Overview of this book

Building large-scale applications in production can be overwhelming with the amount of tooling choices and lack of cohesive resources. To address these challenges, this hands-on guide covers best practices and web application development examples to help you build enterprise-ready applications with React in no time. Throughout the book, you’ll work through a real-life practical example that demonstrates all the concepts covered. You’ll learn to build modern frontend applications—built from scratch and ready for production. Starting with an overview of the React ecosystem, the book will guide you in identifying the tools available to solve complex development challenges. You’ll then advance to building APIs, components, and pages to form a complete frontend app. The book will also share best practices for testing, securing, and packaging your app in a structured way before finally deploying your app with scalability in mind. By the end of the book, you’ll be able to efficiently build production-ready applications by following industry practices and expert tips.
Table of Contents (13 chapters)


In this chapter, our focus has been on building the pages of our application.

We started by looking at how routing works in Next.js. Then we covered the rendering strategies we will be using. After that, we built the SEO component, which injects content into the head of the page.

We then configured the layout system for our pages. At the end of the chapter, we built the pages for our application. To build the content for our pages, we used test data that was predefined. We used test data to render content on the pages, but we still need to make real API calls.

In the next chapter, we will learn how to mock the API endpoints, which we can use during development to make HTTP requests and fetch data as if we were consuming the real API.
