How to deploy with Now?


Now V2

To deploy with Now V2, the Nuxt.js team and contributors worked on an official @nuxtjs/now-builder package.

All you have to do is to setup a now.json file:

  "version": 2,
  "builds": [
      "src": "nuxt.config.js",
      "use": "@nuxtjs/now-builder",
      "config": {}

You can learn more and see examples on

Now V1 (legacy)

To deploy with Now V1 a package.json like follows is recommended:

  "name": "my-app",
  "dependencies": {
    "nuxt": "latest"
  "scripts": {
    "dev": "nuxt",
    "build": "nuxt build",
    "start": "nuxt start"

Then run now and enjoy!

Note: we recommend putting .nuxt in .npmignore or .gitignore.
