📦 create-docusaurus

A scaffolding utility to help you instantly set up a functional Docusaurus app.


npx create-docusaurus@latest [name] [template] [rootDir]

The name argument will be used as the site's path as well as the name field in the created app's package.json. It can be an absolute path, or a path relative to rootDir.

The template argument can be one of the following:

  • classic: Uses the classic template (recommended)
  • facebook: Uses the Facebook/Meta template, which contains some Meta-specific setup
  • A git repo URL (beginning with https:// or git@), which can be cloned to the destination
  • A local file path relative to CWD, which contains the files to be copied to destination

The rootDir will be used to resolve the absolute path to the site directory. The default is CWD.


This command should be preferably used in an interactive shell so all features are available.


-t, --typescript

Used when the template argument is a recognized name. Currently, only classic provides a TypeScript variant.

-g, --git-strategy

Used when the template argument is a git repo. It needs to be one of:

  • deep: preserves full git history
  • shallow: clones with --depth=1
  • copy: does a shallow clone, but does not create a git repo
  • custom: enter your custom git clone command. We will prompt you for it. You can write something like git clone --depth 10, and we will append the repository URL and destination directory.

-p, --package-manager

Value should be one of npm, yarn, pnpm, or bun. If it's not explicitly provided, Docusaurus will infer one based on:

  • The lockfile already present in the CWD (e.g. if you are setting up website in an existing project)
  • The command used to invoke create-docusaurus (e.g. npm init, npx, yarn create, bunx, etc.)
  • Interactive prompting, in case all heuristics are not present

-s, --skip-install

If provided, Docusaurus will not automatically install dependencies after creating the app. The --package-manager option is only useful when you are actually installing dependencies.
