Next.js is a backend framework for your React applications.
Check out Theo’s Next.js Conf talk↗ to get a better understanding of what Next.js is and how it works.
We love React. It has made UI development accessible in ways we never imagined before. It also can lead developers down some rough paths. Next.js offers a lightly opinionated, heavily optimized approach to creating applications using React. From routing to API definitions to image rendering, we trust Next.js to lead developers towards good decisions.
Pairing Next.js with Vercel↗ makes developing and deploying web apps easier than ever before. Their extremely generous free-tier and super intuitive interface provides a point and click solution to deploy your site (We ❤️ Vercel)
A key feature of Next.js is its data fetching capabilities. We highly recommend reading through the official documentation↗ to understand how to use each method and how they differ.
getServerSideProps is generally discouraged unless there is a good reason for it, due to the fact that it is a blocking call and will slow down your site. Incremental Static Regeneration↗ is a great alternative to
getServerSideProps when the data is dynamic and can be fetched incrementally.
