Nuxt Vs Next Js

Posted on  by admin

Nextjs is a javascript framework that uses ReactJs Framework, it provides a better experience for various things like server-side rendering, serving static files, smart handling of bundles, it helps in optimizing images, scripts, and many more things.

Next.js is open source and free to use Javascript web application framework which is developed on ReactJs, NodeJs. ReactJs is also a free and open-source Javascript Library that is used to create a user interface using UI components, it was developed by Meta (Facebook) and maintained by them. It can be used for developing various types of mobile apps and for developing single-page web applications.

This feature of Next Js will allow it to generate an HTML page at the build time and later on when the server gets a request for the same page it will reuse that same pre-generated HTML page.

Also, pages that are created using static generation can be saved in cached using a CDN server without any type of configuration which will help to increase the performance of that page in terms of speed and loading time.

  • This feature can even be used with dynamic data pages like articles or blog posts.
  • Using SSR we can not save the page in cache or use CDN server for it, as Next Js SSR generate HTML page on every request even to the same page which make it slow as compared to Static Page Generation.
  • Next Js lets users import CSS files using the concept of import from any Javascript file.

It supports Sass Support using either .scss or .sass options extensions and also supports CSS-in-JS .

  • Next.Js allows React Js models to break a page into different pieces of ReactJs UI components which the user can reuse in different pages like use might have a duplicate menu, sidebar, bottom footer part, etc.
  • In NextJs we have ‘next/image’ evolved for the advanced web apps, which is image component extension of HTML element ‘< img / >’, it helps to have different type of builtin performance optimization which support to get better core web vitals.
  • Following are a few optimizations built into the NextJs Image component:.

Improved Performance: Using modern image formats it always serves required-sized images for all devices. Faster Page Loads: Images will get only loaded when they enter the viewport, with optional blur-up placeholders.

Visual Stability: Prevent Cumulative Layout Shift automatically. Asset Flexibility: It provides on-demand image resizing, even for images that are stored on remote servers.

Using ‘next/script’ Nextjs Script component which is an extension of HTML element ‘ < script >’ allows user to set priority for loading third-party scripts anywhere in the page without any requirement of adding directly to the head, these help users time and it also helps in increasing loading performance of the application.
