Getting started

$ npm install nuxt

Add a script to your package.json like this:

{
  "scripts": {
    "start": "nuxt"
  }
}

After that, the file-system is the main API. Every .vue file becomes a route that gets automatically processed and rendered.

Populate ./pages/index.vue inside your project:

<template>
  <h1>Hello {{ name }}!</h1>
</template>
 
<script>
export default {
  data: () => {
    return { name: 'world' }
  }
}
</script> 

And then run:

npm start

Go to http://localhost:3000

Templates

👉 We recommend to start directly with our cli create-nuxt-app for the latest updates.

Or you can start by using one of our starter templates:

  • starter: Basic Nuxt.js project template
  • express: Nuxt.js + Express
  • koa: Nuxt.js + Koa
  • adonuxt: Nuxt.js + AdonisJS
  • micro: Nuxt.js + Micro
  • nuxtent: Nuxt.js + Nuxtent module for content heavy sites

Using nuxt.js programmatically

const { Nuxt, Builder } = require('nuxt')
 
// Import and set nuxt.js options
let config = require('./nuxt.config.js')
config.dev = (process.env.NODE_ENV !== 'production')
 
let nuxt = new Nuxt(config)
 
// Start build process (only in development)
if (config.dev) {
  new Builder(nuxt).build()
}
 
// You can use nuxt.render(req, res) or nuxt.renderRoute(route, context)

Using nuxt.js as a middleware

You might want to use your own server with your configurations, your API and everything awesome your created with. That's why you can use nuxt.js as a middleware. It's recommended to use it at the end of your middleware since it will handle the rendering of your web application and won't call next().

app.use(nuxt.render)

Learn more: https://nuxtjs.org/api/nuxt-render

Render a specific route

This is mostly used for nuxt generate and test purposes but you might find another utility!

nuxt.renderRoute('/about', context)
.then(function ({ html, error }) {
  // You can check error to know if your app displayed the error page for this route
  // Useful to set the correct status code if an error appended:
  if (error) {
    return res.status(error.statusCode || 500).send(html)
  }
  res.send(html)
})
.catch(function (error) {
  // And error appended while rendering the route
})

Examples

Please take a look at https://nuxtjs.org/examples or directly in https://github.com/nuxt/nuxt.js/tree/dev/examples.

Production deployment

To deploy, instead of running nuxt, you probably want to build ahead of time. Therefore, building and starting are separate commands:

nuxt build
nuxt start

For example, to deploy with now a package.json like follows is recommended:

{
  "name": "my-app",
  "dependencies": {
    "nuxt": "latest"
  },
  "scripts": {
    "dev": "nuxt",
    "build": "nuxt build",
    "start": "nuxt start"
  }
}

Then run now and enjoy!

Note: we recommend putting .nuxt in .npmignore or .gitignore.
