About this book

Next.js is a scalable and high-performance React.js framework for modern web development. It provides a large set of features out of the box, such as hybrid rendering, route prefetching, automatic image optimization, and internationalization. With this book, you’ll learn how to effectively use this exciting technology for a wide range of purposes, from creating an e-commerce website or a simple website to a blog without compromising on performance or user experience.

Starting from the basics of Next.js, you will understand how the framework can help you reach your development goals. You’ll also explore Next.js’s versatility by building real-world applications with the help of step-by-step explanations, understanding how to write unit tests and integration tests for an app, integrating different backends with the app, and more. Later, the book shows you how to choose the right rendering methodology for your website, how to secure it, and how to deploy it to different providers.

By the end of this Next.js book, you’ll have the skills you need to be able to design, build, and deploy modern architectures using Next.js with any headless CMS or data source.
