Introduction to Nuxt Plugins

Learn about Nuxt plugins, how they work, and how to create and use them in the projects.

A Nuxt plugin defines a set of functionalities that can be added to an application to extend its capabilities. The use of a plugin aids the reusability of functions across the application and can also be used to define Nuxt hooks as well.

A Nuxt plugin is defined using the global method defineNuxtPlugin. This method can take in either an object or a callback function. In this course, we will use the callback function method to define the plugins used in the project. The callback takes in the NuxtApp object as an argument. The NuxtApp provides access to the Vue instance and Nuxt-specific functionality, such as the router, config, context, etc.
