v1.0.0

1.0.0 is out! :tada:

It's been a long run and we are really proud to announce the official 1.0 release. Thank you so much for your support and we are looking forward to hear your feedback :heart:

Medium article: https://medium.com/@nuxt_js/nuxt-js-1-0-is-out-bab1af459972

Breaking changes

:warning: Minimum Node.js version required for Nuxt.js is also increased to 8.0.0 (Current LTS). This allows notable security and performance improvements for both Nuxt and SSR rendering by using native async/awaits and making development easier. So don't forget to upgrade Node to the latest version in both server and your local environment ;)

We have a new internal hook system now, some modules can be broken with 1.0 if they were relying on this.nuxt.plugin(), instead, they will have to use this.hook(), see module hooks documentation.

We removed the internal extensions for .ts, if you want to use TypeScript into Nuxt.js, we recommend you to check out our typescript example.

Deprecation

For the below depreciation, it will still work but you will get a warning to tell you to change your code to the new value.

For better bundling experience for server-side and client-side, we deprecated context.isClient and context.isServer in flavor of process.client and process.server. Since these variables comes from our webpack configuration, it will optimize your client-side and server-side bundles magically :nail_care:

We also deprecated dev property inside build.extend() in flavour of isDev.

Features

  • We are now ignoring files starting with a - in front of its filename (example: pages/-ignored.vue) (PR #2417)
  • Layout transitions #1620
  • Add route.meta (array of matched page .meta) into context, useful for middleware (see details)
  • Middleware: you can now define middleware as a function, see example
  • Store: you now have access to this.$router and this.app inside your store actions!
  • You can set body: true, in your head.script[] to move your scripts at the end of <body> (see example)
  • nuxt generate --no-build: Useful for conditions when just dynamic routes are being changed. This makes incremental builds much faster.
  • Hooks: you can extend even further Nuxt by using hooks now, the documentation is coming soon.
  • New configuration: build.styleResources, check out our style-resources example.

Improvements

  • Upgrade Vue to 2.5.x #1723 #1868
  • Upgrade to Vue-Router & Vuex to 3.0
  • No more babel warning #1698
  • Adds support for folders in /layouts #1865
  • Mode spa: Respect mounted hook on first render (fix #1629)
  • Add --version & -v flag to nuxt binary (you can do npx nuxt -v to know which version of nuxt.js you are using in your project) #1840
  • Improve error message when a plugin is not found #1846
  • Add ENV variable into app.html, corresponds to env from your nuxt.config.js
  • Context is shared across plugins and pages (useful for axios interceptor with redirect), it also improves perfs!
  • Improved plugins system
  • Better nuxt dev experience with faster and more stable reloads
  • SSR performance improvements thanks to node async/awaits
  • Allow redirects to external URL (#2265)
  • Support options.modulesDir as Array
  • Upgraded uglifyjs with parrallel options as default for faster builds

v1.0.0-rc8

Features

Improvements

v0.10.0

āœ‹ Thanks a lot to all the contributors and people helping us to make Nuxt.js better! āœ‹

This should be the last release with a breaking change before the 1.0! You can see our roadmap here.

Breaking changes

  • data is now asyncData for pages components, it's not asyncData which receives the context and can be asynchronous, this is to respect the vue.js methods. It also fix the mixins with data. If you used the context in your data methods, please rename them to asyncData starting from this release. See updated documentation.
  • Static Generated: generate.routeParams is replaced by generate.routes which has to be an array of dynamics routes called by Nuxt, see updated documentation.

Features

  • Nuxt.js use Vue 2.2.5 and its rendering feature for CSS, no more CSS extracted, only the strict minimum CSS is now included in every page server-rendered!
  • Cache for bundle with hash name are now available, combined with the build.publicPath option, it's a perfect combo for hosting your .nuxt/dist/ files on any CDN!
  • Use the official babel-preset-vue-app for babel default configuration (suggestion by @cj in #271). You can now write JSX directly into your Vue components, see hello-world-jsx example.
  • New option build.publicPath, useful to set CDN url for production deployment or changing the /_nuxt/ path if you don't like it.
  • New option router.mode, let's you define the vue-router mode (default to 'history') (@cj via #272)
  • Add ~middleware alias
  • We can now specify a custom layout for the layouts/error.vue component, see #172
  • The app template is now customisable! Read more on the app.html documentation.
  • nuxt build accept now a -c or --config-file option now (@PierreRambaud via #392)
  • New option: generate.minify to customize html-minifier options.
  • We can now import CSS files directly in <script>, making Nuxt.js compatible with more external libraries.

Improvements

  • nuxt.render now always returns a Promise, even in dev mode when the build is not ready yet
  • Cleaner build/error outputs for terminal (@cj via #274)
  • Nuxt.js prefetch every code-splitted to improve the loading performance when navigating, you have nothing to do, simply upgrade and your app will be faster! (you can disable it via the nuxt.config.js with performance.prefetch: false)
  • We also added gzip support in production (you can disable it via the nuxt.config.js with performance.gzip)
  • store.replaceState(window.__NUXT__.state) is now made before importing the plugin. import store from '~store' in plugins (client-side) will have the store filled.
  • Add duration property in transition

Bug fixes

  • When switching layout, the page component are created only once (fix #214)
  • extendRoutes works with generate + windows paths (fix #275)
  • Middleware are called from error page and the layout is respected when redirected (fix #389)

Examples

v0.9.9

Bug fixes

  • Fix regression from v0.9.8 of routes order (#235)

v0.9.8

Features

  • The middleware feature is out šŸ”„ ! Read more on the documentation.

You can check the example-auth0 repository to see a real-life example. Otherwise, you can check the i18n example or the middleware example.

  • Wildcard route: _.vue will now create a route { path: '/*', name: 'all' }

Improvements

  • ~store links now to the store file which exports the vuex store instance, useful to require it in plugins to extend it, same for ~router. See documentation.
  • A progress bar is now displayed when building the application (thanks to progress-bar-webpack-plugin)

nuxt-build-progress-bar

  • No need to use a root div for the <nuxt> component (@sirlancelot via #229)

Bug fixes

  • Fix regression from v0.9.7: data was not called anymore when query changed, it's now fixed.
  • Fix bug: routes generated by file names were in the wrong order.
