NextJS is a framework that enables you to create server-rendered React applications. It has a number of features that make it good for ecommerce applications, such as:
- Automatic code splitting: This means that your application will be loaded faster, as the browser will only download the code that is necessary to render the current page.
- Static site generation: This feature can be used to generate static versions of your pages, which can be hosted on a CDN for even faster performance.
- SEO friendly: NextJS automatically generates unique, SEO-friendly URLs for each page in your application.
There are other frameworks that can be used for ecommerce applications ( such as Laravel or Ruby on Rails), but NextJS provides a good balance of features and performance.
