Starting your Next.js project
The pre-installed Hacker Tools in Build come with a Node runtime, so it is a great option to get started:
blink> build mosh
Now let’s create an example Next.js project:
root ➜ ~ $ yarn create-next-app@latest
Go to your project's folder, by default
my-app, and run a development server:
root ➜ ~ $ cd my-app root ➜ ~ $ yarn dev
Blink Build can transparently expose the ports on the remote container inside your local device. In this case, we want to access the node server running on port 3000, in our localhost on port 3001:
blink> build ports add htools 3000 3001
Visit http://localhost:3001 and view your project alive!
👍 Blink Build exposes ports securely over a Wireguard interface. To open the ports on your machine to the Internet, check out
