Join the Nuxt Team at Frontend Nation 4-7 June.

Auto Imports

Nuxt 3 adopts a minimal friction approach, meaning wherever possible components and composables are auto-imported.

In the rest of the migration documentation, you will notice that key Nuxt and Vue utilities do not have explicit imports. This is not a typo; Nuxt will automatically import them for you, and you should get full type hinting if you have followed the instructions to use Nuxt's TypeScript support.

You can look at .nuxt/types/components.d.ts and .nuxt/types/imports.d.ts to see how Nuxt has resolved your components and composable auto-imports.
