How to access .env variables in nuxt3

"Nuxt 3 env"

Create .env file

Create .env file in the root directory of your project. Add your necessary variables to it.

Add runtime config

Head over to nuxt.config.ts file. Under defineNuxtConfig, add runtimeConfig object and then public and pass the variables as key and value.

export default defineNuxtConfig({
    runtimeConfig: {
        ...,  // declare private variables here
        public: {
            MODE: process.env.MODE, // this is public 
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


To access the variables, use useRuntimeConfig() composable from nuxt. There are two properties to access by default. public and app. Since we added our variables in public we can get it from there.

const config = useRuntimeConfig();
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
