That's good to know, Lili! I was worried that I was going down a wrong path! I agree with you, keeping the folders separate and managing the deployments separately makes a lot of sense. Right now, since it's just me and I don't have a team, I'm going to keep them all in one folder (though I may make the 'client' folder it's own git repo and the master repo include it as a git submodule: git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Tools-S...)

One thing that is still confusing to me is why this repo has a router.js
github.com/cretueusebiu/laravel-nu...
I thought Nuxt automatically compiles the routes based on the files in the directory. Not sure if you have an idea what this is for...

Re: router.js - you are absolutely right, Nuxt will create router.js based on /pages folder structure (you can see this in sample project for this post too). Not sure why there is one in your source code... Maybe a leftover from another approach? Or maybe sth went wrong in code generation in Nuxt template? Either way, you should not need it, and I'm not sure what happens if you have it (will it override Nuxt, or just be ignored?).

Thanks Lili. Upon digging deeper this is what I found / filed: github.com/cretueusebiu/laravel-nu...
He is essentially overriding the default Nuxt functionality of auto-creating routes because he likes doing it the manual way. So yeah, I've asked him to remove it and he seems open to the idea.
