Clone the repository

Learn how to clone the MakerKit repository

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 Supabase SaaS template, we need to ensure you install the required software.

  • Node.js
  • Git
  • Docker

Getting Started with MakerKit

Cloning the repository

To get the codebase on your local machine using the original repository, clone the repository with the following command:

git clone my-saas

The command above clones the repository in the folder my-saas which you can rename it with the name of your project.

Initializing Git

Now, run the following commands for:

  1. Moving into the folder
  2. Point to your own Git repository
cd my-saas git remote rm origin git remote add origin <your-git-repository>

If you haven't created a Git repository yet, you can do it later on.

Setting the Upstream repository, and fetching updates

Now, we can add the original Makerkit repository as "upstream" so we can fetch updates from the main repository:

git remote add upstream

To fetch updates, you can run the following command:

git pull upstream main

Sometimes, you'll likely run into conflicts when running this command, so carefully choose the changes (sorry!).

If you want to use the Lemon Squeezy branch, you'll need to switch to the main-ls branch:

git checkout main-ls

Of course, when pulling updates, you'll need to pull from the main-ls branch:

git pull upstream main-ls

Installing the Node dependencies

Finally, we can install the NodeJS dependencies with npm:

npm i

While the application code is fully working, we now need to set up your Supabase project.

So let's jump on to the next step!
