The 0kb Next.js blog
Next.js is a huge abstraction of ReactDOMServer and other helpful utilities for building server side rendered apps powered by React. It's really easy to get started with, and features things like file system routing, statically generated content and much much more. I'm not trying to advertise it but I really really love it. There are a couple things to take in from the first sentence here, server side rendering and React.
With something called the Next.js
<script> tags in sight!
As the saying goes, there's no such thing as free lunch. As with anything, doing this comes with some tradeoffs. For example, Next has a lot of built in React components that can speed up not only your app, but also development speed. Using the zero kb mode, we unfortunately cannot make full use of the
next/link component; a component that prefetches pages so that clicks on links don't cause a full page reload. Additionally, we cannot use
useEffects (thank god tbh).
