Setup Next.js

Last updated on 26 Aug, 2022

In order to setup Next.js in a computer, we need MacOS, Windows or Linux installed in the machine. Also, we need Node.js to be installed.

If Node.js is installed, we can setup Next.js using below command.

npx create-next-app@latest

npx is a NPM package executor. We can both download and run a package using npx command. npx is automatically available if your NPM version in your machine is v5.2.0 or higher.

Another package manager is yarn. Using the yarn global command also, we can setup Next.js using:

yarn create next-app

If you are using pnpm, you can setup Next.js using:

pnpm create next-app

The setup process is interactive. Follow the instructions and you will get a project that has Next.js setup in it.
