Welcome to this course on NuxtJS, a powerful framework built on top of Vue.js that enables developers to create modern web applications with server-side rendering capabilities. In this course, you will learn how to build a complete Vue.js application with server-side rendering capabilities from the ground up using NuxtJS.

Who is this course for?

This course is for developers who want to learn how to use NuxtJS to build modern web applications. No prior experience with NuxtJS is required.


This is a beginner-level course, and, to fully benefit from it, you should meet the following prerequisites:

  • Strong knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript: As this course will cover advanced topics, such as server-side rendering, it is essential to have a strong foundation in web development fundamentals.
  • Beginner-level experience with Vue.js: Prior experience with Vue.js is required because NuxtJS is built on top of it. Knowledge of Vue.js concepts, such as components, directives, and state management, will be beneficial. Some lessons have also been added to refresh your knowledge of these concepts.
  • Basic experience with Node.js: It is good to have an understanding of Node.js basics, such as modules, file system operations, and the event loop.
  • Understanding of web server concepts: Basic knowledge of web servers, Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), and RESTful APIs will be helpful in understanding how NuxtJS renders and serves content.
  • Basic understanding of the Vuetify component library: You will be using a component library called Vuetify to beautify your project’s UI, so it is good to have basic knowledge of it.
  • Basic understanding of TypeScript: Basic knowledge of TypeScript will be good because it will be used in your project to add type safety and improve code organization.
