# STATIC **This directory is not required, you can delete it if you don't want to use it.** This directory contains your static files. Each file inside this directory is mapped to `/`. Thus you'd want to delete this README.md before deploying to production. Example: `/static/robots.txt` is mapped as `/robots.txt`. More information about the usage of this directory in [the documentation](https://nuxtjs.org/guide/assets#static).
