Project Configuration

Learn how to set up up your project's configuration

Makerkit can be configured from a single place: the src/configuration.ts object. This file exports a constant we use throughout the project to read our application's settings.

Use this file to configure your project

We recommend adding additional configuration to this file rather than reading it directly from the environment variables. For example, assuming you rename one of your environment variables, you will only need to update it in one place. Additionally, it helps maintain your codebase more explicit and understandable.

We retrieve some of this file's configuration using environment variables: these help us swap and tweak our settings based on which environment we're using, such as the Firebase configuration.

For example, in your Vercel console, you could run multiple projects:

  • one for production
  • and one for staging

Here is what the configuration file looks like:

const configuration = {
  site: {
    name: 'Awesomely - Your SaaS Title',
    description: 'Your SaaS Description',
    themeColor: '#ffffff',
    themeColorDark: '#0a0a0a',

        price: '$249/year',
        stripePriceId: 'basic-plan',
        features: [
          'Feature 1',
          'Feature 2',

Feel free to extend this configuration to your needs. For example, you could new properties to the site object to store your social media handles, or add new properties to the paths object to store the paths to your pages.
