Next.js Features

Hot Code Reloading

Next.js reloads the page when it detects any change saved to disk. Automatic Routing Any URL is mapped to the filesystem, to files put in the pages folder, and you don't need any configuration (you have customization options of course).

Server Rendering

You can render React components on the server-side, before sending the HTML to the client.

Ecosystem Compatibility

Next.js plays well with the rest of the JavaScript, Node, and React ecosystem.

Automatic Code Splitting

Pages are rendered with just the libraries and JavaScript that they need, no more. Instead of generating one single JavaScript file containing all the app code, the app is broken up automatically by Next.js in several different resources.


The Link component, used to link together different pages, supports a prefetch prop which automatically prefetches page resources (including code missing due to code splitting) in the background.

TypeScript Support

Next.js is written in TypeScript and as such comes with excellent TypeScript support.


Why Use Next.js eCommerce

Better User Experience
With Server-Side Rendering (SSR) the browser can start to display the HTML while the JavaScript files download parallelly and execute. With CSR, the user is left looking at a blank page longer, before the page becomes available and interactive. Hence, SSR can have huge upsides in terms of user experience.
High Performance
Next js delivers superior application performance with its code being split into separate bundles that are lazily-loaded behind the scenes. This allows achieving superior performance even with an unstable connections.
