SSR Options


Force externalize dependencies for SSR.


  • Type: string | RegExp | (string | RegExp)[] | true
  • Related: SSR Externals

Prevent listed dependencies from being externalized for SSR. If true, no dependencies are externalized.

  • Type: 'node' | 'webworker'
  • Default: node

Build target for the SSR server.


  • Experimental
  • Type: 'esm' | 'cjs'
  • Default: esm

Build format for the SSR server. Since Vite v3 the SSR build generates ESM by default. 'cjs' can be selected to generate a CJS build, but it isn't recommended. The option is left marked as experimental to give users more time to update to ESM. CJS builds require complex externalization heuristics that aren't present in the ESM format.
