Gateway is nothing but a Next.js application with the added ability of retrieving components from the blockchain and rendering their code.
This allow you to create the frontend of your application combining classic

Click on this link to try it out.
Now just wait a few minutes for Vercel to build the website and enjoy your BOS gateway!
If you want to host the gateway on a specific domain you can configure it on Vercel.
If you want to change the home page component, modify
