Deploy a Vue.js Restaurant Menu App in 3 Steps

In this blog I will demonstrate deploying a Restaurant Menu App in 3 steps. This restaurant menu app was built using Nuxt, Vue.js and Vuex with content powered by Cosmic JS. It connects to the Cosmic JS API to add / edit / delete menu, menu items and their attached media. Install and manage your own Restaurant Menu App and manage its content from your Cosmic JS Bucket Dashboard. Simple. 😎 You can refer to the original tutorial below to build the app from scratch, or continue reading to simply deploy the Restaurant Menu App in 3 Steps.
