The official Nuxt Certification Program in partnership with VueSchool is coming.

utils

Use the utils/ directory to auto-import your utility functions throughout your application.

The main purpose of the utils/ directory is to allow a semantic distinction between your Vue composables and other auto-imported utility functions.

Usage

Method 1: Using named export

utils/index.ts
export const { 
format
:
formatNumber
} =
Intl
.
NumberFormat
('en-GB', {
notation
: 'compact',
maximumFractionDigits
: 1
})

Method 2: Using default export

utils/random-entry.ts or utils/randomEntry.ts
// It will be available as randomEntry() (camelCase of file name without extension)
export default function (
arr
:
Array
<any>) {
return
arr
[
Math
.
floor
(
Math
.
random
() *
arr
.
length
)]
}

You can now use auto imported utility functions in .js, .ts and .vue files

app.vue
<template>
  <p>{{ formatNumber(1234) }}</p>
</template>

The way utils/ auto-imports work and are scanned is identical to the composables/ directory.
These utils are only available within the Vue part of your app.
Only server/utils are auto-imported in the server/ directory.
