The Vaadin Directory serves as a marketplace for add-ons and web components for your Vaadin applications. It’s a community-driven effort that includes integrations of other components, modifications to existing Vaadin components, or creations of additional features from scratch that are maintained by the authors. 

If you’d like to know how to integrate an existing web component into your Vaadin app, check out our documentation. To find additional web components, go to, and follow JC’s instructions on how to choose your JavaScript library.

As people are usually interested in knowing the popularity of the Directory add-ons, we decided to share the list of the 25 most-downloaded add-ons of 2020. These are based on user install copy actions in and don’t include projects created elsewhere, such as Maven, GitHub clones, etc.
