To set up a Next.js project, you will need to have Node.js and npm (the Node.js package manager) installed on your machine.
Here are the steps to set up a new Next.js project:
Open a terminal window and navigate to the directory where you want to create your project.
Run the following command to create a new Next.js project:
npx create-next-app my-app
This will create a new directory called "my-app" with the basic file structure for a Next.js app.
Change into the new directory:
- Run the following command to install the dependencies for your project:
- Once the dependencies have been installed, you can start the development server by running the following command:
npm run dev
This will start the development server, and your app will be available at http://localhost:3000. As you make changes to your code, the development server will automatically reload the page to reflect your changes.
That's it! You now have a working Next.js project. You can start building your app by editing the files in the "pages" directory.
