Development Workflow Options for JSS Next.js Projects
Sitecore offers two paths for setting up your development environment based on your role, workflow, and operating system.
The resulting solution is optimized for a Sitecore-first developer workflow.
This path requires a machine with the Windows operating system.
To create a solution from the Getting Started template, follow the Walkthrough: Using the Sitecore Container Starter Template for JSS Next.js Projects.
Front-end development only
Get started with JSS front-end development on any operating system supported by Node, using the JSS CLI.
With this path, you only get a JSS application based on Next.js for a code-first developer workflow. You will need to perform additional steps to connect to a Sitecore instance.
Follow the Walkthrough: Creating a JSS Next.js starter application to set up the starter application for front-end development.
