Next.js Boilerplate Setup

For this tutorial, the GraphQL backend and the basic app UI is already ready. Our task will be to convert the "static" UI into a working realtime app in Next.js

Clone and run the boilerplate

  1. Clone the learn-graphql repo. Execute the following commands in your terminal:
# make sure git version is >= v2.26
git clone --filter=blob:none --sparse [email protected].com:hasura/learn-graphql.git
cd learn-graphql
git sparse-checkout init --cone
git sparse-checkout add tutorials/frontend/nextjs
  1. Navigate to the app-boilerplate directory.
cd tutorials/frontend/nextjs/app-boilerplate
  1. Install dependencies and run the "static" app
    • yarn install
    • yarn dev

Configure the environment variables

Copy the .env.example to .env and configure the values for Auth0.

The AUTH0_CLIENT_ID, AUTH0_DOMAIN, AUTH0_CLIENT_SECRET are available in your Auth0 application settings and SESSION_COOKIE_SECRET can be any random string of at least 32 characters and it is used to encrypt the cookie. Enter the Identifier found from your Auth0 API settings to AUTH0_AUDIENCE.

DOMAIN=http://localhost:3000
AUTH0_CLIENT_ID=
AUTH0_AUDIENCE=https://hasura.io/learn
AUTH0_DOMAIN=
AUTH0_CLIENT_SECRET=
REDIRECT_URI=/api/callback
POST_LOGOUT_REDIRECT_URI=http://localhost:3000/
SESSION_COOKIE_SECRET=

Do note that, the value of AUTH0_DOMAIN should be a full URL including the https:// prefix as required.

This is what you should see after the steps above:
