Welcome to Nuxt 3 : The Hybrid Vue Framework
What is Nuxt?
Nuxt's goal is to make web development intuitive and performant with a great developer experience in mind.
To understand what Nuxt is, we need to understand what we need to create a modern application:
- A bundler to support hot module replacement in development and bundle your code for production, we support both webpack 5 and Vite.
- A server for serving your application in development, but also to support server-side rendering or API routes, Nuxt uses h3 for deployment versatility such as serverless, workers, Node.js and unmatched performance.
- A routing library to handle client-side navigation, we chose vue-router.
This is only the tip of the iceberg, imagine having to set up all of this for your project, make it work, and then, maintain it over time. We have been doing this since October 2016, tuning all the configurations to provide the best optimization and performance for any Vue application.
Nuxt takes care of this so you can focus on what matters: creating your web application.
On top of this setup, Nuxt provides a directory structure to follow, focused on specific features to keep your focus on creating, not configuring.
Nuxt is composed of different core packages:
We recommend reading each concept to have a full vision of Nuxt capabilities and the scope of each package.
Nuxt is the backbone of your Vue.js project, giving structure to build your project with confidence while keeping flexibility.
Extendable with a strong module ecosystem and hooks engine, it makes it easy to connect your REST or GraphQL endpoints, favorite CMS, CSS frameworks and more. PWA and AMP support is only a module away from your Nuxt project.
