vuejs update parent data from child component

Two-way binding has been deprecated in Vue 2.0 in favor of using a more event-driven architecture. In general, a child should not mutate its props. Rather, it should $emit events and let the parent respond to those events.

In your specific case, you could use a custom component with v-model. This is a special syntax which allows for something close to two-way binding, but is actually a shorthand for the event-driven architecture described above. You can read about it here ->

Here's a simple example:

Vue.component('child', {
  template: '#child',
  //The child has a prop named 'value'. v-model will automatically bind to this prop
  props: ['value'],
  methods: {
    updateValue: function (value) {
      this.$emit('input', value);

new Vue({
  el: '#app',
  data: {
    parentValue: 'hello'
<script src=""></script>

<div id="app">
  <p>Parent value: {{parentValue}}</p>
  <child v-model="parentValue"></child>

<template id="child">
   <input type="text" v-bind:value="value" v-on:input="updateValue($">

The docs state that

<custom-input v-bind:value="something" v-on:input="something = arguments[0]"></custom-input>

is equivalent to

<custom-input v-model="something"></custom-input>

That is why the prop on the child needs to be named value, and why the child needs to $emit an event named input.

In child component:

this.$emit('eventname', this.variable)

In parent component:

<component @eventname="updateparent"></component>

methods: {
    updateparent(variable) {
        this.parentvariable = variable
