Get Started


An example of the blog theme can be found here.

Similar to the docs theme, you can install the blog theme with the following commands:


  1. Install Next.js, Nextra and React: yarn add next nextra react react-dom

  2. Install the blog theme: yarn add nextra-theme-blog

  3. Create the following Next.js config and theme config under the root directory:

// next.config.js
const withNextra = require('nextra')({
theme: 'nextra-theme-blog',
themeConfig: './theme.config.js',
// optional: add `unstable_staticImage: true` to enable Nextra's auto image import
module.exports = withNextra()
// theme.config.js
export default {
footer: <p>MIT 2021 © Nextra.</p>,
head: (
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
<meta name="description" content="Nextra: the next blog builder" />
<meta name="og:title" content="Nextra: the next blog builder" />
readMore: 'Read More →',
titleSuffix: null,
postFooter: null
  1. Create pages/_app.js and include the theme stylesheet:
import 'nextra-theme-blog/style.css'
export default function Nextra({ Component, pageProps }) {
return <Component {...pageProps} />
  1. You are good to go!


You can also use <style jsx> to style elements inside theme.config.js.
