Get started 

git clone https://github.com/cosmicjs/nuxtjs-website-boilerplate
cd nuxtjs-website-boilerplate
npm install

Import the bucket.json file into your Cosmic bucket. To do this go to Your Bucket > Settings > Import / Export Data. 



 Run in production 

COSMIC_BUCKET=your-bucket-slug npm start 

Go to http://localhost:3000 

Run in development 

Create a config/development.js file and match it to config/production.js with your values. 

 npm run development 

 Go to http://localhost:5000

Env vars

As it states on the Nuxt.js website, you will need to set the environment variable HOST to 0.0.0.0.  This is already done in the package.json script for you, but you could also set this on the "Set Environment Variables" section located in Your Bucket > Settings > Deploy Web App.


Config 

Because Node.js doesn't have a mail server, the contact form uses mailgun to send the email. So add the following constants in the config file.
