Next.js is a flexible React framework that helps you to build fast and modern applications. It can be used to solve some application requirements such as:

  • Routing
  • Data Fetching
  • Integrations

Next.js allows you to use static generation on a per-page basis, through Incremental Static Regeneration (ISR), without having to rebuild the entire application. That means you can enjoy the benefits of static and still be able to scale.

A page, in Next.js, is a React Component inside a file. This file can be in any of the following extensions:

  • .js
  • .jsx
  • .ts
  • .tsx

Every page has an associated route based on its file name.

Example:

Let’s say you create pages/azion.js exporting a React component.

export default function Azion() {
return <div>The easiest way to build, deploy, observe and secure modern applications.</div>
}

The page will be accessible at /azion:

pages/
azion.js

Next.js generates HTML for each page in advance, relieving client-side Javascript of this burden. As a consequence, this pre-rendering can help your application have better performance and Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

  • Static Generation: during build time, the HTML is generated and reused on each request.
  • Server-side Rendering: the HTML is generated on each request.
