    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') = (process.env.NODE_ENV !== 'production')
    const nuxt = new Nuxt(config)
    // Start build process (only in development)
    if ( {
      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

    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.
