Let's build Hulu clone with Next.js & Tailwind

Muhammad Ahmad
Full Stack Developer. Passionate about Tech.
・6 min read

I'll be creating a Hulu webpage clone with Next.js and Tailwind.

Live demo: hulu-clone-live
Github repo: hulu-clone-repo

Breaking down the layout of webpage to 6 main sections.

  • Header
  • Sub header
  • Categories
  • Live
  • Live sports
  • Footer

1. Setup the Project

Create a Next.js app

yarn create next-app --typescript
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Install tailwind and configure it

yarn add tailwindcss@latest postcss@latest autoprefixer@latest
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

2. Sections
