Deploy Nuxt.js App

How to Deploy a Nuxt.js Site with Spheron

This guide will show you how to deploy a Nuxt.js project and get your domain up. Nuxt.js (opens in a new tab) is a free and open-source JavaScript library based on Vue.js, Node.js, Webpack, and Babel.js. Nuxt is inspired by Next.js, which is a framework of similar purpose based on React.js. The framework is advertised as a "Meta-framework for universal applications."

Deploy Nuxt.js to Spheron

Follow these steps to deploy your Nuxt.js app on Spheron.

Step 1: Put Your Nuxt.js Project Code in a Git Repo

While this feature is not new to developers, the magic of Spheron is that every push to any branch in your GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket repo triggers a new build and deployment of your project.

Step 2: Update Your Nuxt.js Project for Deploying on Decentralised Storage

Decentralized Storage needs a different configuration for the dApp to work without any issues. The only issue you will face after deploying on decentralized Storage is the routing issue. The decentralized Storage works in a hash-based system, so you need to change your routing module from BrowserRouter (e.g., to HashRouter (e.g., Once you change all the instances of browser routing to hash routing, you can now deploy your project via Spheron on any Protocol.

Step 3: Deploy using the Spheron Platform UI.

You can create a new Spheron project using the platform UI. First, visit Spheron Network (opens in a new tab) in your browser. Choose your preferred Git provider from the options as seen above and authorize Spheron to access the repo you want to deploy. In the next screen, select your Nuxt.js repo from the list. Choose your preferred protocol where you want to deploy your static build. As of now, we support Arweave, Skynet, Filecoin & Pinata. You can choose any one protocol from all 4 of them. The third screen asks for details about where to create the project and how to build it. All the settings are already pre-filled based on the suggested framework. Learn more about each build setting. Check it out here (opens in a new tab).

  1. Choose the branch to deploy from the dropdown and provide the root directory if you have a monorepo-like app structure.
  2. Set the install command to yarn install
  3. Set the build command to yarn generate
  4. Set the publish directory to dist
  5. You can add some environment variables before the build.
  6. You can change the node engine of your deployment as well.
  7. Click "Deploy"

That's All!

Now that you've deployed your Nuxt.js project on Spheron, you have all the benefits of Spheron — including a custom deployment environment, continuous deployment whenever you push to your repo, and much more — as well as the benefits of Nuxt.js like Preview Mode, Static site rendering. After deploying, your new Nuxt.js project will automatically be assigned a suffixed domain. You can then add a Custom Domain (opens in a new tab) of your choice. We're so excited to see what you build with Nuxt.js on Spheron!
