Nuxt Well-Known

Nuxt (v3.x) module to handle .well-known URIs with middlewares

See https://www.iana.org/assignments/well-known-uris/well-known-uris.xhtml

⚠️ Only tested with SSR mode (not SSG and CSR)

Nuxt Well-Known module is integrated with the Nuxt Devtools.

Well-Known URIs Supported

  1. security.txt
  2. change-password
  3. Dynamic routes with content: content-uris

Quick Setup

  1. Add @zadigetvoltaire/nuxt-well-known dependency to your project
# Using pnpm
pnpm add -D @zadigetvoltaire/nuxt-well-known

# Using yarn
yarn add --dev @zadigetvoltaire/nuxt-well-known

# Using npm
npm install --save-dev @zadigetvoltaire/nuxt-well-known
  1. Add @zadigetvoltaire/nuxt-well-known to the modules section of nuxt.config.ts
export default defineNuxtConfig({
  modules: [
    '@zadigetvoltaire/nuxt-well-known'
  ],
})
  1. Add configuration in nuxtConfig.wellKnown or in nuxtConfig.runtimeConfig.public.wellKnown

This module supports 2 ways of configuration:

  • Directly in key wellKnown of the Nuxt config
  • In public runtimeConfig: useful to override the config with environment variables and handle multiple environments
export default defineNuxtConfig({
  ...
  wellKnown: {
    devtools: true,
    securityTxt: {
      disabled: false,
      contacts: ['me@example.com'],
      expires: new Date('2025-02-03')
    },
    changePassword: {
      disabled: false,
      redirectTo: 'https://example.com/password-recovery'
    }
  }
  ...
  runtimeConfig: {
    public: {
      wellKnown: {
        devtools: true,
        securityTxt: {
          disabled: false,
          contacts: ['me@example.com'],
          expires: new Date('2025-02-03').toISOString() // ⚠️ in runtime config, `expires` should be a string
        },
        changePassword: {
          disabled: false,
          redirectTo: 'https://example.com/password-recovery'
        }
      }
    }
  }
})

Module Options

interface ModuleOptions {
  /**
   * Enable Nuxt Devtools integration
   *
   * @default true
   */
  devtools?: boolean
  securityTxt?: SecurityTxtOptions,
  changePassword?: ChangePasswordOptions,
  contentUris?: ContentUriOptions[],
}

Middlewares

security.txt

This middleware will generate a security.txt file available under /.well-known/security.txt URI.

Model options:

type SecurityTxtOptions = {
  disabled?: boolean;
  contacts: string[]; // https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc9116#section-2.5.3
  expires: string | Date; // https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc9116#section-2.5.5
  encryption?: string[]; // https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc9116#section-2.5.4
  acknowledgments?: string[]; // https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc9116#section-2.5.1
  preferredLanguages?: string[]; // https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc9116#section-2.5.8
  canonical?: string[]; // https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc9116#section-2.5.2
  policy?: string[]; // https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc9116#section-2.5.7
  hiring?: string[]; // https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc9116#section-2.5.6
}

change-password

This middleware will redirect requests of /.well-known/change-password to the configured target URL.

type ChangePasswordOptions = {
  disabled?: boolean;
  redirectTo: string;
}

content-uris

With this middleware, you can generate uris with content

type ContentUriOptions = {
  disabled?: boolean;
  path: string;
  content: string;
}

Example:

// nuxt.config.ts
export default defineNuxtConfig({
  modules: [
    '@zadigetvoltaire/nuxt-well-known',
  ],
  wellKnown: {
    contentUris: [
      { path: 'apple-developer-merchantid-domain-association', content: 'merchantid' },
      { path: 'content-uri.txt', content: 'content-uri' }
    ]
  }
})

Will render:

  • https://example.com/.well-known/apple-developer-merchantid-domain-association --> merchantid
  • https://example.com/.well-known/content-uri.txt --> content-uri

That's it! You can now use Nuxt Well-Known in your Nuxt app ✨
