API: The rootDir Property

  • Type: String
  • Default: process.cwd()

Define the workspace directory of your Nuxt.js application.

This property will be overwritten by nuxt commands if an argument is passed to them. Eg running nuxt ./my-app/ will set the rootDir to the absolute path of ./my-app/ from the current/working directory

Because of that its normally not needed to configure this option unless you will use Nuxt.js programmatically.

Both `rootDir` as the package root containing the `node_modules` directory need to be within the same directory tree to be able to [resolve dependencies](https://nodejs.org/api/modules.html#modules_all_together). See the [`srcDir` option](/api/configuration-srcdir) for examples of directory structure when thats not the case
