🌅 🚀 Nuxt Optimized Images
Automatically optimizes images used in Nuxt.js projects (JPEG, PNG, SVG, WebP and GIF).
Image sizes can often get reduced up to 60%, but this is not the only thing
- Reduces image size by optimizing images during build.
- Improves loading speed by providing progressive images (for formats that support it).
- JPEG/PNG images can be converted to
WebPon the fly for an even smaller size.
- Can resize images or generate low-quality image placeholders (lqip) and extract the dominant colors of it.
- Provides query params for file-specific handling/settings.
- And supports these features already included in Nuxt.js:
- Content hash to the file name so images can get cached on CDN level and in the browser for a long time.
- Inlined small images to save HTTP requests and additional roundtrips.
- Same URLs fo unchanged images over multiple builds for long time caching.
node >= 10 and
nuxt >= 2 are required.
npm install --save-dev @bazzite/nuxt-optimized-images
yarn add --dev @bazzite/nuxt-optimized-images
buildModules section of nuxt.config.js:
⚠️ If you are using Nuxt
< 2.9.0, use
See the configuration section for all available options.
⚠️ Images won't get optimized out of the box. You have to install the optimization packages you really need in addition to this module. This doesn't force you to download big optimization libraries you don't even use. Please check out the table of all optional optimization packages.
You have to install the optimization packages you need in your project in addition to this module. Then,
@bazzite/nuxt-optimized-images detects all the supported packages and uses them.
So you only have to install these packages with npm, there is no additional step needed after that.
The following optimization packages are available and supported:
|Optimization Package||Description||Project Link|
||Optimizes JPEG images||Link|
||Optimizes PNG images||Link|
||Alternative for optimizing PNG images||Link|
||Optimizes GIF images||Link|
||Optimizes SVG images and icons||Link|
||Optimizes WebP images and can convert JPEG/PNG images to WebP on the fly (WebP resource query)||Link|
||Generates low quality image placeholders and can extract the dominant colors of an image (lqip resource query)||Link|
||Can resize images on the fly and create multiple versions of it for a
||Loads images and exports tiny SQIP previews as
Example: If you have JPG, PNG, and SVG images in your project, you would then need to run
npm install --save-dev imagemin-mozjpeg imagemin-pngquant imagemin-svgo# oryarn add --dev imagemin-mozjpeg imagemin-pngquant imagemin-svgo
To install all optional packages, run:
npm install --save-dev imagemin-mozjpeg imagemin-pngquant imagemin-gifsicle imagemin-svgo webp-loader lqip-loader responsive-loader sqip-loader sharp# oryarn add --dev imagemin-mozjpeg imagemin-pngquant imagemin-gifsicle imagemin-svgo webp-loader lqip-loader responsive-loader sqip-loader sharp
⚠️ Please note that by default, images are only optimized for production builds, not development builds. However, this can get changed with the
