Netlify CMS & Next.js Series - Intro

Netlify CMS & Next.js Series - Intro


I'm using Netlify CMS & Next.js at work to create our website. I thought I'd document the process in case its useful for others.

This will be a series of posts were I'll setup a simple brochure site driven by the Netlify CMS. The resulting source code can be used as a template to get you up and running quickly on a new project.

The plan is to release one or two new posts a week.


  1. Intro (this post)
  2. Next.js Setup
  3. Adding markdown content
  4. Integrating Netlify CMS
  5. Deploy Netlify CMS
  6. Local deploy
  7. Custom previews
  8. Allow CMS users to edit Markdown
