It will provide you all the scaffolding that you required to get started along with a good folder structure for an organization.

It has also come up with a default hot reloading support.

Compiling ES6/ES7 Easily 

Along with webpack, Nuxt.js comes bundled with Babel where it handles the compilation of the latest version of JavaScript such as ES7 or ES6. It has configured the Babel to deal with the .Vue file and ES6 code that comes inside the script tags.
