A simple and highly customizable skeleton build with Turborepo and Next. The skeleton is bootstrapped with create-next-app and has the following features:

Table of contents

1. Setup

1.1 Node.js

First install the Node.js higher or equal to ^18.x Use the JavaScript Tool Manager Volta or the Node Version Manager.

1.2 How to install this template

After successfully installing Node.js you can create an app using this skeleton. We recommend creating a new app using npx or yarn create, which sets up everything automatically for you. To create a project, run:

npx create-nextjs-skeleton
# or
npm init nextjs-skeleton
# or
yarn create nextjs-skeleton

1.3 TypeScript

This skeleton uses TypeScript out of the box. If you don't feel comfortable using it or don't need it, just rename all the files to their JavaScript equivalent (.js and .jsx) and uninstall TypeScript and all the @types listed in the package.json.

2. Scripts

  • npm run dev - Start a local dev server, e.g: http://localhost:3000
  • npm run lint - Test your code using ESLint and Stylelint
  • npm run build - Build your application
  • npm run deploy - Build and test your application to deploy
  • npm start - Start a production server

3. Security

By default, Next doesn't provide all the security headers which results in a vulnerable application. I've added the default security headers listed in the Next docs. To test your application for security headers, visit

4. Styling

With Next there's a lot of options to style your projects. This skeleton uses Sass, CSS Modules , Modern Normalize and some unit functions inspired by Foundation sites, but use whatever works best for you. For example:

5. Search engine optimization

5.1 Meta

I've created a <Meta> component which adds all the properties required regarding SEO. You can set up default props or feed it dynamically with data.

5.2 Schema

I've also created a <Schema> component to add schema markup for WebSite and WebPage to your side. You can also set up default props or feed it dynamically with data.

6. Environment variables

Next has built-in support for environment variables and the option to expose variables to the browser by prefixing with NEXT_PUBLIC_.

7. Vercel CLI

Whenever possible, I recommend deploying to Vercel. It's free, easy to use and gets you running within minutes (hint: This template was deployed via Vercel). A few commands to get you started:

  • Install Vercel CLI with npm install -g vercel
  • Connect a project with vercel link and configure credentials accordingly
  • Use vercel env pull to get the environment variables
  • Use vercel dev to deploy a local test server at http://localhost:3000
  • Use vercel to deploy a preview build
  • Use vercel --prod to deploy a production build

8. Remote caching

With Turborepo, you can connect to the Vercel Remote Cache to share build artifacts. You first need to authenticate the Turborepo CLI with your Vercel account using npx turbo login. Then link your repo to enable the Remote Caching using npx turbo link. You will get a prompt to enable Remote Caching for the current repo. Enter Y for yes to enable Remote Caching. Next, select the team scope you'd like to connect to. Once completed, Turborepo will use Vercel Remote Caching to store the cache artifacts.
