Question: How Do You Implement a Sitemap in a Nuxt.js Application?


Nuxt.js is a framework for creating Vue.js applications, and it offers an easy way to generate a sitemap through a module. Here's how you can implement a sitemap in your Nuxt.js application:

  1. Install Sitemap Module: First, you need to add the @nuxtjs/sitemap module to your project:
npm install @nuxtjs/sitemap
  1. Configure Your nuxt.config.js: After installation, you need to include the sitemap module in your nuxt.config.js file and configure it according to your needs. For example:
export default { modules: [ '@nuxtjs/sitemap' ], sitemap: { hostname: '', gzip: true, routes: async () => { // Fetch or generate your routes here return [ '/page-1/', '/page-2/', ]; } } }

In the above configuration:

  • hostname is required and is the base URL of your application.
  • gzip enables compressed sitemap files.
  • routes should return an array of all dynamic routes in your application that are not automatically resolved by Nuxt.js.
  1. Dynamic Routes: If you have dynamic routes generated from a backend API or markdown files, you can fetch them inside the routes function and return them so they will be included in the sitemap.

  2. Generating Your Sitemap: When running the nuxt generate command, Nuxt.js will create a static version of your application, which includes the sitemap.xml file at your static root.

  3. Deploy: Once generated, make sure your sitemap.xml is accessible via

With the @nuxtjs/sitemap module, generating a sitemap for your Nuxt.js application is straightforward and highly configurable to your SEO needs.
