Getting started with JSS for Next.js development

Current version: 19.x

Sitecore offers two paths for setting up your development environment for developing Next.js JSS apps based on your role, workflow, and operating system.

Full-stack, Sitecore-first development

To create a solution for full-stack development with Sitecore and JSS for Next.js, Sitecore provides a container-based template optimized for the Sitecore-first development workflow.


This path requires a machine with the Windows operating system.

Front-end development

If you do not have a Windows machine, work strictly in a front-end / JavaScript development role, you can get started with JSS front-end development on any operating system supported by Node.js, using the JSS CLI.


With this path, you only get a JSS application based on Next.js for the code-first development workflow. You must perform additional steps to connect the JSS Next.js app to a Sitecore instance.
