unopinionated, universal Vue.js app made simple


Server-side rendered Vue.js app should be made easy, since vue-router is well optimized for SSR, we built unvue on the top of it to make you build universal Vue.js app fast with fewer trade-offs, the only requirement is to export router instance in your entry file, which means you have full control of vue-router as well!


  • Server-side rendering with code-split support
  • Extensible webpack config
  • Plugin system
  • Next.js/Nuxt.js-like behavior via plugin
  • Exposed a fluent API

yarn add unvue


Add npm scripts:

  "scripts": {
    "build": "unvue build",
    "start": "unvue start",
    "dev": "unvue dev"

Then populate an src/index.js in current working directory and it should export at least router instance:

// your vue router instance 
import router from './router'
export default { router }

Run npm run dev to start development server.

To run in production server, run npm run build && npm start

Prior Art

unvue wouldn't exist if it wasn't for excellent prior art, we're inspired by these projects:


  1. Fork it!
  2. Create your feature branch: git checkout -b my-new-feature
  3. Commit your changes: git commit -am 'Add some feature'
  4. Push to the branch: git push origin my-new-feature
  5. Submit a pull request :D
