2023-06-02 Project Proposal#
Openverse should migrate from Nuxt 2, which is about to reach end-of-life, to Nuxt 3.
Openverse should run on Nuxt 3.
All the current functionality should work as expected.
All the dependencies should be either updated to latest versions that support Nuxt 3 or replaced with the ones that support Nuxt 3.
Nuxt app should migrate from node version 16 to the active LTS version 18 (or the current version 20, which will become active LTS on 2023-10-24).
(Optional) Nuxt app should migrate to pnpm version 8
Openverse uses Nuxt 3, the end-users see no regressions, and the developer experience is improved due to faster build times.
Participants and stakeholders#
There should be no infrastructure changes.
Updating to Nuxt 3 could improve the accessibility for slow internet/low-spec devices by improving the app performance. There should be no changes in terms of accessibility for screen-reader and keyboard users.
We could share a post on Make WordPress about the Nuxt 3 migration.
