Building and Configuring Pages

In the previous chapters, we have configured the base of our application, including the setup of the application, and shared UI components that will serve as the foundation of our UI.

In this chapter, we can proceed by creating our application pages. We will learn how routing in Next.js works and what rendering methods we can use to get the most out of Next.js. Then, we will learn about configuring per-page layouts, making our application look and feel like a single-page application.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Next.js routing
  • Next.js rendering strategies
  • Next.js SEO
  • Layouts
  • Building the pages

By the end of this chapter, we will learn how to create pages in Next.js and get a better understanding of selecting different rendering strategies depending on the needs of the application.
