Create NEAR App

=============== Gitpod Ready-to-Code

Quickly build apps backed by the NEAR blockchain


Make sure you have a current version of Node.js installed – we are targeting versions 16+.

Read about other prerequisites in our docs.

Getting Started

To create a new NEAR project run this and follow interactive prompts:

npx create-near-app

If you've previously installed create-near-app globally via npm install -g create-near-app, please uninstall the package using npm uninstall -g create-near-app to ensure that npx always uses the latest version.

Follow the instructions in the in the project you just created! 🚀

You can create contracts written in:

You can create a frontend template in:

  • React
  • Vanilla JavaScript

For testing we use a sandboxed environment of NEAR (called Workspaces). You can write the tests in JavaScript or Rust.

Using CLI arguments to run create-near-app

This CLI supports arguments to skip interactive prompts:

npx create-near-app
  --contract js|rust|assemblyscript
  --frontend vanilla|react|none
  --tests js|rust

Use --install to automatically install dependencies from all package.json files.

When using arguments, all arguments are required, except for --install.

Getting Help

Check out our documentation or chat with us on Discord. We'd love to hear from you!

Contributing to create-near-app

To make changes to create-near-app itself:

  • clone the repository (Windows users, use git clone -c core.symlinks=true)
  • in your terminal, enter one of the folders inside templates, such as templates/vanilla
  • now you can run npm install to install dependencies and npm run dev to run the local development server, just like you can in a new app created with create-near-app

About commit messages

create-near-app uses semantic versioning and auto-generates nice release notes & a changelog all based off of the commits. We do this by enforcing Conventional Commits. In general the pattern mostly looks like this:

type(scope?): subject  #scope is optional; multiple scopes are supported (current delimiter options: "/", "\" and ",")

Real world examples can look like this:

chore: run tests with GitHub Actions

fix(server): send cors headers

feat(blog): add comment section

If your change should show up in release notes as a feature, use feat:. If it should show up as a fix, use fix:. Otherwise, you probably want refactor: or chore:. More info

Deploy create-near-app

If you want to deploy a new version, you will need two prerequisites:

  1. Get publish-access to the NPM package
  2. Get write-access to the GitHub repository
  3. Obtain a personal access token (it only needs the "repo" scope).
  4. Make sure the token is available as an environment variable called GITHUB_TOKEN

Then run one script:

npm run release

Or just release-it
