You can use <NuxtLayout /> component to activate default layout on app.vue or error.vue.

<template>  <NuxtLayout>    some page content  </NuxtLayout></template>

<NuxtLayout /> can be used to override default layout on app.vue, error.vue or even page components found in the /pages directory.

name prop

<NuxtLayout /> component accepts the name prop, which you can pass to use a non-default layout, where name can be a static string, reactive reference or a computed property. It must match the name of the corresponding layout file in the /layouts directory.


<template>  <NuxtLayout :name="layout">    <NuxtPage />  </NuxtLayout></template><script setup>// layouts/custom.vueconst layout = 'custom'</script>

Please note the layout name is normalized to kebab-case, so if your layout file is named errorLayout.vue, it will become error-layout when passed as a name property to <NuxtLayout />.

<template>  <NuxtLayout name="error-layout">    <NuxtPage />  </NuxtLayout></template>

Layout and Transition

<NuxtLayout /> renders incoming content via <slot />, which is then wrapped around Vue鈥檚 <Transition /> component to activate layout transition. For this to work as expected, it is recommended that <NuxtLayout /> is not the root element of the page component.

<template>  <div>    <NuxtLayout name="custom">      <template #header> Some header template content. </template>    </NuxtLayout>  </div></template>
