Basejump is a starter-kit for launching SaaS apps on Supabase using Nextjs. It provides sensible defaults, a dashboard and account management functionality.
Most Supabase guides focus on how easy it is to get started. Very few talk about best practices for how to build sustainable projects.
If you want to spin up a supabase project and write manual SQL into their interfaces, you can. But the directions here are more for setting up a dev environment.
To launch a new project, we recommend that you clone the Basejump starter on Github.
Basejump uses Supabase for authentication, database and storage. To get started, you'll need to launch a local instance of Supabase. You can learn how to install the CLI tool here.

Now you're ready to install the dependencies and launch the app. Once it's live, you can access it at
npm run dev
