Getting Started
This guide covers the prerequisites you need to start building extensions.

System requirements

Before you can create your first extension, make sure you have the following prerequisites.
  • You have Raycast 1.26.0 or higher installed.
  • You have Node.js 16.10 or higher installed. We recommend nvm to install Node.
  • You have npm 7.0 or higher installed. If you used nvm to install Node, this is the case.
  • You are familiar with React and TypeScript. Don't worry, you don't need to be an expert. If you need some help with the basics, check out TypeScript's Handbook and React's Getting Started guide.
