Nuxt 3.0 has been released!
With the recent release of Nuxt 3, there are several new features that developers can take advantage of to build even better applications. In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the most notable new features and how they can help you build more powerful and efficient applications.
Nuxt 3 is powered by a new server engine, Nitro. Nitro includes tools and features that make it easier to deploy your Nuxt applications, including support for serverless deployment and automatic generation of service worker files for offline support. Nitro has the ability to adapt its output format to various hosting platforms with minimal effort on your part, thanks to its built-in presets. This allows you to use the same code base to generate different output formats that are optimized for different hosting providers.
Here are some providers that requires zero-config to deploy Nuxt 3 app: Azure, Cloudflare Pages, Netlify, Stormkit, Vercel
Nuxt 3 uses Vite as a bundler to support hot module replacement and bundle code for production. The cool thing about Vite is that is uses native ES module imports to automatically perform code splitting and optimize builds.
Oh, and if you prefer webpack, it’s supported too 🙂
The ability to automatically import components and composables as needed makes the development process much more seamless and efficient. Nuxt handles the imports for you, which makes your code simpler and easier to read.
Another new feature in Nuxt 3 is improved TypeScript support. This allows you to take advantage of the powerful type checking and static analysis capabilities of TypeScript, which can help you catch errors before they become problems. Nuxt now includes built-in TypeScript types for almost all of its APIs, making it easier for developers to use TypeScript with Nuxt.
Vue 3 support and others
Nuxt 3 also includes a number of other improvements and features, such as support for the latest version of Vue.js 3 (Composition API ftw!), improved build performance, code-splitting, tree-shaking and link prefetching.
Overall, Nuxt 3 is a major update that brings a number of exciting new features and improvements to the framework. These new features make it easier for developers to build high-performance, scalable applications.
