Hi there.

I'd need help with Nuxt.js

I'm learning Nuxt and I've created the authentication with Nuxt-Auth and Laravel.

The authentication works and when I'm logged in, I can see the user name in the menu:

<li v-if="$auth.loggedIn" class="bold">{{ $ }}</li>

But once the session expires, If I click on a different link in the menu, the link with the user name remains in the menu, up to when I hit refresh.

I have this getters:

export const getters = {
  authenticated(state) {
    return state.auth.loggedIn

  user(state) {
    return state.auth.user

and I tried v-if="authenticated" and v-if="$auth.user" instead of v-if="$auth.loggedIn" but it doesn't change anything.

Help anyone ?

Possible Solution


I don't have a full environment (back-end code) to reproduce the issue, but from what I was able to gather from this thread, you could create custom auth reset functionality in plugins/axios.js. Something like this.

The next step

Create a file middleware/authenticated.js

Put this code in the middleware.


router: {
middleware: [

in nuxt.config.js. (router entry already exists, just modify it to include authenticated middleware)

This will make our middleware run before every route and check if the user is still logged in (valid session).

Thank you,

Hi Vladimir. Thanks for the help first and foremost. It almost work. I pushed it to the repo btw. But ya, it works if I click on the profil page since I have the auth middleware and I get an error. But if I click on the Home page or contact page link, since there is no error, the user name remains in the menu.

Hi Vladimir. Thanks for the help again. The problem now though, is I can't access the public pages, like the home page. Let me know...

No problem. I've updated my answer with the new code (check out the link) which won't block you from accessing pages. It should simply react to session expiration. Thanks.

Hi Vladimir. Thank agains for the help !! Now though we're back to the pointe where if the session has expired, if I click on the Home page or contact page link the user name remains in the menu. Only if I click on the Profile page, does the username disappear from the menu.

Hi. Alright, that's because the home/contact page doesn't make a request to the server. The next version includes an option for this, but currently as suggested here by another user, it is a bit inconvenient. A workaround that I can think of would be replicating the functionality of the login page. Check out the new code. Thanks.
