Getting started 🏃‍♀️

If you are running Node the commands below install the Sanity CLI tooling and boostraps a new project for you. Not running Node? Have a look at this.

npm install -g @sanity/cli
sanity init

Then check out the schema documentation and customize your data structure. When you're happy, just sanity deploy to host the editor with us and head over to to invite editors.

As they're merrily content managing you can start setting up a front-end to render your data based on one of the demos we have available.

Feel totally free to ping us on Slack or Gitter for a chat should you have questions along the way!
