Nuxt 2 reached End-of-Life on June 30th, 2024.


Get started with Nuxt quickly with our online starters or start locally with your terminal.

Play Online

If you just want to play around with Nuxt in your browser without setting up a project, you can use one of our online sandboxes:

Open on StackBlitz

Open on CodeSandbox

Or follow the steps below to set up a new Nuxt project on your computer.

New Project


Additional notes for an optimal setup:
  • Node.js: Make sure to use an even numbered version (18, 20, etc)
  • Nuxtr: Install the community-developed Nuxtr extension

Open a terminal (if you're using Visual Studio Code, you can open an integrated terminal) and use the following command to create a new starter project:

npx nuxi@latest init <project-name>
Alternatively, you can find other starters or themes by opening and following the instructions there.

Open your project folder in Visual Studio Code:

code <project-name>

Or change directory into your new project from your terminal:

cd <project-name>

Development Server

Now you'll be able to start your Nuxt app in development mode:

yarn dev --open
Well done! A browser window should automatically open for http://localhost:3000.

Next Steps

Now that you've created your Nuxt project, you are ready to start building your application.
