Basic API routes example

How to use

Using create-next-app

Execute create-next-app with Yarn or npx to bootstrap the example:

npx create-next-app --example api-routes api-routes-app
# or
yarn create next-app --example api-routes api-routes-app

Download manually

Download the example:

curl | tar -xz --strip=2 next.js-canary/examples/api-routes
cd api-routes

Install it and run:

npm install
npm run dev
# or
yarn dev

Deploy it to the cloud with now (download)


The idea behind the example

Next.js ships with API routes which provides an easy solution to build your own API. This example shows how to create multiple API endpoints with serverless functions, which can execute independently.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
