Next.js 10 Sets a New Standard for Frontend Development Platforms
NEXT.JS CONF - Vercel, developers of Next.js, the leading React framework, today announced Next.js 10, featuring a number of new industry-first capabilities that accelerate frontend developers' ability to enrich end users' web experiences globally. New innovations announced today include automatic image optimization, internationalized routing and automatic language detection, quick-start e-commerce capabilities and continuous Web Vitals analytics.
Vercel's close collaboration with its customers, in conjunction with partners like Google (News - Alert), Facebook and its community of more than 1,300 open-source contributors have led to the development of Next.js 10, its most powerful release to date. The announcement was made from the first annual Next.js Conf, to more than 70,000 attendees via a custom virtual conference platform developed by Vercel.
"Performance, or lack of it, is the most critical factor in the success or failure of the modern web site," said Vercel CEO Guillermo Rauch. "Next.js 10 addresses the most critical pain points developers face when optimizing their workflows and websites to deliver high quality, highly-performant content at scale. By enabling a true develop-preview-ship-iterate workflow, Next.js 10 makes it easier than ever for them to acieve excellence in web development and helps assure them that their users will have the highest quality web experiences possible, wherever they may be in the world."
The first hybrid framework to succeed at scale, Next.js uniquely satisfies the needs of both static and dynamic websites and applications. Next.js' incremental static generation gives users all the capabilities of a static generator, with the ability to add infinite numbers of pages and update them later without rebuilding the entire site. The ability to leverage React as the fundamental unit of collaboration with the flexibility to scale from one page to one billion pages has led companies including Apple, Twitch, TikTok, Lululemon, Target (News - Alert), Lyft and Hulu to reinvent their frontends with Next.js.
