A statically generated blog example using Next.js, Markdown, and TypeScript

This is the existing blog-starter plus TypeScript.

This example showcases Next.js's Static Generation feature using Markdown files as the data source.

The blog posts are stored in /_posts as Markdown files with front matter support. Adding a new Markdown file in there will create a new blog post.

To create the blog posts we use remark and remark-html to convert the Markdown files into an HTML string, and then send it down as a prop to the page. The metadata of every post is handled by gray-matter and also sent in props to the page.

How to use

Execute create-next-app with npm, Yarn, or pnpm to bootstrap the example:

npx create-next-app --example blog-starter blog-starter-app
yarn create next-app --example blog-starter blog-starter-app
pnpm create next-app --example blog-starter blog-starter-app

Your blog should be up and running on http://localhost:3000! If it doesn't work, post on GitHub discussions.

Deploy it to the cloud with Vercel (Documentation).
