Content Directory

The Nuxt Content module reads the content/ directory in your project and parses .md, .yml, .csv and .json files to create a file-based CMS for your application.

Render your content with built-in components.
Query your content with a MongoDB-like API.
Use your Vue components in Markdown files with the MDC syntax.
Automatically generate your navigation.

Get Started


Install the @nuxt/content module in your project:

yarn add --dev @nuxt/content
npm install --save-dev @nuxt/content
pnpm add -D @nuxt/content

Then, add @nuxt/content to the modules section of nuxt.config.ts:

export default defineNuxtConfig({
  modules: [
  content: {

Create Content

Place your markdown files inside the content/ directory in the root directory of your project:

# Hello Content

The module automatically loads and parses them.

Render Pages

To render content pages, add a catch-all route using the ContentDoc component:

    <ContentDoc />
