In this article, we are going to learn how we can show time in NuxtJs. Nuxt.js is a free and open-source web application framework based on Vue.js, Node.js, Webpack, and Babel.js. Nuxt is inspired by Next.js, which is a framework of similar purpose, based on React.js.

Approach: To show time in nuxtjs we are going to use the vue-time package. The vue-time package helps us to add a time anywhere in our app. So first, we will install the vue-time package and then we will create a vue-time.js file in our plugins folder then we will add the time in our app.

Create NuxtJS Application: 

Step 1: You can create a new NuxtJs project using the below command:

npx create-nuxt-app gfg

Step 2: Now navigate to your app using the following command:

cd gfg

Step 3: Install the required package. Now we will install the vue-time package using the below command:

npm i vue-time

Project Structure: It will look like this.

Step 4: Create a new file with the name ‘vue-time.js‘ inside the plugins folder. After creating the file add the below content in the file.


import Vue from 'vue'
import vueTime from 'vue-time'
Vue.component('vue-time', vueTime)

Step 5: Inside the nuxt.config.js file add the below line inside the plugins section:


plugins: [
    { src: '~/plugins/vue-time', ssr: false },

Step 6: Now to add time inside our app add the below lines inside the index.vue file in pages folder.


    <h4>GeeksforGeeks - NuxtJs Time</h4>
    <vue-time :show-date="showDate" :
               show-day="showDay" :
  export default {
    data() {
      return {
        showDate: false,
        showDay: false,
        showTime: true,
        options: {
          hour12: true,
          era: 'long',
          weekday: 'long',
          year: 'numeric',
          month: 'numeric',
          day: 'numeric'

Explanation: In the above example first, we created the vue-time file in the plugin folder and added the path in nuxt.config.js file. Now we can use the vue-time package anywhere in our app. To add the time we used the <vue-time> component in our index.vue file.  

Steps to run the application: Run the below command in the terminal to run the app.

npm run dev
