Vue designer tailwind styling problem

I just setup some Vue project with tailwind module, but i got problem every time when edit some element styling example color text, the changed not refresh automatically, I need to perform ALT+S to see the changes, is different when using sample project is automatically changed, I
attach my nuxt.config.ts file if there any wrong

export default defineNuxtConfig({
  devtools: { enabled: true },

  modules:['@pinegrow/nuxt-module', "@nuxtjs/tailwindcss"],
  pinegrow: {
    liveDesigner: {
      startupPage: 'app.vue',
      tailwindcss: {
        /* Please ensure that you update the filenames and paths to accurately match those used in your project. */
        configPath: 'tailwind.config.js',
        cssPath: '@/assets/css/tailwind.css',
        // themePath: false, // Set to false so that Design Panel is not used
        // restartOnConfigUpdate: true,
        restartOnThemeUpdate: true,
      //... existing config

and this is my terminal log when i perform changes

Hi Hasan,

There are some HMR issues that the Nuxt team are still fixing with Nuxt CLI. Please refer to Daniel Roe’s response here - ERROR [unhandledRejection] read ECONNRESET · Issue #23832 · nuxt/nuxt · GitHub.

Meanwhile can you pin nuxi in your package.json like below, run npm install, re-open the project in Vue Designer, and try again. Let me know how you go!

  "pnpm": {
    "overrides": {
      "nuxi": "3.8.4"
  "overrides": {
    "nuxi": "3.8.4"

If you still have this issue, please share your tailwind config file. Thanks!

There no any code inside my tailwind config file

If you haven’t yet, please open the config panel (clicking the nuxt/vue icon in the toolbar.

Scroll down to the section that shows instructions about installing the pinegrow tailwindcss plugin and other info. This is a required step for tailwind.

Refer to the tailwind config file in our sample apps if you want to understand how it looks like - happy-paws-with-nuxt-tailwindcss/tailwind.config.ts at main · Pinegrow/happy-paws-with-nuxt-tailwindcss · GitHub.

i did but i got another error

'nuxt' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Please try deleting you node_modules folder, and package-lock.json file, and run npm run install again, and start your dev-server (npm run dev) and try again.

If you could push your project to github or give access to your github project (if private), then I can have a quick look.

ok is sucessful, but is still same, i need press ALT+S when i make changes, pls wait i will configure myproject for github

sorry for waiting GitHub - BoneDeath/garansi

No worries. As per my original comment, pinning nuxi is required for now (I have added it below for you). So, replace your package.json with the below, npm install and try again.

  "name": "nuxt-app",
  "private": true,
  "type": "module",
  "scripts": {
    "build": "nuxt build",
    "dev": "nuxt dev",
    "generate": "nuxt generate",
    "preview": "nuxt preview",
    "postinstall": "nuxt prepare"
  "dependencies": {
    "@nuxtjs/tailwindcss": "^6.12.0",
    "nuxt": "^3.12.2",
    "vue": "^3.4.29",
    "vue-router": "^4.3.3"
  "devDependencies": {
    "@pinegrow/nuxt-module": "^3.0.56",
    "@pinegrow/tailwindcss-plugin": "^3.0.20"
  "pnpm": {
    "overrides": {
      "nuxi": "3.8.4"
  "overrides": {
    "nuxi": "3.8.4"

I will clone you repo when Im back home and test it out :+1:t4:

Also, your tailwind.config.ts file shouldn’t be empty.

Add the below to it, and follow the config panel to complete the rest.

export default {
  darkMode: 'class',
  plugins: [

  get content() {
    const _content = [
    return process.env.NODE_ENV === 'production'
      ? _content
      : [..._content, './_pginfo/**/*.{html,js}'] // used by Vue Desginer for live-designing during development

ok, I will wait for the result thankyou

Sure! Meanwhile try the above two files and share your experience from your end. The above two should ideally fix the HMR issue you were experiencing.

Yes the HMR issue was resolved

Cool, glad it works fine now. It was just the wiring :slightly_smiling_face:

How update of this topic do you resolve the problem??

Hi Hasan,

You confirmed that the HMR issue was resolved and it worked fine at your end. Did you have any other issues, for eg, the need to use Alt+S for HMR updates to be applied on the page?

Our config panel detects packages and provides instructions to make sure the appropriate wiring is established to ensure the app integrates with our design panel via the @pinegrow/tailwindcss-plugin and additionally provide intellisense as well. Please refer to the numbered list in the highlighted section.

I would like to understand where in the workflow you had issues following the config panel? Was it when you had to create a new tailwind.config.ts file? If you could provide more information, it would be helpful to understand the expected resolution. Thanks.

The HMR issue was resolved, but is still sometime to need press ALT+S after perform any changes

No im just joking its work perfect like a charm :slightly_smiling_face:
