Setup Nuxt v3 with Content v2 (Markdown pages)

Create a blog with Nuxt v3

If you have yet to create a nuxt project (it will install the necessary package with configuration)

npx nuxi init [name] -t contentcd [name]npm install

Else, you would do it manually

npm install --save-dev @nuxt/content

Edit nuxt.config.ts

// default defineNuxtConfig({  modules: [    '@nuxt/content'  ],  content: {    //    highlight: {      theme: 'github-light',      preload: ['python', 'kotlin', 'java', 'javascript', 'json', 'bash']    }  }})

Edit app.vue

<template>  <NuxtLayout>    <NuxtPage />  </NuxtLayout></template>
