If you have bought a license for MakerKit, you have access to all the repositories built by the MakerKit team. In this document, we will learn how to fetch and install the codebase.
To get started with the Next.js and Firebase SaaS template, we need to ensure you install the required software.
- Node.js (LTS recommended)
- Docker (optional but highly recommended)
You have two choices for cloning the repository: forking the original repository or cloning it. You can fork it from GitHub and then clone it on your local machine, or you can clone it directly.
To get the codebase on your local machine, clone the repository with the following command:
git clone --depth=1 firstname.lastname@example.org:makerkit/next-firebase-saas-kit.git
The command above clones the repository in the folder
you can rename it with the name of your project.
Now, run the following commands for:
- Moving into the folder
- Reinitialize your git repository
- Adding the original Makerkit repository as "upstream" so we can fetch updates from the main repository:
cd my-saas rm -rf .git git init git remote add upstream email@example.com:makerkit/next-firebase-saas-kit.git git add . git commit -a -m "Initial Commit"
In this way, to fetch updates (after committing your files), simply run:
git pull upstream main --allow-unrelated-histories
You'll likely run into conflicts when running this command, so carefully choose the changes (sorry!).
Finally, we can install the NodeJS dependencies with
While the application code is fully working, we now need to set up your Firebase project.
So let's jump on to the next step!
