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


Nuxt uses the .nuxt/ directory in development to generate your Vue application.

This directory should be added to your .gitignore file to avoid pushing the dev build output to your repository.

This directory is interesting if you want to learn more about the files Nuxt generates based on your directory structure.

Nuxt also provides a Virtual File System (VFS) for modules to add templates to this directory without writing them to disk.

You can explore the generated files by opening the Nuxt DevTools in development mode and navigating to the Virtual Files tab.

You should not touch any files inside since the whole directory will be re-created when running nuxt dev.
