Should get this message:

Success! Your Sanity configuration files has been added to this project

Now we need to run our project pmpm run dev and go to http://localhost:3000/studio

Add http://localhost:3000 to the CORS Origins in the sanity dashboard. We also need to add our url when we deploy this project to production.

Now we need to define a schema for our content.

Let's create a lesson squema:

const lesson = {
  name: 'lesson',
  title: 'Lesson',
  type: 'document',
  fields: [
      name: 'title',
      title: 'Title',
      type: 'string',
      name: 'slug',
      title: 'Slug',
      type: 'slug',
      options: { source: 'title', maxLength: 96 },
      name: 'url',
      title: 'URL',
      type: 'url',
      name: 'image',
      title: 'Image',
      type: 'image',
      options: { hotspot: true },
      fields: [
          name: 'alt',
          title: 'Alt',
          type: 'string',
      name: 'content',
      title: 'Content',
      type: 'array',
      of: [{ type: 'block' }],

export default lesson

Run npm run dev and go to http://localhost:3000/studio/desk/lesson to create a new lesson.

Now we need to create a query to get the data from sanity.

Create a file lib/sanity.ts:

import { createClient } from '@sanity/client'
