NuxtLabs UI

For the past two weeks, we've been working on open-sourcing our components library at NuxtLabs that powers Volta and Nuxt Studio.

It took a lot of refactor to achieve this, so there is no real update on Volta itself.

We're happy to announce NuxtLabs UI, a Nuxt module that provides everything related to UI when building a Nuxt app (components, icons, colors, dark mode and keyboard shortcuts) is now open-source!

Feel free to use it in your Nuxt projects and contribute to it!
