Nuxt DevTools is a set of visual tools that help you to know your app better.

💡 Ideas & Suggestions | 🗺️ Project Roadmap | 📚 Documentation

Warning: Experimental and under heavy development. APIs are subject to change.


Nuxt DevTools requires Nuxt v3.1.0 or higher.

You can opt-in Nuxt DevTools per-project by going to the project root and run:

npx nuxi@latest devtools enable

Restart your Nuxt server and open your app in browser. Click the Nuxt icon on the bottom (or press Shift + Alt / ⇧ Shift + ⌥ Option + D) to toggle the DevTools.

Note: If you using nvm or other Node version managers, we suggest to run the enable command again after switching Node version.

When you run nuxi devtools enable, Nuxt DevTools will be installed as a global module and only activated for the projects you enabled. The configuration will be saved in your local ~/.nuxtrc file, so it doesn't affect your team unless they also opt-in.

Similarly, you can disable it per-project by running:

npx nuxi@latest devtools disable

Install Manually

Nuxt DevTools is currently provided as a module (might be changed in the future). If you prefer, you can also install it locally, which will be activated for all your team members.

npm i -D @nuxt/devtools
// nuxt.config.ts
export default defineNuxtConfig({
modules: [

Edge Release Channel

Similar to Nuxt's Edge Channel, DevTools also offers an edge release channel, that automatically releases for every commit to main branch.

You can opt-in to the edge release channel by running:

"devDependencies": {
-- "@nuxt/devtools": "^0.1.0"
++ "@nuxt/devtools": "npm:@nuxt/devtools-edge@latest"

Remove lockfile (package-lock.json, yarn.lock, or pnpm-lock.yaml) and reinstall dependencies.

Module Options

To configure Nuxt DevTools, you can pass the devtools options.

// nuxt.config.ts
export default defineNuxtConfig({
modules: [
devtools: {
// Enable devtools (default: true)
enabled: true,
// VS Code Server options
vscode: {},
// ...other options

For all options available, please refer to TSDocs in your IDE, or the type definition file.
