Nuxt UI Pro v1.0 is out with 50+ Vue components.


Some specific points about contributions to the framework repository.

Once you've read the general contribution guide, here are some specific points to make about contributions to the nuxt/nuxt repository.

Monorepo Guide


To contribute to Nuxt, you need to set up a local environment.

  1. Fork the nuxt/nuxt repository to your own GitHub account and then clone it to your local device.
  2. Ensure using the latest Node.js (20.x)
  3. Enable Corepack to have pnpm and yarn
    corepack enable
  4. Run pnpm install to Install the dependencies with pnpm:
    pnpm install
    If you are adding a dependency, please use pnpm add.
    The pnpm-lock.yaml file is the source of truth for all Nuxt dependencies.
  5. Activate the passive development system
    pnpm dev:prepare
  6. Check out a branch where you can work and commit your changes:
    git checkout -b my-new-branch

Then, test your changes against the playground and test your changes before submitting a pull request.


While working on a pull request, you will likely want to check if your changes are working correctly.

You can modify the example app in playground/, and run:

pnpm dev
Please make sure not to commit it to your branch, but it could be helpful to add some example code to your PR description. This can help reviewers and other Nuxt users understand the feature you've built in-depth.


Every new feature should have a corresponding unit test (if possible). The test/ directory in this repository is currently a work in progress, but do your best to create a new test following the example of what's already there.

Before creating a PR or marking it as ready-to-review, ensure that all tests pass by running:

pnpm test


You might have noticed already that we use ESLint to enforce a coding standard.

Before committing your changes, to verify that the code style is correct, run:

pnpm lint
You can use pnpm lint --fix to fix most of the style changes.
If there are still errors left, you must correct them manually.


If you are adding a new feature or refactoring or changing the behavior of Nuxt in any other manner, you'll likely want to document the changes. Please include any changes to the docs in the same PR. You don't have to write documentation up on the first commit (but please do so as soon as your pull request is mature enough).

Make sure to make changes according to the Documentation Style Guide.
