A Plug for Razzle & Next

My last post (a year ago, sigh) was about how to configure a JavaScript application from scratch. Since then, I’ve built an isomorphic Node and React app that’s doing pretty well in production and learnt a lot of lessons along the way.

If you are looking for the “Rails” of the JS world, I have two suggestions for you:

  • Razzle: more configurable SSR solution that comes with most batteries included!
  • Next: lovely DX, super-fast defaults, and amazing traction (they have a collaboration with Google), but a bit less customisable.

My app was built in Razzle, but if I was to start today, I’d probably choose Next instead!
