A Sitecore Next js Guide for Beginners


As the industry shifts towards a composable architecture, more Sitecore developers are making the switch from MVC to Next.js or working with Sitecore as a front-end developer for the first time. Transitioning from a monolithic to a composable architecture can be overwhelming, so I thought to create a guide to Sitecore Next.js for beginners.

The tutorial will guide you on setting up a Sitecore XM environment locally using dockers, and get you started in creating your first component. This guide is purposefully simplified to not overwhelm the audience; it is intended for you to conduct further research on your own.

While it's still a work in progress, I'm excited to share my progress and provide developers with a starting point.

What you will learn:

  1. Brief overview of headless architecture
  2. How to setup a local docker instance running Sitecore XM
  3. Beginner Sitecore concepts
  4. Creating components using Next.js
