This was really great and easy to follow, thanks for the tutorial!

One small bit of feedback would be to change the check-user.js api route to use a non-200 statusCode for an unauthenticated user.

export default async (req, res) => {
  const { Auth } = withSSRContext({ req })
  try {
    const user = await Auth.currentAuthenticatedUser()
    res.json({ user: user.username })
  } catch (err) {
    res.statusCode = 401
    res.json({ user: null })
