In our incessant daily work aimed at the development of our project, we virtually attended the Next.js 2022 conference (sponsored by Vercel) which was held in person in the city of San Francisco, California, United States, whose capacity seemed to exceed expectations, as well as the invaluable content and news that were offered there.
One of those great news that was announced during the conference was the release of Next.js13, which improves some of the tasks that developers usually consider critical: webApps response speed, 24/7 availability, compatibility with DeFi tools, and new features that will change the usual way developers approach and maintain their projects.
What is Next.js and why is it so important?
Next.js is a framework that provides a solution to each of the problems or needs that a developer presents when developing his project on the web.
Here is a list of everything an experienced developer can achieve using Next.js (taken directly from its documentation)
- An intuitive page-based routing system (with support for dynamic routing)
- Pre-rendering, both static rendering (SSG) and server-side rendering (SSR) are supported on a per-page basis;
- Automatic code splitting for faster page loads;
- Client-side routing with optimized prefetch;
- Built-in CSS and Sass support, and support for any CSS-in-JS library;
- Development environment with Fast Refresh support;
- API routes to create API endpoints with serverless functions.
We use Next.js for our stellar tools 🤓
Like big companies like Apple, Google, Starbucks, Uber, Netflix, GitHub, Coinbase, Twitch and hundreds of others, we are driven by the desire to provide our customers with quality products that meet their needs and also be easily scalable with the purpose of adapt to the new challenges that arise daily in the industry.
In an environment as competitive as that of cryptocurrencies and decentralized finance, it is mandatory to have the greats as inspiration; those who have achieved success through the trust and solidity that their ideas provide, and the fact of being able to bring them to reality through such powerful tools as Vercel’s Next.js.
We’re also planning to migrate all our web products to Next.js including our main website (yes, this one 😅) because we want you to have the best experience reading our blog and interacting with our products, so stay updated! positive changes are coming for DexKit and you will feel them all 😁
