The plugins Property

  • Type: Array
    • Items: String or Object

If the item is an object, the properties are:

  • src: String (path of the file)
  • ssr: Boolean (default to true) If false, the file will be included only on the client-side.

The plugins property lets you add vue.js plugins easily to your main application.

Example (nuxt.config.js):

module.exports = {
  plugins: ['~/plugins/vue-notifications']

Then, we need to create a file in plugins/vue-notifications.js:

import Vue from 'vue'
import VueNotifications from 'vue-notifications'


All the paths defined in the plugins property will be imported before initializing the main application.

Every time you need to use Vue.use(), you should create a file in plugins/ and add its path to plugins in nuxt.config.js.

To learn more how to use the plugins, see the guide documentation.
