Next.js is a React framework with a number of features to help you build React apps faster.
For example you can have a pages directory, and files in that directory automatically become routes.
Automatic prefetching of links on fast connections.
Ways of automating static generation.
Check out this talk if you’re curious about Next.js and want an introduction into what it can do for you.
