Getting Started with Next.js


In your Next.js project, install Kitchn by running either of the following:

npm i kitchn --save

Provider Setup

After installing Kitchn, you need to set up the KitchnProvider at the root of your application.

Go to pages/_app.js or pages/_app.tsx (create it if it doesn't exist) and wrap the Component with the KitchnProvider:

// pages/_app.js
import { KitchnProvider } from "kitchn";
function App({ Component, pageProps }) {
  return (
      <Component {...pageProps} />
export default App;

Server Side Rendering

Now that everything is working you should be interested in Server Side Rendering.

Go to the next.config.js file and add the following:

// next.config.js
const { withKitchnConfig } = require("kitchn/next");
const config = {
  // your next config
module.exports = withKitchnConfig(config);

Then, go to the pages/_document.js or create it if it doesn't exist and add the following:

// pages/_document.js
import { KitchnDocument } from "kitchn/next";
export default class Document extends KitchnDocument {
  // your document
