Quick Start


To get started, you will need to install the gasket command.

npm i -g @gasket/cli

Now you can create gasket apps with the gasket create command and the preset you would like to use. In this example we will create a Next.js app.

gasket create your-app-name --presets @gasket/preset-nextjs

This will create a new directory with the name of your app.

cd ./your-app-name


From here, you can start your app in local development mode:

gasket local

Otherwise you can build and start your app directly:

gasket build
gasket start --env local

You can use gasket help to see what other commands are available in your app.

For new apps, it is recommended to add additional plugins during gasket create which may not be in the preset. For example, if you want the gasket docs command in the app, you could specify the additional plugins as:

gasket create your-app-name --presets @gasket/nextjs --plugins @gasket/docs,@gasket/docsify

Notice also, that you can use short-hand names for presets and plugins here.


If you have an existing app, some plugins can be added after create. First, install the necessary node modules:

npm i @gasket/plugin-docs @gasket/plugin-docsify

Then, in the app's gasket.config.js, add the plugins:

module.exports = {
plugins: {
presets: [
+ ],
+ add: [
+ '@gasket/docs',
+ '@gasket/docsify'

Now, when you run the docs command, a site will open in your default browser with docs for what is configured in your app.
