Favicon serves as branding for a website and it's certainly important to have it display on every site. In this post, you'll learn how to add/update the existing Nuxt Js that's been shipped by default.

Favicon type
A favicon can be in any image format but it's recommended that the file would be in a ".ico" or ".png". There are several ways to generate it and the recommended file size would be 16 x 16 or 32 x 32. The bigger the dimension the sharper it will get.

Nuxt Config
To add/change the favicon on a Nuxt Js application, we have to define it on the configuration file which is on config.nuxt.js. The full configuration can be found below and the important part is that it should be under the head property.
const config = {}

config.head = {
  link: [
    { rel: 'icon', type: 'image/png', href: '/favicon.png' }
  ],
}
The code above is to define a new link tag that will reference the favicon file which is located in the "static" directory.

If the favicon is in ".ico" format then the type should be as following. 
const config = {}

config.head = {
  link: [
    { rel: 'icon', type: 'image/x-icon', href: '/favicon.ico' }
  ],
}

View in Browser
Once it's defined run "yarn dev" and view the browser tab
