What is Next.js?

Next.js is a React framework for production environments. Next.js provides you with all the functions required for the production environment and the best development experience, including static (SSG) and server-side fusion rendering (SSR), support for TypeScript, intelligent packaging, routing prefetching and other functions without any configuration.

21YunBox provides a quick and easy Next.js deployment method. You can deploy on the 21YunBox using a static site or Node Server.

The difference between the two is that when deploying in the static site mode, the process is that the project will be built (packaged), and then the final generated static resources (HTML, CSS, JS, images, etc.) will be deployed to all parts of the country CDN node. When deploying with a Node Server, the process is to first build the project (package), deploy static resources to CDN nodes across the country, and then start the service into a state of waiting to be accessed, when there is a service request for access When the time, the server will process.
