Manual Setup

@nuxtjs/storybook provides a clean and simple way to integrate Storybook with NuxtJS. If you want to config Storybook by yourself or do things that is beyond the scope of this module follow these steps.

Before starting, take a look at Storybook's official documentation about Configuration

User eject command

Using eject command is the easiest way to create and customize Storybook config.

yarn nuxt storybook eject
npx nuxt storybook eject

After running eject command you'll see storybook directory in your project's root dirctory.


Create storybook directory

In root directory of your project create storybook directory. This directory will become your storybook's entry point.

Create main.js

Create a new file inside storybook directory called main.js, This is where you can import your stories. A sample main.js files could be like this:

module.exports = {
  webpackFinal(config, options) {
    config = options.nuxtStorybookConfig.webpackFinal(config, options)
    // add your awesome
    return config;
  stories: [

Note that if you want to use Nuxt features in your storybook (like store or axios module and ...) you need to define a webpackFinal function in main.js and put this line config = options.nuxtStorybookConfig.webpackFinal(config, options) in the first line of function.

Create preview.js

Create another file called preview.js inside storybook directory and import Nuxt helpers in it.

import '~~/.nuxt-storybook/storybook/preview.js'

All done, just start storybook and make your changes.

yarn nuxt-storybook
npx nuxt-storybook
