nuxt-seomatic-meta   NPM

Icon

If you're using Nuxt.js with Craft CMS headless then there's a good chance you'll be aiming for some decent SEO. A custom solution would take too much time, so a great alternative is to request the SEO data from SEOmatic via GraphQL.

This module grabs the SEOmatic data and converts it to a format that Nuxt.js expects in it's head property.

Getting started

Before starting, I'll assume you've installed Craft (>=3.3), SEOmatic (>=3.2.28) and enabled Crafts GraphQL API.

⚠️ Note: Craft can't be in headlessMode - Headless mode won't work with SEOmatic as we need to match the URI which gets turned off when headlessMode is enabled.

⚠️ Note: Within Craft > GraphQL > Schemas, be sure to adjust the scope to the right entries in the GraphQL schema - I find it easy to forget that.

  1. Install nuxt-seomatic-meta via yarn or npm:

    yarn add nuxt-seomatic-meta
    # or: npm install nuxt-seomatic-meta
  2. Add the seomatic-meta and axios plugins to your modules section in nuxt.config.js:

    /*
     ** Nuxt.js modules
     */
    modules: [
      'nuxt-seomatic-meta',
      '@nuxtjs/axios',
      // '@nuxtjs/dotenv',
    ],

    '@nuxtjs/axios': Axios is used to connect to the Craft CMS API - it's automatically installed as a dependency of nuxt-seomatic-meta so you'll just need to add it to the array.

    '@nuxtjs/dotenv' (optional): To specify your GraphQL connection variables in a .env file then install the nuxt dotenv module.

  3. Now specify the GraphQL connection settings - you have two options:

    a) Add the connection settings to an .env file in your project root (if you're using the @nuxtjs/dotenv module):

    # Craft installation url
    BACKEND_URL=https://YOUR_DOMAIN
    
    # GraphQL api path
    GRAPHQL_PATH=/api
    
    # GraphQL bearer token (Not required if API is public)
    GRAPHQL_TOKEN=ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET

    b) Or add the connection settings to a new seomaticMeta object in nuxt.config.js:

    /*
     ** Seomatic meta config
     */
    seomaticMeta: {
      backendUrl: 'http://YOUR_DOMAIN',
      graphqlPath: '/api',
      graphqlToken: 'ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET',
    },
  4. Lastly, add some code to start the API request and supply the result to Nuxt's head property. This is added to your pages in pages/*.vue:

    <script>
    export default {
      //...
    
      // Get Seomatic data from Craft by route
      async asyncData({ app, route }) {
        return {
          headData: await app.seomaticMeta(route)
        };
      },
    
      // Supply the data to the Nuxt head property
      head() {
        return this.headData;
      }
    };
    </script>

Configuration

Options can be supplied in a seomaticMeta object in nuxt.config.js:

seomaticMeta: {
  debug: true,
  routeRemap: [
    {
      path: '/',
      getFrom: 'homepage',
    },
    {
      path: 'another-route',
      getFrom: 'gets-meta-from-this-route-instead',
    },
  ],
  backendUrl: 'http://YOUR_DOMAIN',
  graphqlPath: '/api',
  graphqlToken: 'ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET',
},
Name Type Default Description
debug boolean false Display the GraphQL data and other useful feedback in your console when using npm run generate.
routeRemap array [] Custom remapping of route data so you can grab the SEOmatic data from another page.
Eg: Your Nuxt homepage has a route of / but you want data from a page in Craft with a slug of homepage.
backendUrl string `` The url for your Craft installation.
This can also be defined in your .env under the key BACKEND_URL.
graphqlPath string `` The path to your GraphQL API.
This can also be defined in your .env under the key GRAPHQL_PATH.
graphqlToken string `` The token for your secured GraphQL endpoint.
This can also be defined in your .env under the key GRAPHQL_TOKEN.

Note: .env variables require the dotenv module.
