What Is Next.js?

Next.js is a React framework built by Zeit, INC. Zeit has some interesting CDN and deployment products, but its React framework has been on my radar. I have built some sites with both Create React App and Gatsby, so I was curious to see what Next.js could bring to the table.

One of the features that stood out to me was the server-side rendering. The biggest issue with some of these new frameworks has always been SEO, which is why I haven’t adopted some of these new technologies. But with next.js, all of your components inside the “pages” folder get server-rendered automatically.
