Nuxt 3 baseUrl + DO App Platform Paths/Routes issues


I’m trying to deploy my Nuxt 3 apps to DO App Platform. The goal is to have multiple app listen to different paths/routes on the same domain.

For now I’m playing with just one app to keep it simple. I’ve set the baseUrl in the nuxt.config.js to /path/ while also setting

in my .do/app.yaml. The issue I’m seeing is that calling /path now throws a nuxt 404 and in order to get back a 200 I need to go to /path/path which is not what I’m looking for at all. (Even then the

Hi there,

Just a quick summary in case that anyone comes across this in the future, we’ve been discussing it here:

So far, one of the suggestions has been to define your baseURL as an environment variable, eg:

  baseURL: process.env.baseUrl

That way, you will not have to hardcode the /admin value and when deploying to the App Platform, you can set the baseURL to / and the path will not be duplicated once you add the route path in your App Platform configuration.

However this seems to be an issue with the static files which might be fixable using assetPrefix.
