What is Next.js?
Features of Next.js
Hybrid Static and Server Rendering
Next.js offers the best of both worlds by supporting both static site generation (SSG) and server-side rendering (SSR). This hybrid approach allows you to optimize your application for performance and SEO, while also enjoying the benefits of dynamic content.
Automatic Code Splitting
Next.js automatically splits your application code into smaller chunks, ensuring that users only download the code necessary for the current page. This results in faster load times and improved user experience.
With Next.js, you can dynamically import components and modules, ensuring they are only loaded when needed. This further optimizes your application's performance by reducing the initial bundle size.
Incremental Static Regeneration
Next.js allows you to regenerate static pages at runtime, which means you can update your static content without having to rebuild your entire application. This feature is particularly useful for applications with frequently changing data.
