To build the frontend of an application or website, in simple words the part with which end users interact, there are several frameworks and technologies, but there are two that have managed to stand out over the years: ReactJS and Next.js.
As an optimized Node.js framework, Next.js has everything a developer could need and more. Within this framework, default capabilities include making sure applications are stable and can withstand the test of time and any vulnerabilities that may come their way.
Fast Refresh is a feature of Next.js that gives you instant feedback on edits made to your React components. The fast update is enabled by default in all Next.js applications on version 9.4 or later. With Next.js Fast Refresh enabled, most edits should be visible within a second, without losing the component state.
ReactJS is an open source library developed by a team at Facebook to create single-page app user interfaces. This library was born due to a performance problem suffered by the social network application, which had been working with a typical system of links between views and data, but due to a large number of connections between both layers, the performance of the application was affected.
To note the differences between each technology, we are going to detail the advantages of each one:
Knowing the advantages of each one, it is up to the frontend developer to decide which one best suits the needs of the project.
