Plugin doesn't import all sub-components

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug

According to the documentation on plugins, importing a plugin should import all sub-components as well.

When importing as plugins, all subcomponents and related directives are imported in most cases. i.e. When importing <b-nav>, all the <nav-*> sub components are also included, as well all dropdown sub components.

I’ve added the following import:

import { FormPlugin } from 'bootstrap-vue'

However, when using form components like b-form-input or b-form-checkbox, I get error messages:

Unknown custom element: <b-form-input> - did you register the component correctly? For recursive components, make sure to provide the “name” option.

Did I misinterpret the documentation? Or does it simply not apply to b-form and I have to import every single form component I want to use individually?

Steps to reproduce the bug

  1. Use the above mentioned import
  2. Add a <b-form-input> to the page
  3. Check error console

Expected behavior

The form sub-components should be imported automatically.

Someone made this loader, which goal was to automatically import only the components used, removing the need to manually importing them.

I haven’t tested it, and i don’t know how well it works. But you can try it if you want.

Ok, thanks again. I was just wondering if there’s a less granular way of importing components.
