Deploy a NuxtJS Application

Getting an application running on Fly is essentially working out how to package it as a deployable image. Once packaged it can be deployed to the Fly infrastructure to run on the global application platform.

In this guide we'll learn how to deploy a NuxtJS application on Fly.

You can deploy your NuxtJS app on Fly with minimal effort, our CLI will do the heavy lifting. You can use your existing NuxtJS app or you can create one using the tutorial then come back here to deploy your app.

Generate the NuxtJS App

If you just want to see how Fly deployment works, follow these steps.

First, install flyctl, your Fly app command center, and sign up to Fly if you haven't already.

Now let's launch your NuxtJS app.

cd hello-nuxt
fly launch
Creating app in /Users/me/hello-nuxt
Scanning source code

That's it! Run fly open to see your deployed app in action.

Try a few other commands:

  • fly logs - Tail your application logs
  • fly ssh console - Open a terminal on your VM
