What is Next.js?
Why do we use it?
Our expectations for digital platforms have become gradually higher as users. That is, we never fail to notice when a webpage fails to load in milliseconds. Back-end technology selections, by far, have the most impact on the end performance, product scalability, and success.
Every second counts when the majority of customers will spend less than 15 seconds on a webpage and 47% of consumers anticipate a load time of 2 seconds or less. As a JAMstack-first agency, we strive to give our clients consistently speedy and high-performing end-products. Without Next.js, none of this would have been possible.

LEVERAGE SERVERLESS API ROUTES
API routes give a method to construct your API with Next.js. API Routes may be used to create a whole API for new applications. If you already have an API, you don’t need to use an API Route to route requests to it. This server-less API has a number of distinct advantages, including:
- It only runs when called, which reduces the amount of work it has to do.
- You don’t have to worry about your API withstanding x100 traffic because resources are scaled according to your demands.
- Configuration options are numerous; for instance, you may deploy your API from a GitHub repository.
FASTER BUILDS WITH INCREMENTAL STATIC REGENERATION
After you have established your site, you may use Next.js to build or update static pages. Incremental Static Regeneration (ISR) allows you to employ static generation on a page-by-page basis rather than rebuilding the entire site.
- Any further queries to the website made before 10 seconds are likewise cached and immediate.
- The cached (stale) page will still be shown after the 10-second timeframe has expired.
- Next.Js causes the page to regenerate in the background.
- Next.js will invalidate the cache and display the updated product page after the page has been successfully produced. The old page remains unchanged if the background regeneration fails.
- Next.js will server-render the page on the initial request when a request is made to a route that has not been produced yet. The static file will be served from the cache in future requests. Furthermore, Fast Refresh ensures that the majority of modifications are displayed within a second.
