What people are saying

Who the hell am I,
and why did I build this?

Allow myself to introduce.... myself.

👋 I’m Morgan, a senior frontend dev with 5 years experience building with Next.js and React for companies of all shapes and sizes, you can learn more about me on linkedIn & via my website.

Initial motivation

I’m a huge fan of MDX and Next.js, especially the authoring experience MDX provides. MDX removes the need for a backend, or CMS, so there are less dependencies to manage.

Blending MDX with Next.js is made out as a utopia, but in reality isn’t because of the hidden pain of setup time and configuration. I know this first-hand from building multiple MDX blogs and marketing websites, for example my personal website.

You can waste days simply reading & following numerous half-baked examples to get somewhere close to where you want to be.

However, once setup it works brilliantly, which is where ZippyStarter shines.

ZippyStarter takes all that pain and setup cost away, leaving you with the authoring experience you wanted right from the start, and even more.

Through it you can benefit from my experience, and use a boilerplate I’d be proud to use on any project.

Goals
Boilerplate

First and foremost ZippyStarter is a boilerplate, saving you massive amounts of setup time designing and coding. I’ve included features you get with platforms such as WordPress to make your life easier.

Premium templates

Platforms like Framer and Webflow offer some really fun, interactive and well designed premium templates that Next.js is lacking. I want to bring the same level of premium templates to Next.js.

Authoring

Creating MDX files is made simple with the CLI that comes with ZippyStarter, run a command, fill in the prompts and you’ll have a categorised blog post in a few seconds.

Shipping fast

I want you to be able to use ZippyStarter for anything, from a simple, standalone, landing page, to a full-blown marketing website. I want the process to be easy and as pain-free as possible.

Getting found on the SERPS

I want your content to get found on search engines, so I’ve baked in a ton of SEO benefits that I always end up installing on every Next.js project.

The blog is built with Next.js and MDX. You can write in plain markdown, or use a blend of markdown and JSX, everything gets rendered as HTML. No backend or CMS is required to run this, read more about it on the blog. The layout includes a Table of Content's Component that automatically generates an on-page navigation for you from the post headings. There's also ample space to add CTAs

Only as part of client work, you can't re-sell or redistribute the templates, components, or any of the code, for instance as another boilerplate, template or a component library.
