Deploy SaaS Boilerplate

Deploying the SaaS boilerplate and template on Vercel is quick and easy. Follow this step-by-step guide to ensure a smooth deployment process.

Prepare Your Project

Before deploying, make sure your project is ready:

1. Install Dependencies: Ensure all your dependencies are installed by running:

npm install

2. Build the Project: Verify that your project builds correctly locally by running.

npm run build

3. Set Up Environment Variables: Ensure your .env file is properly configured with all necessary environment variables.

Create a Vercel Account

If you don't have a Vercel account yet, create one:

1. Sign Up for Vercel: Go to Vercel and create an account.
2. Connect to GitHub: Link your Vercel account to your GitHub account to allow easy deployments.

Deploy the Project

1. Import Your Project: After logging in to Vercel, click on the "New Project" button.

3. Project Name: Provide the "Project Name" for your project. Although Vercel will automatically detect your project settings, you can review and adjust them.

4. Build Command: Provide the build command. Additionally, verify that the build and output settings are correct (the default settings for a Next.js project usually work fine).

Since we use Prisma ORM on SaaSBold, edit the build command like this while deploying to Vercel.

prisma generate && npm run build

5. Set Environment Variables: Click on "Environment Variables" and add all the variables from the local .env file.

Pro Tip: To save time, you can efficiently paste all the variables at once.
