Follow this quickstart guide to create and deploy your first PartyKit app in just a few minutes.
Note that to run PartyKit, you need to have Node v. 17 or higher installed.
Create a PartyKit app
To start your adventure, run the following command in your terminal to create a new PartyKit project:
npm create partykit@latest
That’s it! Navigate to your project’s directory, and explore your first PartyKit app 🥳
Run a dev server
To see PartyKit in action, run the following command in your terminal in your project’s directory:
npx partykit dev
Once the server is running, open localhost with the designated port (defaulting to 1999) in two windows to simulate two users logging using the app.
Deploy your app
Next, deploy your PartyKit server:
npx partykit deploy
