Getting started with NuxtJS

This how-to guide describes how to integrate THEOplayer with NuxtJS framework.

Instructions

  1. Open your favorite IDE and then a terminal and install Vue CLI component:
npx create-nuxt-app theoplayer-nuxtjs-sample
  1. Follow the installation process (please note these instructions assume you’ve chosen npm as a module packager)

  2. Once the app is created, execute the following commands:

cd theoplayer-nuxtjs-sample
npm install
npm run dev
  1. The default application should be served under: http://localhost:3000/

  2. Reference the THEOplayer Web SDK by editing file nuxt.config.js like the following:

export default {
mode: "spa",
/*
** Headers of the page
*/
head: {
title: process.env.npm_package_name || "",
meta: [
{ charset: "utf-8" },
{ name: "viewport", content: "width=device-width, initial-scale=1" },
{
hid: "description",
name: "description",
content: process.env.npm_package_description || ""
}
],
link: [
{ rel: "icon", type: "image/x-icon", href: "/favicon.ico" },
{
rel: "stylesheet",
type: "text/css",
href: "//cdn.theoplayer.com/dash/theoplayer/ui.css"
}
],
script: [
{
type: "text/javascript",
src: "//cdn.theoplayer.com/dash/theoplayer/THEOplayer.js"
}
]
},
/*
** Customize the progress-bar color
*/
loading: { color: "#fff" },
/*
** Global CSS
*/
css: [],
/*
** Plugins to load before mounting the App
*/
plugins: [],
/*
** Nuxt.js dev-modules
*/
buildModules: [
// Doc: https://github.com/nuxt-community/eslint-module
"@nuxtjs/eslint-module"
],
/*
** Nuxt.js modules
*/
modules: [],
/*
** Build configuration
*/
build: {
/*
** You can extend webpack config here
*/
extend(config, ctx) {}
}
};
  1. Add the new component named Player.vue under this path: components/Player.vue
<template>
<div
ref="theoplayer"
class="theoplayer-container video-js theoplayer-skin vjs-16-9 THEOplayer"
></div>
</template>

<script>
import { mapState } from "vuex";
export default {
computed: mapState({
source: (state) => state.source
}),
mounted() {
this.playerInit();
},
methods: {
playerInit() {
const player = new window.THEOplayer.Player(this.$refs.theoplayer, {
fluid: true,
libraryLocation: "//cdn.theoplayer.com/dash/theoplayer/"
});
player.source = {
sources: this.source
};
}
}
};
</script>
<style>
.THEOplayer {
width: 50%;
margin: 0 auto;
}

.video-js.vjs-16-9 {
padding-top: 28.12%;
width: 50%;
}
</style>
  1. Please note that vuex is used to pass the player source, for this purpose add index.js file under this path: store/index.js with following content:
export const state = () => ({
source: null
});

export const mutations = {
setSource(state, source) {
state.source = source;
}
};
  1. Now, we are ready to reference the player component in the index.vue like following:
<template>
<div class="container">
<div>
<logo />
<player />
<h1 class="title">theoplayer-nuxtjs-sample</h1>
<h2 class="subtitle">THEOplayer nuxtjs sample app</h2>
<div class="links">
<a href="https://nuxtjs.org/" target="_blank" class="button--green">
Documentation
</a>
<a
href="https://github.com/nuxt/nuxt.js"
target="_blank"
class="button--grey"
>
GitHub
</a>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</template>
<script>
import Logo from "~/components/Logo.vue";
import Player from "~/components/Player.vue";

export default {
components: {
Logo,
Player
},
created() {
this.$store.commit("setSource", [
{
type: "application/x-mpegurl",
src: "//cdn.theoplayer.com/video/elephants-dream/playlist.m3u8"
}
]);
}
};
</script>

<style>
.container {
margin: 0 auto;
min-height: 100vh;
display: flex;
justify-content: center;
align-items: center;
text-align: center;
}

.title {
font-family:
"Quicksand",
"Source Sans Pro",
-apple-system,
BlinkMacSystemFont,
"Segoe UI",
Roboto,
"Helvetica Neue",
Arial,
sans-serif;
display: block;
font-weight: 300;
font-size: 100px;
color: #35495e;
letter-spacing: 1px;
}

.subtitle {
font-weight: 300;
font-size: 42px;
color: #526488;
word-spacing: 5px;
padding-bottom: 15px;
}

.links {
padding-top: 15px;
}
</style>
  1. This should result in a page which includes the THEOplayer component.

Build Setup

# install dependencies
$ npm run install

# serve with hot reload at localhost:3000
$ npm run dev

# build for production and launch server
$ npm run build
$ npm run start

# generate static project
$ npm run generate
