In this snippet, we will see how to add or remove a class from an HTML element with JavaScript. It can be done with the classList property of the HTLM element we want to alter. In the following demo, we will remove or add the btn-primary class from the button it contains it or not. In this case, we could also use the toggle function.

/**
 * I am using a JavaScript module to isolate the code of each snippet.
 * In fact it's a Vue.js mixin. Take the code called by the mounted()

export default {
  methods: {
    snippet92 () {
      if (this.$refs.button92.classList.contains('btn-primary')) {
        this.$refs.button92.classList.toggle('btn-primary')
      } else {
        this.$refs.button92.classList.add('btn-primary')
      }

      // or this.$refs.button92.classList.toggle('btn-primary')
    }
  }
}
