Search - "nextjs"
So during my internship I learned a lot about Linux, Docker and servers and I recently switched from a shared hosting to my own VPS. On this VPS I currently have one nginx server running that serves a static ReactJs application. This is temponarily, I SFTP-ed the build files to the server and added a config file for ssl, ciphers and dhparams. I plan to change it later to a nextjs application with a ci/di pipeline etc. I also added a 'runuser' that owns the /srv/web directory in which the webserver files are located. Ssh has passwords disabled and my private keys have passphrases.
Now that I it's been running for a few days I noticed a lot of requests from botnets that tried to access phpmyadmin and adminpanels on my server which gave me quite a scare. Luckily my website does not have a backend and I would never expose phpmyadmin like that if I did have it.
Now my question is:
Do you guys know any good articles or have tips and tricks for securing my server and future projects? Are there any good practices that I should absolutely read and follow? (Like not exposing server details etc., php version, rate limiting). I really want to move forward with my quest for knowledge and feel like I should have a good basis when it comes to managing a server, especially with the current privacy laws in place.
Thanks in advance for enduring my rant and infodump 😅7
I came acorss this website
This is one of the FASTEST loading websites i have ever browsed. The interactivity is so smooth and seamless. No lags or stutters. Reloading the page takes under 0.1 seconds. The dude was so bored he even used click .mp3 sounds as you click or hover over links and buttons
This site is built in nextjs.
I keep seeing more and more nextjs sites. In job search i keep seeing nextjs requirements way more than before.
I cannot believe nextjs is this fast and powerful. It's not even hard to learn.
This motivates me to learn nextjs from a-z now36
Fuck web development - especially CSS. Actually only CSS.
Love Js/Ts, Vue, React (NextJs ftw) and especially thank you to SCSS for making things easier.
But CSS is my most detested LaNgUagE now.
After I finish these 2 projects, I’m not doing CSS anymore. Minimal touches, sure, but no more positioning.
Maybe that’s why I like Flutter, no hassles yet.20
I got a call from HR today.
I have 3 years of experience in developing mobile applications, and my technical skills include React Native, ReactJS, and NextJS.
Looking for remote jobs or hybrid in Bangalore, India.
I can join immediately, any leads/referrals would be greatly appreciated.
Here's my LinkedIn profile: https://linkedin.com/in/...16

I just finished up an absolute cesspool of a project. I was seriously reconsidering a career change to something less stressful, like welding on a high-rise building, or capturing Somali pirates.
Next project is supposed to be a walk in the park, and probably still will be.
MGR: You're starting a new project next week. Prismic for the CMS, and NextJS.
ME: Oh, okay, cool. Well, let me get up to speed on Prismic and Next since I haven't used either of those.
Spent some time last week - easy enough, nothing really new/ground breaking here.
Sprint 0.5 Kick off meeting today
MGR: By the way, we're still using Prismic for the CMS, but we're gonna go ahead and use Gatsby instead of Next.
Me: ... *facepalm5
Hi, I just created this website ( for myself ). then thought, would be nice to get some feedbacks.
It can download videos, images, playlist, reels ( & you name it ) from Youtube, Instagram, Facebook, Tiktok, Pinterest etc.
Created using NextJS, Material UI, usm-redux ( https://npmjs.com/package/... ), etc
Feel free to give it a try. Thanks18
I don't understand Laravel...
I'm just a software undergrad in my final year. Coming from JS side of things (Express, NextJS), I find Laravel so complex, and maybe unnessecarily complex?
Like, when I wanna learn Laravel, I understand the MVC structure. However, going deeper into it, there are libraries/names like
ALL OF THESE
WHICH I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW IT TIES TO THE FUCKING MVC STRUCTURE
I'm seriously giving up... My courses forces us to learn this framework, and I feel more and more inadequate because I have so many things to learn, including things for my FYP, which involves the use of NextJS. And can I mention HOW EASY AND MINIMALISTIC JS FRAMEWORKS ARE?
LIKE, I JUST WANNA MAKE A STUPID FUCKING APP MAN, WHY MUST I KNOW SHIT LIKE ARTISAN MAKE, WHAT THE FUCK VAGRANT IS, HOW GATES ARE RELATED TO POLICIES, HOW POLICIES RELATE TO VIEWS, WHY THE FUCK DOES FACADE EXIST, and other fucking stupid questions I need to ask in order to utilize Laravel correctly?
Don't even get me started on JETSTREAM, FORTIFY, LARAVEL/UI, BREEZE. Like, WHY THE FUCK CAN'T YOU JUST HAVE ONE SINGLE PATTERN, AND THEN HAVE GOOD TUTORIALS RELATED TO THAT ONE SINGLE THING?
I don't know, am I just stupid? Looking at Laravel, I feel like my braincells die more and more looking at the words used, the unusual terms, and the pain that comes with trying to learn it, because I don't have time. I'm going to fucking fail this subject because I have too much other stuff in my life to learn about.
I'm fucking tired man...35
For the very first time, I bought a personal domain, and created my personal website. Kept it simple and in a single page. And it's open source. Check it out at https://shubham.sh/
Built with Next.js and MDX ✨
Let me know if you like it. I'm excited to read your reviews and suggestions.

Taking over a deserter's work, the level of over abstraction and over generalization is off the charts.
WTF-per-minute (WPM): 33
Best? Clojure docs. They have disqus-like thing under every function description where anyone can submit their usage example. One example times forty submissions equals forty examples!
Also w3c specs, nuff said.
Worst? GunJS. Multiple websites that look like each other plus GitHub wiki all with the same content but idk which one should I use, also there is no complete source, you have to look up everywhere. Also NextJS, they’re too busy pitching to investors, there is no way of contacting them, you’re in your own if you choose nextjs, that’s why I banned it everywhere I have the power to ban things
If you feel it’s time to change I have a great job offer for you…
proceeds with offer with maximum wage that is half what you earn and by the way you need to know React, TypeScript, NextJS, Redux, NodeJS, ES6, Webpack, RESTful i GraphQL API
Nice to have is Python and Go
Girl you need to decide if it’s great offer or technology mishmash.
Hell no, glad you didn’t mentioned young and dynamic team cause I clearly see some dynamic technology stack there.
Company helps people find medical treatment clearly forgot about treatment on their stack.
Someone needs to tell them their tech leads are complete morons but since you’re not looking for head of technology it won’t be me lol.
Why the fuck nobody talks about Multi-page apps?! We went from a Web where everything was Multi-page server-rendered, and now everything for Web developers is "Single-page apps".
What about websites who can't do that? Not everything can be a single-page app. Only my uncle's restaurant website, or something which is TRULY a full app. No half choices.
If your website is a multi-page app/portal which actually PRELOADS data, instead of doing 100 fetch to an API within a page that is full of loading bars, well, your life is a pain.
When you want a first contentful paint which isn't a white page, well, your life is a pain.
What are React, Vue, Ember, Angular (let's exclude Svelte and Marko) going to do about Multi-page apps and SSR?
React-router sucks to me. It's performance is weak and it's useful only when you have an SPA with multiple sections which can be treated as pages (e.g. A single SPA divided in tabs).
Server-side rendering is the worst pain ever made by humanity, in React (and prob Vue, I didn't try but I can bet). And even when made easier from libs like Svelte and Marko, I (personally) can't get it to be faster enough compared to a traditional website without a JS framework and with a templating engine.
Anyways, if there's anything that I learnt from React, is to stay away from Next.js. Perfect, beautiful, mess.
All JS frameworks just seem to bloat the code and make it worse and slower, even though they're REALLY helpful.
Why? Why everyone loves them if their downsides are so clear? Why 3 projects out of 3 I made (1 React SSR, 1 Vue, 1 Marko SSR) are and will stay painfully slow and bloated, full of shit, even if in 2020 we should have evolved with the famous three shaking, with the famous lazy loading, etc.?
I am just frustrated.
And let's not even talk about Webpack, Rollup, Lasso, those module bundlers shit which are harder to configure and understand than finding a needle in a haystack.
Lasso was the easiest to configure but I anyways can't understand it. Webpack seems it was made to handle SPAs, as any tool in this freaking world, and not even considering an easy way to integrate multiple bundles for multiple pages (I know it's pretty easy, but with component sharing between pages and big unique bundles Next.js handles it soooo bad it feels like hell).
Am I the only one?
Sorry for the long rant. I just needed to rant right now.17
Tailwind css offers a premium package where you have to pay $300 for access to their tailwind styling components. And even additional $150 and $150 and $150 packages depending if your app is for ecommerce application ui or marketing etc.
While in Angular Google has provided 100% FREE MATERIAL DESIGN UI COMPONENTS
WHO THE FUCK PREFERS TO CODE IN REACT/NEXTJS/VUE over ANGULAR???23
If you’re ever feel tired of annoying corporate presence everywhere, go straight to Next.js issues on github.
Since zeit (the company behind it) are too busy polishing their pitches and building more and more fragile betas, no one will ever help you with your problem there. They literally pitch and release more often than writing anything there.
People are seem to have built the help community there all by themselves, and the more I look at it the more it reminds me of SCP Foundation IKEA (http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-3008) where people forever stuck in eerie infinite IKEA with no exit just built the whole new society.2
Important thing I learned is not to listen to devs who suggest to learn a framework because its pointless
If i ask should i learn react or angular, some will say angular some react, and both have valid arguments why
When i branch to react and ask if i should learn nextjs or nuxtjs the same thing will happen
No matter if the arguments are valid or not people will prefer a framework they have been biased towards
All frameworks have cons and pros there is no such thing as "the one" perfect framework
No matter how framework is good people will always find a reason to take a shit on it
So from now i wont ask IF i should learn framework X, I'll ask for the order in which to learn it
For example i Know i want to learn A for whatever reason, should i first learn framework B or C?
I dont need your subjective opinion to tell me how B or C sucks and i should do D instead of A5
Ok now that I learned react and nextjs i just want to say that I FUCKING HATE REACT AND NEXTJS FUCK YOU THIS SHIT IS SO STRESSING AND MIND CONSUMING. I'D RATHER USE ANGULAR EVEN FOR A SMALL PROJECT WHICH IS AN OVERKILL THAN REACT. I'LL USE REACT ONLY IF IM FORCED TO USE REACT AND HAVE NO ALTERNATIVE.18
Who led this flattening user input object into the Next.js codebase, also thinking that `runContext` is going to make better companion than `eval`?
Yet another reason to switch over Sapper and other Svelte minimalistic solutions, in my opinion.1
Any ReactJS developer here? Just wanted to ask, how do you handle SEO with ReactJS SPA? Do you follow any tutorial to convert it to SSR? Or do you just use NextJS instead?
A few days ago, I thought, "I haven't updated React dependencies since. So, let's do it". Because, its gonna be a new demo app, I just ran "npx create-react-app my-app" and npm start inside the project. Holy cow!! It doesn't even start!!
Its showing this unknown error! So, I googled. but after trying a lot of "Solutions" it still doesn't work. So, I just gave up and thinking, "What about the Frameworks/Libraries build on top of ReactJS? Do the also have the same problem?"
So, I created a NextJS project and you guessed it, The same error exists in the NextJS projects. Then I tried the popular boilerplates created using NextJS ( and React) and Volla! They also contain the same error!
Ugghhh! I thought, tonight I'm gonna play with NextJS a little bit. But unfortunately, because of this React Error, I can't :(4
I cant believe how powerful and FAST nextjs is. Very smooth and lightweight. Easy to work with.
Also angular became super fast and smooth. 5 years ago in 2018 i remember working in angular and it was not that fast. The project structure was a bit messy. But now everything has drastically improved and became simplified.
I love both now. Happy to be working in both4
i have to say Laravel sucks comparing it to something like aspnet, Nestjs, Nextjs or Express i found myself overwhelmed with learning in a very short period and what makes things worst is the fact that no one in the agency i am in is helping or speaking with me i asked help from a Senior guy and he was like "i am too busy"...
I also can't quit since this internship is for school purpose so yes rip for me3
Finally im starting to get hang of how nextjs works. Still no idea how query params work, routing api calls, the proper structure, useEffect vs useState, SSR vs static props, etc but i wrote the messiest spaghetti code youve ever seen, and it works! I built a frankenstein. And its alive. Cleaning this shit up is the least difficult part4
Im deploying a nextjs site via amazon aws amplify. Working with amazon is truly hell. But once it works its truly amazing. Jess bozos have outdone himself. I still dont understand what im doing every time im using aws. Its just trial and error every time for me. (note i still cant deploy the site to my domain there is some build error. Hours of fucking with this and still cant resolve it). However i somehow managed to assign an Amazon SSL Certificate to my domain9
I know angular but not react or nextjs. Should i learn nextjs or react first? Since nextjs uses react and adds additional features13
Ok. If you had a blog made with next.js and mongodb, and you are too depressed and lazy to learn AWS lambda/serverless, where would you deploy?15
I tried building a project with nextjs. I dont like it. Angular is still better. Nextjs might be more lightweight but i dont care. Theres way too much shit i need to write and theres no boilerplate code like there is in angular. Also in angular components can be grouped in 1 directory and from there you group its services interceptors guards scss typescript html etc. In nextjs all of that shit is thrown in /pages and /components while styles go to /styles. Reasonable, but what happens when the application is large as shit? Thats why angular will always win long term2
When i deploy my nextjs app via aws amplify, on some specific pages the @media styles are not working. Why?2
I need nextjs tips
Im coding in nextjs for the first time because the framework i need to use only supports nextjs/vite/react. I have no idea how this framework works and im literally googling for almost every single bit. Also using chatgpt as copilot. Heck im googling even how to do routing here. The code is probably gonna be total shit.
Anyone can give me some tips in nextjs on how to keep the code clean? How is a project supposed to be structured?6
Have you guys tried IntersectionObserver with NextJS? How did you initialise it for server side rendering ?14
