Nuxt.js CMS example

DatoCMS Preview API = content editors happiness

Thanks to Nuxt.js server-rendering capabilities you can easily deploy a clone of your production website that shows real-time previews of the changes you make to any content stored in Dato CMS (text, images, videos). Give it a try, it's magic!

// pages/movie.vue
Release date: {{movie.releaseDate}}
import { Image, toHead } from "vue-datocms";
import { request } from "~/lib/datocms";
const query = `{
movie(filter: { title: { eq: "Inception" } }) {
actors {
export default {
components: {
"datocms-image": Image
async asyncData({ params }) {
const endpoint = node.env.PREVIEW_MODE ?
'' :
return await request(endpoint, query);

Worldwide CDN

Nuxt.js scales infinitely and so your CMS should be

If your content is always fetched from a single geographical location, there’s no point in building a website with a serverless architecture.

Dato CMS offers your content from a CDN with edges all around the globe, minimizing latency and making your Nuxt.js project as fast as you would expect!

A component-centric CMS, just like Nuxt.js

Thanks to Vue, Nuxt.js makes using components easy right from the get-go, and you should expect the same from your CMS. A component-based approach allows developers to clearly divide work amongst themselves and progress without having to rely on each other every step of the way.
