Next.js starter template

I created a starter template for next.js, it also contains typescript, tailwind, shadcn/ui. I have already written about it here, but I have added some new functionalities such as: Next-auth, Prisma, React-hook-form, T3-env.

I want to create a CLI for this project in the near future. What technologies that are not included in the project could be added?

If you liked the project, I will appreciate if you leave a star. 🌟

What a comprehensive and feature-packed Next.js starter template you've created! 🚀 The inclusion of TypeScript, Tailwind CSS, Shadcn/ui, Next-auth, Prisma, React-hook-form, and T3-env makes it an all-in-one solution for getting a project up and running efficiently.

The planned addition of a CLI in the future sounds like a great enhancement. As for additional technologies to consider, you might explore incorporating GraphQL for efficient data fetching, or perhaps integrating a state management library like Redux for larger applications.

Overall, this is a fantastic resource for developers looking to kickstart a Next.js project with a solid foundation.
