Nice! Think all the time Next.js is a React library just like Gatsby but focused on Server side rendering (instead of Static site generation like Gatsby). Nice to know!

Next.js looks like a front-end only but that's not the case. It has access to node APIs and we can also use npm packages directly in Next.js apps so there is no need of maintaining separate codebases for front-end and back-end.

It's also easy to use static site generator as compared to Gatsby
