🚀 Usage

Note This module is for Nuxt 3. Check out @storyblok/nuxt-2 for Nuxt 2.

Important If you are first-time user of the Storyblok, read the Getting Started guide to get a project ready in less than 5 minutes.

Installation

Install @storyblok/nuxt:

npm install @storyblok/nuxt
# yarn add @storyblok/nuxt

Add following code to modules section of nuxt.config.js and replace the accessToken with API token from Storyblok space.

import { defineNuxtConfig } from "nuxt";

export default defineNuxtConfig({
  modules: [
    ["@storyblok/nuxt", { accessToken: "<your-access-token>" }]
    // ...
  ]
});

You can also use the storyblok config if you prefer:

import { defineNuxtConfig } from "nuxt";

export default defineNuxtConfig({
  modules: ["@storyblok/nuxt"],
  storyblok: {
    accessToken: "<your-access-token>"
  }
});

Warning This SDK uses the Fetch API under the hood. If your environment doesn't support it, you need to install a polyfill like isomorphic-fetch. More info on storyblok-js-client docs.

Options

When you initialize the module, you can pass all @storyblok/vue options plus a bridge option explained in our JS SDK Storyblok bridge section and a enableSudoMode option to define your own plugin (see below).

Note If you want to use Storyblok inside nuxt-devtools you can use the option devtools, if enabled, make sure to have installed the @nuxt/devtools module and enable it on your nuxt config.

// Defaults
["@storyblok/nuxt", {
  {
    accessToken: "<your-access-token>",
    bridge: true,
    devtools: true,
    apiOptions: {}, // storyblok-js-client options
  }
}]

Define your own plugin

While the recommended approach covers most cases, there are specific instances where you may need to use the enableSudoMode option and disable our plugin, allowing you to incorporate your own.

// nuxt.config.ts
modules: [
  [
    "@storyblok/nuxt",
    {
      accessToken: "<your-access-token>",
      enableSudoMode: true
    }
  ]
];

To include additional functionalities in the SDK's apiOptions, such as custom cache methods, you can implement the following solution inside the plugins folder (autoimported):

// plugins/storyblok.js
import { StoryblokVue, apiPlugin } from "@storyblok/vue";

export default defineNuxtPlugin(({ vueApp }) => {
  vueApp.use(StoryblokVue, {
    accessToken: "<your-access-token>",
    apiOptions: {
      cache: {
        type: "custom",
        custom: {
          flush() {
            console.log("all right");
          }
        }
      }
    },
    use: [apiPlugin]
  });
});

Region parameter

Possible values:

  • eu (default): For spaces created in the EU
  • us: For spaces created in the US
  • cn: For spaces created in China

Full example for a space created in the US:

["@storyblok/nuxt", {
  {
    accessToken: "<your-access-token>",
    apiOptions: {
      region: "us"
    }
  }
}]

Important For spaces created in the United States or China, the region parameter must be specified.

Getting started

1. Creating and linking your components to Storyblok Visual Editor

To link your Vue components to the equivalent one in your Storyblok space:

  • First, you need to load them globally adding them to the ~/storyblok directory. It's important to name them with Pascal case in your code ExampleComponent.vue and with a hyphen inside your Storyblok space example-component, so they will be imported automatically.
    If you want to define your own directory for the Storyblok related components, you can use the option componentsDir in the nuxt.config.js:
    // nuxt.config.ts
    modules: [
      [
        "@storyblok/nuxt",
        {
          accessToken: "<your-access-token>",
          componentsDir: false,
        }
      ]
    ],
    components: {
      dirs: [
        {
          path: '~/components/storyblok',
          global: true,
        }
      ]
    },
    

    Otherwise, you can set another directory and load them manually (for example, by using a Nuxt plugin).

    Warning Take into account that if you name a component inside the storyblok folder the same as another in the components folder, it won't work properly. Tip: Keep the components in your Nuxt project with different names.

  • For each component, use the v-editable directive on its root element, passing the blok property that they receive:
<div v-editable="blok" / >
  • Finally, use <StoryblokComponent> which is available globally in the Nuxt app:
<StoryblokComponent :blok="blok" />

The blok is the actual blok data coming from Storblok's Content Delivery API.

2. Getting Storyblok Stories and listen to Visual Editor events

Composition API

The simplest way is by using the useAsyncStoryblok one-liner composable (it's autoimported). Where you need to pass as first parameter the slug, while the second and third parameters, apiOptions and bridgeOptions respectively, are optional.

Check the available apiOptions in our API docs and bridgeOptions passed to the Storyblok Bridge.

Note If you want to know more about versioning { version: "draft" /* or "publish" */ } then go to the section Working with preview and/or production environments

<script setup>
  const story = await useAsyncStoryblok(
    "vue",
    { version: "draft", resolve_relations: "Article.author" }, // API Options
    { resolveRelations: ["Article.author"], resolveLinks: "url" } // Bridge Options
  );

  if (story.value.status) {
    throw createError({
      statusCode: story.value.status,
      statusMessage: story.value.response
    });
  }
</script>

<template>
  <StoryblokComponent v-if="story" :blok="story.content" />
</template>

Which is the short-hand equivalent to using useStoryblokApi inside useState and useStoryblokBridge functions separately:

<script setup>
  const story = useState();
  const storyblokApi = useStoryblokApi();

  const { data } = await storyblokApiInstance.get(
    `cdn/stories/vue`,
    {
      version: "draft"
    }
  );
  story.value = data.story;

  onMounted(() => {
    useStoryblokBridge(
      story.value.id,
      (evStory) => (story.value = evStory),
      { resolveRelations: ["Article.author"], resolveLinks: "url" } // Bridge Options
    );
  });
</script>

<template>
  <StoryblokComponent v-if="story" :blok="story.content" />
</template>

The useState is an SSR-friendly ref replacement. Its value will be preserved after server-side rendering (during client-side hydration).

Rendering Rich Text

You can easily render rich text by using the renderRichText function that comes with @storyblok/nuxt and a Vue computed property:

<template>
  <div v-html="articleContent"></div>
</template>

<script setup>
  const props = defineProps({ blok: Object });
  const articleContent = computed(() =>
    renderRichText(props.blok.articleContent)
  );
</script>

You can also set a custom Schema and component resolver by passing the options as the second parameter of the renderRichText function:

<script setup>
  import cloneDeep from "clone-deep";

  const mySchema = cloneDeep(RichTextSchema); // you can make a copy of the default RichTextSchema
  // ... and edit the nodes and marks, or add your own.
  // Check the base RichTextSchema source here https://github.com/storyblok/storyblok-js-client/blob/v4/source/schema.js

  const props = defineProps({ blok: Object });

  const articleContent = computed(() =>
    renderRichText(props.blok.articleContent, {
      schema: mySchema,
      resolver: (component, blok) => {
        switch (component) {
          case "my-custom-component":
            return `<div class="my-component-class">${blok.text}</div>`;
          default:
            return "Resolver not defined";
        }
      }
    })
  );
</script>

3. Working with preview and/or production environments

Remember that the bridge only works using version: 'draft' and the Preview Access Token.

For the production site, NOT used as a preview for content editors, version: 'published' and Public Access Token should be used.

Note If you're using production as a preview for marketeers and your public site, you will need a plugin to handle different .env variables, or versions using the Preview Access Token, checking if you are inside Storyblok or not. For example, something like if (window.location.search.includes(_storyblok_tk[token]=<YOUR_TOKEN>).

Check the official docs on how to access different content versions.

API

useAsyncStoryblok(slug, apiOptions, bridgeOptions)

(Recommended Option) Uses useState under the hood to help with SSR compatibility.

Check the available apiOptions (passed to storyblok-js-client) and bridgeOptions (passed to the Storyblok Bridge).

useStoryblok(slug, apiOptions, bridgeOptions)

It could be helpful to use useStoryblok instead of useAsyncStoryblok when we need to make full client-side requests, for example, getting personalized data for a logged user.

Check the available apiOptions (passed to storyblok-js-client) and bridgeOptions (passed to the Storyblok Bridge).

useStoryblokApi()

Returns the instance of the storyblok-js-client.

useStoryblokBridge(storyId, callback, bridgeOptions)

Use this one-line function to cover the most common use case: updating the story when any kind of change happens on Storyblok Visual Editor.
