In today’s NextJS tutorial we will cover the following:
# Create a new Next.js app with npx npx create-next-app # Create a new Next.js app with npm npm create-next-app # With yarn yarn create next-app
Here, we use the yarn command for creating our NextJS app. Follow the below command.
Once done with the command, below would be the success response.
Our whole project is stored in the next-project-demo. Refer to the below image for the folder structure.

Moving to the main section of the NextJs tutorial. In Next.js we can create a multi-page application using its file-based routing. And the best part is, there’s no need to install extra packages or third-party libraries like react-router-dom, or even configure a router at all.
All Next.js applications include the default /pages directory: home of application’s React Components. A router will serve a page based on the component.
Open the index page and remove all codes from that file and use the below code to configure HomePage.
Now if we want to add another page then we will create a file and pages folder and perform the same operation like we had done for HomePage.
Suppose we want to create an About page, simply add the about.js file in the page directory. Use the below code for the same.
Run the App
Now in the browser if we mentioned /about inside route then the application will load About page.
That’s it for the NextJs tutorial for beginners. In the next guide, we will discuss more file-based Routing and linking with multiple pages.
