# 2. Bootstrap frontend application

Let start with the frontend. In that phase we will provide frontend application based on Nuxt.js.

# 1. Nuxt.js installation

The easiest way to start is just use the CLI which we provided.

# Scaffold project

Run in the console and follow with the instruction.

$ yarn create nuxt-typo3 <project-name>

it will ask you some questions:

  1. Project name - provide name for package.json
  2. Project description - provide description for package.json
  3. Author name - provide author for package.json
  4. Choose the package manager:
  • Yarn
  • Npm
  1. Choose UI framework:
  • None (feel free to add one later)
  • Bootstrap
  • Vuetify
  • Bulma
  • Tailwind
  • Element UI
  • Ant Design Vue
  • Buefy
  • iView
  • Tachyons
  1. Choose between integrated server-side frameworks
  • None (Nuxt default server)
  • Express
  • Koa
  • Hapi
  • Feathers
  • Micro
  • Fastify
  • Adonis (WIP)
  1. Choose Nuxt.js module
  • TYPO3 checked by default
  • Axios - Plugin for Ajax requests.
  • Progressive Web App (PWA) Support checked by default
  1. Your TYPO3 API Url - Provide your TYPO3 headless address
  2. Choose linting tools:
  • ESLint recommended
  • Prettier recommended

  1. Choose test framework:
  • None (feel free to add one later)
  • Jest
  • AVA
  1. Choose rendering mode
  • Universal (SSR) checked by default

Be aware

Be aware of the last step where you should select Universal as Nuxt mode if you want support server side rendering.

# 2. Is it works?

After scaffolind you should be able to run your application:

$ cd <project-name>
$ yarn run dev

By default it works on http://localhost:3000

# 3. Provide configuration

CLI preconfigured some settings for you, but you can check it and reconfigure your module acording to Configuration

  modules: [
    'nuxt-typo3', // register module 

  typo3: {
    baseURL: 'https://yourwebsite.com', // provide your front app domain
    api: {
      baseURL: 'https://api.yourwebsite.com' // provide API address
    i18n: {
      locales: ['en', 'pl', 'de'],
      defaultLocale: 'en'


If you use various domain for your frontend and API - please make sure that API sends responses with Access-Control-Allow-Origin header. For your local development you can use proxy-module

# Now it's time to some customize.
