Getting started

$ npx create-nuxt-app <project-name>

It's as simple as that!


:point_right: 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:

  • 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
const config = require('./nuxt.config.js')
config.dev = (process.env.NODE_ENV !== 'production')

const 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 you have 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().

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)
.catch(function (error) {
  // And error appended while rendering the route

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.
