Discussion on: Why Quasar? Why Nuxt? Why Vue?

I've used all three. They are all based around Vue, which i started with to learn the framework. I quickly moved to try quasar to get benefits of server side rendering. Quasar is the full package, where CSS etc is determined for you. Components are premade and you can hack them together to create a very polished result with little effort. I eventually settled with Nuxt, as I like the folder structure and router. I also like how there is freedom to use a CSS framework of my choosing while still getting the benefits of SSR and static site generation. It ultimately depends on why you are using a js framework. What are you are looking to achieve and how much freedom do you want while doing it?! Just give them all a try.

Ah, you have no option but to use Quasar's CSS classes? So you write your own CSS/SCSS/whatever on top of it but can't pull in vuetify / bootstrap / tailwind?

You could import another CSS framework, however then you would be losing a big chunk of the functionality of Quasar. They are single file components as per usual, so you can easily add your own CSS classes.
Unless you are using the premade components or creating a mobile, or electron app, then it probably isn't the right solution in my opinion.
