Nuxt admin

Admin module for nuxt using Netlify CMS.

Install

With yarn:

yarn add @juliendargelos/nuxt-admin

With npm:

npm install @juliendargelos/nuxt-admin --save

Usage

Nuxt admin makes your static nuxt project able to edit data files through Netlify CMS.

I recommend using the nuxt-data package to manage yaml data files.

Also see my nuxt-starter which is an example using nuxt-admin and nuxt-data.

Read the Netlify CMS documentation for more informations.

Add the module in your nuxt config:

export default {
   modules: [
    ['@juliendargelos/nuxt-admin'{
      title: 'My website - Admin',
      lazy: !process.env.ADMIN
    }]
   ]
}

Options:

  • title (default: 'Admin'): Specify the title of the admin page.
  • lazy (default: false): If set to true, the admin page will not be built if it has already been.

Create the admin folder

Create the following files at the root of your nuxt project:

Import and configure admin

You have to import nuxt admin from pages/index.vue and admin/index.js:

// pages/index.vue
 
<script>
import 'admin' // required
</script>
// admin/index.js
 
import 'admin' // Required
import '~/assets/admin.sass' // You can import a custom stylesheet
import cms from 'netlify-cms' // Required
import Preview from 'admin/preview'
import Home from '~/pages/index'
import Article from '~/components/article'
 
// Register your stylesheets
cms.registerPreviewStyle(document.querySelector('link[rel="stylesheet"]').href)
 
// Register your previews
cms.registerPreviewTemplate('home', Preview.for(Home))
cms.registerPreviewTemplate('article', Preview.for(Article))

You can use any of your vue component as a Netlify CMS preview with Preview.for which creates a bridge from react to vue.

Your vue component will recieve data from admin form as props (see Netlify CMS widgets):

# static/admin/config.yml 
 
collections:
  label: Articles
    label_singular: Article
    name: article
    folder: data/articles/
    extension: yml
    create: true
    fields:
      {label: Title, name: title, widget: string}
      {label: Image, name: image, widget: image}
      {label: Content, name: content, widget: markdown}

components/article.vue:

<template>
  <div>
    <h2>{{title}}</h2>
    <img :src="image">
    <Markdown :source="content"/>
  </div>
</template>
 
<script>
  import Markdown from '~/components/markdown'
 
  export default {
    props: ['title', 'content', 'image'],
 
    components: {
      Markdown // Assuming that this component translates markdown into html
    }
  }
</script> 

Build

The admin page is generated in a separate webpack process which output to static/admin. So the admin page is published as a static file, independently of vue and vue router.

The admin page is only generated when NODE_ENV is equal to 'production'. So make sure to run nuxt build or nuxt generate before running nuxt if you want to access admin from dev server.

You might want to push the built admin to your repository so Netlify deploys will be much faster. Also use the lazy module option to prevent unnecessary admin build when deploying to Netlify (especially for deploys triggered by Netlify CMS):

// nuxt.config.js
 
export default {
  modules: [
    ['@juliendargelos/nuxt-admin', {
      lazy: !!process.env.CONTEXT // The CONTEXT environment variable is set by Netlify
    }]
  ]
}
