As a developer, you can integrate Builder into your codebase and give other team members, such as content editors, marketers, and designers, the ability to build and manage pages without ever having to ping you.
Tip: This guide is detailed. If you'd prefer a more succinct guide to integrating, visit Developer Quickstart, which is a cheatsheet version of this document.
We highly recommend that you integrate Builder into an existing app; however, if you need to create an app, follow the steps for your framework in this section.
Tip: On Windows, be sure to use quoting when you install dependencies that use the
@ operator; for example,
npm install "@builder.io/react".
Start the development server:
We recommend that you place your Builder pages between your header and footer. A common use case is developers keeping headers and footers in their codebase while integrating page building. In this way, non-developer team members can iterate on pages, without having to rely on developers.
To use Builder pages between your header and footer, follow the guidance below for your framework:
For a community example with Builder and Next.js that includes ISR capabilities and SEO optimizations, see Kenzitron's Builder.IO & NextJs starter with ISR & SEO optimization on GitHub.
This guide demonstrated integrating page building into an app. For more demo apps in many frameworks, see Builder's GitHub repository for complete examples.
