Nuxt.js analytics

It's easy to get Fathom Analytics working with Nuxt.js, and we've been fortunate to have customers help us write this documentation.

Note: If you are using Nuxt 2, a member of the Fathom community built a Fathom Analytics plugin for Nuxt 2:

Step 1: Install the Vue plugin

One of our customers, UBC Launch Pad, has put together a plugin that will work with Vue. The unofficial plugin can be found here. To install, run the following command:

npm i @ubclaunchpad/vue-fathom

Step 2: Creating your Nuxt plugin

You should have a plugins folder, if not, create one in your projects root directory. Once done create a fathom.client.js file, this tells Nuxt to not execute this server side, and paste the following code inside it:

import { defineNuxtPlugin } from "#app";
import VueFathom from "@ubclaunchpad/vue-fathom";
 
export default defineNuxtPlugin((nuxtApp) => {
nuxtApp.vueApp.use(VueFathom, {
siteID: "YourSiteID",
settings: {
spa: "history",
},
});
});

Step 3: Additional configuration

Under the hood, this plugin uses fathom-client, and you can see more configuration options here.

And now you're ready to roll!
