Learn how to use the Vercel Toolbar in your local environment.
Table of Contents

To enable the toolbar in your local environment, add it to your project using the @vercel/toolbar package, or with an injection script.

Install the package using the following command:

pnpm i @vercel/toolbar

Then link your local project to your Vercel project with the vercel link command using Vercel CLI.

vercel link [path-to-directory]

To use the Vercel Toolbar locally in a Next.js project, define withVercelToolbar in your next.config.js file and export it, as shown below:

Next.js (/app)
Next.js (/pages)
Other frameworks
/** @type {import('next').NextConfig} */
const nextConfig = {
  // Config options here
const withVercelToolbar = require('@vercel/toolbar/plugins/next')();
// Instead of module.exports = nextConfig, do this:
module.exports = withVercelToolbar(nextConfig);

Then, follow the instructions in the section on using the toolbar in production deployments. Rebuild your local environment, and you should see the toolbar.
