I believe some developers may find it easier to start with Next.js with a simple Motoko canister backend. So here it is. I have made the nextjs-ic-starter template open source.
Feel free to run it locally and even deploy it to IC Network.
A working demo is here.
I have written a quick start guide which I am sure you can follow and get it running in 10 mins.
More details can be found in the READM.md .
