Share It With Your Firends:

Welcome to our Next.js Crash Course! In this exciting tutorial, we’ll take you on a journey to build a powerful full-stack web application using Next.js, the popular React framework. Next.js brings server-side rendering, easy routing, and efficient data fetching, making it a fantastic choice for modern web development. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced developer, this crash course will equip you with the essential Next.js skills to create professional web applications.

Let’s dive in step-by-step into the different topics covered in this tutorial:

Setting Up the Next.js Project

To get started, make sure you have Node.js installed on your machine. Open your terminal and create a new Next.js project using the following commands:

npx create-next-app@latest my-app
cd my-app

This will create a new Next.js project with the name “my-app” and change your current directory to the project folder.

File Structure

A well-organized file structure is crucial for maintaining productivity and efficiency. It involves categorizing files into folders and subfolders based on their purpose and implementing a consistent naming convention. Regular decluttering is also important to keep the file structure streamlined. By implementing an effective file structure, users can save time, stay organized, and reduce the risk of losing important data.

Components

Components are the building blocks of React applications. Create a new component in the /components folder, for instance, Navbar.js:

import React from 'react'
import Link from 'next/link'

const Navbar = () => {
  return (
    <header className='px-10 py-5 border-b border-gray-200 flex gap-10 justify-between items-center'>
        <h1 className='text-xl font-bold'>Next</h1>
        <div className='flex gap-5 items-center'>
            <Link href={"/"}>Home</Link>
            <Link href={"/about"}>About</Link>
            <Link href={"/contact"}>Contact</Link>
        </div>
    </header>
  )
}

export default Navbar
import React from 'react'

const Banner = ({title, description}) => {
  return (
    <div className='py-10 flex flex-col gap-10 items-center justify-center'>
        <h1 className='text-4xl font-extrabold'>
            {title}
        </h1>
        <p className='text-lg text-gray-500'>{description}</p>
        </div>
  )
}

export default Banner
import Banner from "@/components/Banner";

export default function Home() {
  
  return (
    <div>
      <Banner title={"Home"} description={"this is our home page."}/>
    </div>
  )
}

API Routes

Route Handlers can be placed inside the `app` folder, just like `page.js` and `layout.js`. However, it is not allowed to have a `route.js` file in the same route segment level as `page.js`.

import { NextResponse } from "next/server";

export async function GET(){
    // return NextResponse.json({message: "api route"}, {status: 200})
    return new NextResponse("api route")
}

export async function POST(request){
    const data = await request.json();
    console.log(data);
    return new NextResponse(JSON.stringify(data))
}
