How Do I Create a Blog Using NUXT JS?

In this article, we will be looking at how to create a blog using NUXT JS. We will be using the Nuxt.js framework and the Vue.js library. First, we will create a new Nuxt.

js project and install the required dependencies. Next, we will create a new Vue.js project and install the required dependencies. Finally, we will configure both projects to use our blog content source and start writing our blog posts.

Creating a New Nuxt.js Project

To create a new Nuxt.js project, first go to and download the latest release of the Nuxt.js framework onto your machine (we used version 2.

5 in this article). After downloading the Nuxt.js framework, open up a new terminal window and navigate to the downloaded directory (in our case this was cd Downloads/nuxt-2.5). Then, run the following command to launch the Nuxt installer:.

npm installnuxt — save

This command will install all of the required dependencies for our blog project, including Nuxt itself as well as Vuex and VuetifyJS libraries. Once the installation process is complete, we can move on to creating our new Nuxt.js project by running the following command:

nuxt create nuxt-blog

This command will launch the Nuxt wizard which will help us create our new Nuxt.js project with a basic configuration already in place. We can choose to use either a static or an injectable server for our blog, as well as specify a name for our project (in our case, we chose nuxt-blog).

After clicking on NEXT, we can provide some additional information about our project such as its language (we chose JavaScript), its license (we chose MIT), and its public URL (which will be used as the default home page for our blog). Finally, after clicking on Finish, our new Nuxt.js project should be created!.

Configuring Our New Nuxt.js Project for Use with Vue.js

Now that our new NuXT.JS project has been created, we need to configure it so that it can be used with VueJS! To do this, first open up your newly created nuxt-blog directory in your terminal window and run the following command:

nuxt config set default mode:server — type=injectable

This command will set up our new NuXT.JS project so that it uses an injectable server instead of a static one (which is what was configured when we created our project in step 1 of this article). We can now start writing code in our nuxt-blog directory using either JavaScript or TypeScript — whichever language we are more comfortable with! However, before we do this, we need to install some additional dependencies using npm:

npm install vuex –save npm install vuetify –save

These two dependencies will allow us to use Vuex (a library that helps us manage stateful components in our applications) and VuetifyJS (an elegant frontend library for manipulating elements onscreen) in our blog project! Now that these dependencies are installed, let’s start writing some code! First, let’s add a simple stateless component to store some information about our blog post:

import { Component } from ‘@nuxt/components’ ; import { Store } from ‘vuex’ ; @Component ({ selector : ‘my-component’ , template : `

` }) export class PostComponent implements OnInit { store : Store ; } ;

This code snippet will simply import Vuex and also add a new stateless component called Store to our project which stores information about each individual post that is written on our blog! We also need to add an event handler for when somebody clicks on one of those posts:

export default { methods : { postClicked () { this . store . dispatch ( ‘postClicked’ ); } } } ;

This event handler simply dispatches a “postClicked” event which will be handled by Vuex when somebody clicks on one of our posts! Now let’s write some code inside of that event handler which will actually retrieve information about the post that was clicked:
The first thing that we are going to do is access the post’s data property which is defined inside of Vuex as an object containing all of the data associated with that particular post:Next, we are going to use Vuex’s computed property function to getter all of the data from inside of that object and display it inside of an HTML element inside of my-component :Finally, we are going to bind this newly created HTML element directly onto the DOM node for my-component so that it appears as part of its template automatically:All Done! Our final code looks like this:.
