npx create-next-app -e


To start the project locally, run:

yarn dev

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



  • Node.js >= 12.22.0
  • Yarn 1 (Classic)

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.


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

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 npm

By default, this starter uses Yarn 1 (Classic), but this choice is yours. If you’d like to switch to npm, delete the yarn.lock file, install the dependencies with npm install, and change the CI workflows, Husky Git hooks, and lint-staged steps to use npm commands.
