Quick Start

The best way to start with this template is using Create Next App.

# yarn
yarn create next-app -e
# npm
npx create-next-app -e
# pnpm
pnpm create next-app -e


To start the project locally, run:

pnpm dev

Open http://localhost:3000 with your browser to see the result.

List of websites that started off with Next.js TypeScript Starter:



  • Node.js >= 20
  • pnpm 9

Directory Structure

  • .github — GitHub configuration including the CI workflow.
  • .husky — Husky configuration and hooks.
  • public — Static assets such as robots.txt, images, and favicon.
  • src — Application source code, including pages, components, styles.


  • pnpm dev — Starts the application in development mode at http://localhost:3000.
  • pnpm build — Creates an optimized production build of your application.
  • pnpm start — Starts the application in production mode.
  • pnpm type-check — Validate code using TypeScript compiler.
  • pnpm lint — Runs ESLint for all files in the src directory.
  • pnpm format — Runs Prettier for all files in the src directory.

Path Mapping

TypeScript are pre-configured with custom path mappings. To import components or files, use the @ prefix.

import { Button } from '@/components/Button';
// To import images or other files from the public folder
import avatar from '@/public/avatar.png';

Switch to Yarn/npm

This starter uses pnpm by default, but this choice is yours. If you'd like to switch to Yarn/npm, delete the pnpm-lock.yaml file, install the dependencies with Yarn/npm, change the CI workflow, and Husky Git hooks to use Yarn/npm commands.

Note: If you use Yarn, make sure to follow these steps from the Husky documentation so that Git hooks do not fail with Yarn on Windows.
