Official Nuxt module for TresJS. Build 3D scenes as they were Vue components.


  • 🤓 Auto-import components and composables from the TresJS ecosystem
  • TresCanvas client only, you don't need to add .client to the component name or <ClientOnly />
  • Automatically configures vue compiler to support TresJS components, see why?
  • All the DX Magic that comes with Nuxt ✨
  • NEW v2: TresJS nuxt devtools.

Quick Setup

  1. Add @tresjs/nuxt dependency to your project
npx nuxi@latest module add tresjs
  1. Add @tresjs/nuxt to the modules section of nuxt.config.ts
export default defineNuxtConfig({
  modules: ['@tresjs/nuxt'],

That's it! You can now use @tresjs/nuxt in your Nuxt app ✨

If you want to use the any package from the TresJS ecosystem, you can install the packages you want to use and they will be auto-imported by the module 🧙🏼‍♂️.

# Using pnpm
pnpm add @tresjs/cientos @tresjs/post-processing



TresJS nuxt module comes with a devtools extension that allows you to inspect the 3D scene and measure performance.

To activate the devtools, you need to add the devtools option to the tres section of nuxt.config.ts.

export default defineNuxtConfig({
  modules: ['@tresjs/nuxt', '@nuxt/devtools'],
  tres: {
    devtools: true,

GLSL shaders support

TresJS nuxt module comes with a vite plugin that allows you to import GLSL shaders as strings. It uses vite-plugin-glsl under the hood.

export default defineNuxtConfig({
  modules: ['@tresjs/nuxt', '@nuxt/devtools'],
  tres: {
    glsl: true,

With this option enabled, you can import GLSL shaders as strings in your components.

<script setup lang="ts">
import vertexShader from './shaders/vertex.glsl'
import fragmentShader from './shaders/fragment.glsl'

const uniforms = {
  uTime: { value: 0 },
  uAmplitude: { value: new Vector2(0.1, 0.1) },
  uFrequency: { value: new Vector2(20, 5) },

    :position="[0, 4, 0]"
    <TresSphereGeometry :args="[2, 32, 32]" />
