Next.js and Vercel - Error! No Output Directory named "dist" found

3 replies
Last updated: Aug 8, 2022
I'm trying to setup Sanity + NextJS with Vercel. I've read the tutorial and I am able to deploy, however, in the Vercel build step, I run into an error stating
Error! No Output Directory named "dist" found after the Build completed. You can configure the Output Directory in your Project Settings.
and the build fails.

In this repo however there also is no /dist folder and /dist is also ignored via .gitignore. I am know wondering if I should in fact run
sanity build
to generate an output folder or if there is another way.
Thank you in advance!

In your Studio, can you double check that your
"build": "sanity build",
under the scripts section? Then, try running
npm run build
from to see if you get any errors.

There was my mistake! I had
"build": "sanity build public -y"
in my code, as stated in the Vercel documentation . Thanks for clearing that up!

Awesome! Looks like we may have to make a change to that starter.
