We had tough times working with Next to make it our beloved framework. We opened issues (, make pull requests and discuss a lot in the slack channel of NextJs. Unfortunately some of our must have features was not supported at that time. So we started creating a boilerplate that had all the features we wanted on top of Next.

Why Next

Next is great. It's way to do SSR and server side data fetching is awesome. Doing SSR that easy is the core of Next and all other features are less important. But this alone is enough to choose it as your React framework of choice!


Just clone the ripo

$ git clone && cd next-boilerplate
Install dependencies
$ yarn install
Remove the git history to init your own
$ rm -rf .git
Start dev server
$ yarn dev
Now open the browser window and go to http://localhost:3000. Everything works fine!
