Getting Started

Using Nuxt DevTools in your Nuxt project is only a command away.


Nuxt DevTools requires Nuxt v3.9.0 or higher.

Auto Install

You just need to go to your nuxt.config file and set devtools to true:

export default defineNuxtConfig({
  devtools: { enabled: true },

Nuxt will automatically install the DevTools module for you.

Install using Nuxi

You can opt-in Nuxt DevTools per-project by going to the project root and run:

npx nuxi@latest devtools enable

Restart your Nuxt server and open your app in browser. Click the Nuxt icon on the bottom (or press Shift + Alt / ⇧ Shift + ⌥ Option + D) to toggle the DevTools.

If you using nvm or other Node version managers, we suggest to run the enable command again after switching Node version.

Similarly, you can disable it per-project by running:

npx nuxi@latest devtools disable

Install Manually

Nuxt DevTools is currently provided as a module (might be changed in the future). If you prefer, you can also install it locally, which will be activated for all your team members.

npm i -D @nuxt/devtools
export default defineNuxtConfig({
  modules: [

Edge Release Channel

Similar to Nuxt's Edge Channel, DevTools also offers an edge release channel, that automatically releases for every commit to main branch.

You can opt-in to the edge release channel by running:

  "devDependencies": {
--    "@nuxt/devtools": "^0.1.0"
++    "@nuxt/devtools": "npm:@nuxt/devtools-edge@latest"

Remove lockfile (package-lock.json, yarn.lock, or pnpm-lock.yaml) and reinstall dependencies.

Module Options

To configure Nuxt DevTools, you can pass the devtools options.

export default defineNuxtConfig({
  devtools: {
    // Enable devtools (default: true)
    enabled: true,
    // VS Code Server options
    vscode: {},
    // ...other options

For all options available, please refer to TSDocs in your IDE, or the type definition file.
