Join the Nuxt Team at Frontend Nation 4-7 June.


Nuxt provides a quick and simple way to show a full screen error page if needed.

Within the Nuxt context you can use showError to show an error.


  • error: string | Error | Partial<{ cause, data, message, name, stack, statusCode, statusMessage }>
showError("😱 Oh no, an error has been thrown.")
  statusCode: 404,
  statusMessage: "Page Not Found"

The error is set in the state using useError() to create a reactive and SSR-friendly shared error state across components.

showError calls the app:error hook.
