Clone the Git repository

Learn how to clone the Saas UI Git repository.

In case you have redeemed your license key and accepted the Github invite, you should now have access to the Saas UI Pro Git repository.

Generate from template#

You can create a new repository using the Github template feature.

Generate from template

Make sure you deselect Include all branches and create a new Private repository. The new repository will be created with the latest version of Saas UI Pro, and without any commit history.

Clone the repository#

To clone the repository on your local machine, use the following command:

git clone --depth=1 my-project

This will clone the repository into the my-project folder, without the commit history.

Setup Git#

Now that you have cloned the repository, you can setup your Git configuration.

The saas-ui-pro repository is configured as the origin by default, you can can change this to upstream and keep origin for your own repository.

git remote rename origin upstream
git remote add origin

You can pull the latest changes from the upstream repository using the following command:

git pull upstream main --allow-unrelated-histories

As your codebase diverges from saas-ui-pro you will run into merge conflicts eventually, so at some point it might be easier to manually copy over any changes that you want to implement.

Install dependencies#

This project uses yarn 3 to manage dependencies, you can install all dependencies using the following command:


PNPM support#

If you prefer to use pnpm instead of yarn, you need to set up the pnpm workspace.

Create .pnpm-workspace.yaml in the root of your project with the following content:

- 'apps/*'
- 'packages/*'
- 'saas-ui/*'

Then run the following command to install all dependencies:

pnpm i

Make sure you also update the scripts in package.json to use pnpm instead of yarn.

Saas UI base components#

The repository includes the source code of the Saas UI Pro base components, which are located in the saas-ui folder. These packages will be installed as part of the workspace. In case you want to install these packages from the private NPM registry, you can remove the saas-ui folder from the workspaces configuration in package.json, or pnpm-workspace.yaml in case you use pnpm.

After removing the saas-ui folder from the workspaces configuration, you can delete this folder and configure the private NPM registry. Make sure you also delete the SaasUIProPlugin from your Next.js Webpack configuration in apps/web/next.config.mjs.
