Excerpt

If you are utilizing the excerpt feature, you can display the content of your excerpt using the following model:

<template>  <article>    <h1>{{ page.title }}</h1>    <nuxt-content :document="{ body: page.excerpt }" />  </article></template><script>export default {  async asyncData ({ $content }) {    const page = await $content('home').fetch()    return {      page    }  }}</script>

Root Element

<nuxt-content> component will add a div element as the root of the content by default. You can change this by setting the tag prop. Below example will use article as the root element.

<nuxt-content :document="doc" tag="article">

Style

Depending on what you're using to design your app, you may need to write some style to properly display the markdown.

<nuxt-content> component will automatically add a .nuxt-content class. You can use it to customize your styles:

.nuxt-content h1 {  /* my custom h1 style */}

You can find an example in the theme-docs main.css file. You can also take a look at the TailwindCSS Typography plugin to style your markdown content like we do in the @nuxt/content-theme-docs.

Live Editing

Available in version >= v1.4.0

In development, you can edit your content by double-clicking on the <nuxt-content> component. A textarea will allow you to edit the content of the current file and will save it on the file-system.
