Step 1: Deploy to Vercel

Use the Deploy Button below. It will let you deploy the starter using Vercel as well as connect it to your Sanity Studio using the Sanity Vercel Integration.

Deploy with Vercel

The above deploy will automatically configure the following:

  • Create new Repository in Github
  • Create a Sanity Project
  • Install Sanity Integration in Vercel
  • Add required CORS & API settings in the project
  • Deploy Frontend to Vercel

Step 2: Set up the project locally.

Once you have deployed the website, it will look like empty or not configured properly. This is expected. We need to do few more steps to make it as seen on the demo.

First, clone the github repository vercel created into your local machine. Use the following command structure. Make sure the terminal is on the right folder before executing this command.

git clone your-project-name

Once cloned, run the following command from the project's root directory. This will link your vercel project.

npx vercel link

Now, run the following command to pull the .env variables to your local system.

npx vercel env pull

Now you can see that a new .env.local file has been created. If this doesn't work, you can also rename the .env.local.example to .env.local and add the Sanity Project ID manually.

Now, you can open your code editor (if not already) we prefer VSCode. The run the command in the integrated terminal inside the code editor.

npm install
# or
yarn install
# or
pnpm install

We prefer pnpm to save your disk space.

Step 3: Import Demo Data (Optional)

To look like what you have seen in the demo, with all the content and images, follow the below steps:

  1. if you have not installed @sanity/cli install it globally first.
npm install -g @sanity/cli
# or
pnpm install -g @sanity/cli

Then login to sanity using sanity login command

sanity login

Now, you will be able to import demo content by running the sanity-import command. The files are located at /lib/sanity/data/production.tar.gz and will load automatically by running the below command.

npm run sanity-import
# or
pnpm sanity-import

Step 4: Finish it up!

Now, run your project using the below command.

npm run dev
# or
pnpm dev

Now your project should be up and the Next.js frontend will be running on http://localhost:3000.

Sanity Studio can be accessed using http://localhost:3000/studio or you can run it on a separate https://localhost:3333 server using the following command.

npm run sanity
# or
pnpm sanity

Step 5. Redploy

Once all of the above changes is made, make sure to redeploy to vercel once again to see all of your changes in production.

You can git push the changes and it should automatically trigger a new deployment. If not, you can also deploy to vercel using the following command.

npx vercel --prod

Manual Installation

We recommend you to use the one-click deploy option above. For some reason, if you cannot, use the following steps to install it manually.

Step 1. Clone the Repo

Clone the github repo or use the downloaded files in your local machine.

Step 2. Setup .env Variables.

Open the project folder and rename .env.local.example placed in the root folder into .env.local and add your sanity project ID. You can create a new project by visiting this link:

If you already have a project, copy the project ID from


Step 3. Allow CORS Origins

To make the studio work properly, you must add CORS origin in Sanity. This is usually setup automatically if you are using the Vercel Deploy. Visit in your browser to add CORS origin.

Click Add CORS origin button and enter the URL as http://localhost:3000 and check the Allow credentials checkbox.

Step 4 Continue from above steps

Now, you will be able continue from the above instructions to import the demo data and running the project locally.
