To create a storefront powered by Metaplex, you need to create a store on the Metaplex platform. This guide will outline steps you need to take to create your store.
- Node.js version >= 14.17.0 or above (which can be checked by running
node -v). You can use nvm for managing multiple Node versions on a single machine installed.
Apple M1 Chip
If you have Mac OS with the Apple M1 Chip, you'll need to install some additional dependencies.
After installing brew, run the following:
brew install pkg-config cairo pango libpng jpeg giflib librsvg
See additional information: https://github.com/Automattic/node-canvas/wiki/Installation%3A-Mac-OS-X
Clone the repo and install its dependencies.
git clone https://github.com/metaplex-foundation/metaplex.git
cd metaplex/js && yarn install && yarn bootstrap
Now run your store web server locally.
After that you can open http://localhost:3000/ in your browser to see a storefront (it may take a minute to load the first time).
