Nuxt Web Vitals

Web Vitals: Essential module for a healthy Nuxt.js

Web Vitals is an initiative by Google to provide unified guidance for quality signals that are essential to delivering a great user experience on the web. This module will gather those metrics on each page view, and send them to a provider using either Navigator.sendBeacon() or fetch()


# yarnyarn add --dev @nuxtjs/web-vitals# npmnpm install --save-dev @nuxtjs/web-vitals

Add @nuxtjs/web-vitals to the buildModules section of your nuxt.config.js

export default {  buildModules: [    '@nuxtjs/web-vitals'  ]}

⚠️ If you are using Nuxt < v2.9 you have to install the module as a dependency (No --save-dev or --dev flags) and use modules section in nuxt.config.js instead of buildModules.


{  webVitals: {    // provider: '', // auto detectd    debug: false,    disabled: false  }}
