Strapi Next.js Boilerplate is a boilerplate for building applications using Strapi and Next.js. This boilerplate consists of the following:
This boilerplate is built using the following technologies:
It supports GraphQL Query and Mutation out of the box.
Frontend: Next.js application
This application is the primary user-facing application. Once it’s up and running (see Development section), it’s available on http://localhost:3000/.
Backend: Dockerized Strapi application
Clone the application
git clone https://github.com/ghoshnirmalya/nextjs-strapi-boilerplate
Install necessary dependencies for the frontend application
cd frontend && yarn install
Create a .env file and copy the contents from .env.example (present in frontend directory)frontend/.env
NEXT_PUBLIC_API_URL=http://localhost:1337/graphql NEXT_PUBLIC_DATABASE_URL=postgres://strapi:strapi@localhost:5432/strapi NEXTAUTH_URL=http://localhost:3000 GOOGLE_CLIENT_ID="" GOOGLE_CLIENT_SECRET=""
We might need to run the following command:
Create and copy the Google client credentials
Create a new Google OAuth Client and copy the credentials (Client ID and Client Secret) in your .env file.

From the frontend directory, we can run the following command to start our Next.js frontend application:
The above command will start the frontend application on http://localhost:3000/.
Go inside the directory of the backend package on another terminal window
We need to start Docker and then run the above command which will change the current directory to the backend package’s directory and then start the backend package. If everything goes well, it’ll be up and running on http://localhost:1337/v1/graphql.
