Diference between static and assets folder in nuxt

I was wondering if I have static images where should i put them?
Inside the assets folder or inside the static folder? What’s the difference?

stuff in static is not handled by webpack, it’s just copied to the resulting dist directory.

You could read the documentation for more info. https://nuxtjs.org/guide/assets

So when should i use static and when assets?

Have you read the docs? It does answer that I think.
