How to setup a vue 3 project

Step 1: Install Node.js

Make sure you have Node.js installed on your machine. You can download and install it from the official Node.js website (

Step 2: Install Vue CLI

Open your terminal or command prompt and run the following command to install the Vue CLI globally on your machine:

npm install -g @vue/cli

Step 3: Create a new Vue project

Navigate to the directory where you want to create your Vue project using the terminal or command prompt. Then, run the following command to create a new Vue project:

vue create project-name

Replace project-name with the desired name of your project. You can choose the default preset or manually select features as per your project requirements.

Step 4: Navigate to the project directory

After the project is created, navigate into the project directory using the following command:

cd project-name

Step 5: Start the development server

To start the development server and run your Vue 3 project, use the following command:

npm run serve

This will start the server and provide you with a local development URL, usually http://localhost:8080. Open this URL in your browser, and you should see your Vue 3 project running.

Step 6: Customize the project

You can now open your project in a code editor and start customizing it. The main entry point of your project is the src/main.js file, where you can modify the Vue instance or import additional libraries.

You can create new components in the src/components directory and use them in your app. The root component is usually located in src/App.vue.

Step 7: Build the project for production

When you’re ready to build your Vue 3 project for production, run the following command:

npm run build

This command will generate a production-ready build of your project in the dist directory. You can then deploy the files from this directory to a web server or a hosting platform of your choice.

That’s it! You’ve successfully set up a Vue 3 project. Now you can start building your application using Vue’s powerful features and components.
