Using Vite Plugins in Nuxt

Learn how to integrate Vite plugins into your Nuxt project.

While Nuxt modules offer extensive functionality, sometimes a specific Vite plugin might meet your needs more directly.

First, we need to install the Vite plugin, for our example, we'll use @rollup/plugin-yaml:

npm install @rollup/plugin-yaml

Next, we need to import and add it to our nuxt.config.ts file:

import yaml from '@rollup/plugin-yaml'

export default defineNuxtConfig({
  vite: {
    plugins: [

Now we installed and configured our Vite plugin, we can start using YAML files directly in our project.

For example, we can have a config.yaml that stores configuration data and import this data in our Nuxt components:

greeting: "Hello, Nuxt with Vite!"
