I have a working Nuxt project based on Vue 2 and Tailwind and need to use some components from PrimeVue.

Took these steps (using yarn since the project has been using yarn not npm):

1) yarn add primevue@^2.6.0
2) yarn add primeicons
3) added this to modules of nuxt.config.js:

Code: Select all

       'primevue/nuxt', {
            theme: 'tailwind-light',
            ripple: true,
            components: ['PickList'],
            directives: ['Tooltip','Badge']
When I run I get the unexpected token error. Once I delete this entry in nuxt.config.js, everything works. Alternate configuration using 'primevue' property also fails and reveals that this part is ok:

Code: Select all

modules: ['primevue/nuxt'],

Code: Select all

 primevue: {....} 
is where the problem is.

What could be wrong? If it helps, please find key parts of my package.json as follows:

Code: Select all

    "scripts": {
        "dev": "nuxt",
        "build": "nuxt build",
        "start": "nuxt start",

        "lint:js": "eslint --ext .js,.vue --ignore-path .gitignore .",
        "lint": "yarn lint:js"
    "dependencies": {

Unable to replicate this. Could you please check this repo https://github.com/primefaces/primevue- ... quickstart?

If the issue persists, please provide us just a simple repo so that we can work on it again.

Thank you.
