nuxt.renderRoute(route, context)

Render a specific route with a given context.

  • Type: Function
  • Arguments:
    1. String : route to render
    2. Optional, Object, context given, available keys: req & res
  • Returns: Promise
    • html: String
    • error: null or Object
    • redirected: false or Object

This method should be used mostly for test purposes as well as with nuxt.renderAndGetWindow .

nuxt.renderRoute should be executed after the build process in production mode.
const { loadNuxt, build } = require('nuxt')

async function start() {
  // Get nuxt instance for start (production mode)
  // Make sure to have run `nuxt build` before running this script
  const nuxt = await loadNuxt({ for: 'start' })

  const { html, error, redirected } = await nuxt.renderRoute('/')

  // `html` will always be a string

  // `error` not null when the error layout is displayed, the error format is:
  // { statusCode: 500, message: 'My error message' }

  // `redirected` is not `false` when `redirect()` has been used in `asyncData()` or `fetch()`
  // { path: '/other-path', query: {}, status: 302 }
