks in Vue

Heyy, I’m stuck with the portable text in vue.. has someone a real life code example, where you query the block and give it back to the SanityBlock Component? That would help me a lot.

Well not in vue, but I do have some in next js (here is a guide which shows a very narrow case from schema to component), but it might help. I looked into the vue pt repo and you should be fine understanding the way PT works and then transfer your knowledge into vue instead of react 🙂

Hmm thanks, but that didn’t help.. i just want to query the full block and display it as it is in html without any custom fields in it

okay then you just have to check our docs, guides and blog articles (there is a lot in there), plus the vue repos ReadMe’s pretty clear as well.Unless you want some specific help on a step, I would start there

Why do i need a component in the serializers function?

  <SanityBlocks :blocks="blocks" :serializers="serializers" />

import { SanityBlocks } from 'sanity-blocks-vue-component';
import CustomComponent from 'CustomComponent.vue';

export default {
  components: { SanityBlocks },
  setup() {
    const blocks = [...]; // Sanity block text
    const serializers = {
      types: {
        custom: CustomComponent,
    return { blocks, serializers };

Isn’t there an easier way to render a basic richtext array than making a serializer for every sort of tag… that seems very complicated.. Or is there a Array to HTML plugin or something like that.. 😄

You only need to serialise your custom components and blocks. The rest will work out of the box

I would recommend reading the docs and ReadMe’s 😉

What is your blocker and what have you tried out?

I don’t quite understand how to configure the serializer. Why do I have to add a component and what does it have to look like?

There i query the block:
    <div :class="name">
        <SanityBlocks :block="content.impressumContent" />

    import { SanityBlocks } from 'sanity-blocks-vue-component';
    import sanity from "../../sanity.js";

    const query = `*[_type == "impressum"]{
    export default {
        components: { 
        data() {
            return {
                name: 'p-impressum',
                loading: true,
                content: [],
        created() {
        methods: {
            fetchData() {
                this.error = this.impressum = null;
                this.loading = true;
                    (content) => {
                        this.loading = false;
                        this.content = content;
                    (error) => {
                        this.error = error;
And That is the Scheme of the queried document:

export default {
    name: 'impressum',
    type: 'document',
    title: 'Impressum',
    fields: [
            name: 'impressumContent',
            title: 'Impressum Content',
            type: 'array',
            of: [
                    type: 'block'

If i console.log(content.impressumContent) i get the block so the fetch worked. But the &lt;SanityBlocks/&gt; does nothing.. and i can’t get my head around it.
