Next.js is a flexible React framework.
Next.js leverages the full power of React to give you the building blocks you’ll need to build a web browser app even faster with deployment directly from GitHub.
Next.js applications are known to enhance:
User interfaces: Next.js allows for richer UI experiences that load and display quickly
Routing: easier navigation between various parts of your application
Data Fetching: faster retrieval of stored data and rapid serving of this data to end users
Rendering: React supports server side rendering, optimal for single-page applications with pages on a unique url in the browser
Integrations: more seamless integration of third-party tools (e.g. payment services, content management systems, folder management, etc.)
Infrastructure: easier deployment of the application (this is where DigitalOcean can help!)
Performance: faster and better performance, so your customers can seamlessly get what they need from your application
Scalability: easily scale your application as your traffic and business grows
Developer Education: improved documentation and resources that enable easier troubleshooting and implementation of advanced features
Sometimes developers can easily confuse Next.js with NodeJS (sometimes referred to as Node for shorthand). If you’re looking to deploy a NodeJS application, check out our 1-click installation NodeJS application.
