Discussion on: If no SSR/SSG planned, is it wrong to go with Next.js ?

Nextjs has some clear advantages like SSR and SSG (even Incremental Static Regeneration) but you can use it with other ambitions. Things like not having to deal with react-router-dom (or any other routing library) or the Image Optimization plugin can be useful too, it's also easy to set up better SEO.

My rule of thumb is that if you know React well enough and know what problems Nextjs solves over a CRA project, go on, there's a video from Next Conf called When not to use Next.js that might fit your questions.
