Nuxt.js: Key Features for Developing AppsHIGH LEVEL TENDENCIES, WEB DEVELOPMENT.
What is Nuxt.js
Nuxt.js backend and features
Nuxt.js has different APIs and backend services that may be sufficient for some applications. However, if custom backend functionalities such as databases are needed, the best option is to build a separate backend or a BaaS such as Supabase.
Nuxt.js is a platform that has several features that improve the performance of Vue.js, the following are the most outstanding ones:
Vue.js is a framework that allows server-side rendering, however, a large amount of code is required for its configuration. Nuxt.js takes care of eliminating this code, simplifying the process considerably.
Generation of static sites
You can get the benefits of server-side rendering (SSR) without worrying about the tasks involved.
It allows splitting all the code into different packages to load only what is needed on the client side, which improves performance and decreases the size of the application.
Modular code base
Nuxt.js code is fully reusable.
The automation of the component import process, so developers only have to focus on writing the content and Nuxt.js will take care of the rest.
Advantages and disadvantages of Nuxt.js
With Nuxt.js you can create fully scalable applications, thanks to the rendering options it offers.
Asynchronous data loading on the server side is automatic.
Thanks to its server-side rendering capabilities, it improves application performance.
Enables rapid development, ideal for building applications under the MVP approach.
Very useful and popular add-ons are not available.
The documentation is insufficient.
The server can be overloaded by high application traffic.
Vue's community is much smaller than that of other frameworks, so troubleshooting can be slower.
Which tools integrate with Nuxt.js
Many tools can be integrated into Nuxt.js:: Strapi, imgix, Supabase, Bulder and Localazy, among others.

Nuxt.js and Vue
On the other hand, Nuxt.js is a Vue framework designed to enhance the functionalities of the latter, adding other features, making them a very powerful combination that provides high performance and simplicity when developing applications.
Approach and Differences between Next.js and Nuxt.js
While Nuxt.js is a framework built on top of Vue.js, which provides tools and functions created to facilitate the development of complex applications, Next.js comes from React, and focuses on providing the basic and essential elements, allowing more customization during development.
Differences between Next.js and Nuxt.js:
Nuxt.js uses the Vuex pattern, which is characterized as a centralized state manager, can access data from multiple components, aggregate actions and create mutations that make it easy to track the state of the application.
Next.js, on the other hand, uses the Redux pattern, which is based on component management, where each component has its own state and must use reducers to access data from other components.
Nuxt.js makes work easier, as it provides modules to integrate new technologies. In contrast, Next.js relies on libraries built on top of React, which are not ready to use, nor are they integrated.
While Nuxt.js must be configured to be able to use Webpack code splitting.
