The Best Directory Structure to Use for Next.js and Sanity Projects

9 replies
Last updated: Jun 14, 2021
For Next & Sanity projects, do folks usually go with the following structure (as Sanity's examples seem to use):
/studio/ folder within a Next.js project

frontend -> nextjs files
studio -> sanity magic ?

we do the second, works fine (each is a yarn workspace though)

Not overly familiar with yarn workspaces / seeing mentions of lerna - but I do think option 2 is the cleaner one. Tryna figure out whether its better to host Studio on vercel alongside frontend, or follow stick with sanitys default deploy location

I tried copying what was set up in the template repo but couldn’t get it working.

I’ll give it another try when my current projects calm down a bit. I kept getting errors when trying to access the studio. The classic

I think that’s pretty much the setup I had as well. Though I use npm (other than in the studio since sanity pretty much forces yarn on you). That shouldn’t be it though, right?
