I have been using Nuxt JS for quite a while. It just hasn’t ever come to my mind that I need to upgrade create-nuxt-app.
As a result, all my Nuxt projects, including those I created yesterday, have been stuck in a very old version for a long time. And I didn’t even notice it until today.
The latest version of Nuxt at the time of writing is v2.15.7. Check https://nuxtjs.org/docs/release-notes for the latest version number. Compare the number with your package.json.
How to upgrade
Use this command to upgrade one specific global package:
npm update -g <package_name>
Use this command to upgrade all global packages:
npm update -g
I’m not sure about the technical details. But I guess npx create-nuxt-app only download the package once. It won’t get the latest version automatically.
