Layouts directory

Nuxt provides a customizable layouts framework you can use throughout your application, ideal for extracting common UI or code patterns into reusable layout components.

Page layouts are placed in the layouts/ directory and will be automatically loaded via asynchronous import when used. If you create a layouts/default.vue this will be used for all pages in your app. Other layouts are used by setting a layout property as part of your component options.

If you have only single layout for application, you can alternatively use app.vue .

Example: a custom layout

-| layouts/
---| custom.vue

In your layout files, you'll need to use <slot /> to define where the page content of your layout will be loaded. For example:

<template>
  <div>
    Some shared layout content:
    <slot />
  </div>
</template>

Given the example above, you can use a custom layout like this:

<script>
export default {
  layout: "custom",
};
</script>

Example: using with slots

You can also take full control (for example, with slots) by using the <NuxtLayout> component (which is globally available throughout your application) and set layout: false in your component options.

<template>
  <NuxtLayout name="custom">
    <template #header> Some header template content. </template>

    The rest of the page
  </NuxtLayout>
</template>

<script>
export default {
  layout: false,
};
</script>
