Migrating blog to nuxt/content - 2. generate description automatically

Continuation of the last post Migrate blog to nuxt/content - 1. migration of old posts.

There is no description header in the frontmatter of the posts, so the summary of the posts cannot be displayed in the post list on the top page.

Therefore I implemented a VuePress plugin like below to set strings before <!--more--> comment as description frontmatter.

const path = require('path')
const spawn = require('cross-spawn')
const markdownIt = require('markdown-it')

module.exports = (options = {}, context) => ({
  name: 'description',
  extendPageData ($page) {
    let content = $page._strippedContent
    if (!content) {
      // 404.html does not contain _strippedContent
    content = content.split('<!--more-->')[0]
    const md = markdownIt({
      breaks: true,
      linkify: true,
    var result = md.render(content)
    $page.description = result

At that time, I've already made another plugin as written in Remove .html suffix on VuePress and show created date. You have to be careful to set name property for the plugin when you create multiple plugins. I struggled with those plugins not working correctly because their names are not set.

I thought I have finally finished the migration, so tried to build and check. Then I found there are multiple description in the post. I saw an error like this:

app.dc0221ab.js:3 DOMException: Failed to execute 'appendChild' on 'Node': This node type does not support this method.

With refrence to https://github.com/vuejs/vuepress/issues/1692#issuecomment-632546907, I fixed it by surrounding <p v-html> with <ClientOnly>. No duplicate descriptions.
This is explained in the following guide.

The following code is the minimum reproducible code for this issue. It seems that this issue is reproduced when there is a tag with non-empty text as a sibling of the tag that contains v-html.

    <p v-html="html"></p>

export default {
  data () {
    return {
      html: '<p>test</p> ',

Continues to Migrating blog to nuxt/content - 3. list is too slow, and switch to nuxt/content.
