React.js with Next.js

Server-side web and mobile apps

Blazing fast & future proof

Forget languages like PHP and Python for server-side rendering. Next.js is a much faster equivalent based on the React.js framework which can handle web and mobile apps with huge amount of pages and content.

Next.js is our main go to for big apps that have thousands of pages with rich content or plans to scale too. Next.js has multiple built-in configurations – automatic code splitting, file-system routing, server-side rendering with Node.js, static files exporting, and styling solutions. Arguably its main benefit is its Node.js based server-side rendering which allows your app to render on the fly appose to waiting for your site to rebuild every time you publish content like most static site generators. Instead it reloads the page when it detects any content changes.

Other benefits include blazing fast performance, higher security thanks to a decoupled headless CMS approach, SEO-friendly websites and modular design with reusable React.js based components.

Blazing fast performance

Why wait for pages to build on the fly when you can generate them at deploy time? When it comes to minimizing the time to first byte, nothing beats pre-built files served over a CDN.

Higher security

With server-side processes abstracted into microservice APIs, surface areas for attacks are reduced dastically. You’ll no longer need to worry about security patches!

Scalability

Is your website gaining popularity? With other server-side rendering platforms, scalability is often a concern. Next.js is not only faster, but it’s more reliable and doesn’t require massive maintenance time each month. That means more money stays in your wallet.

No platform limitations

With a headless CMS you don't have to deal with a platforms flaws. Instead we can take popular CMSs like Wordpress and use them strickly for their awesome content management backend

Modern framework

Since Next.js is built on the React.js framework it embraces modular design. We can split your UI into simple, independent, reusable components. On top of that our stack uses TypeScript which means type safety in our code and bug reduction.

Server-side rendering

The major difference between Next.js with Gatsby.js is its benefits of server rendering React applications via Node.js, which has never been easier, no matter where your data is coming from.

When to choose server rendering

If you have lots of content or if you expect your content to grow a massively over time, then static generated web pages might not be the best solution for you. The reason is, when creating a very large app with thousands of pages it can become really slow to rebuild. And if you have to wait 20 minutes when you hit publish before it goes live it’s not a very good end solution. This is where Next.js becomes the better option and really shins with its Node.js based server-side rendering.
