Next.JS is a formidable React Framework for stationary and server applications. The Version 8 of Next.JS comes in in with smart features like Server.JS without the server. This unique feature does not require a server to deploy the application as the application is split into smaller parts so that the code can run as and when need arises as well as expand automatically.
Attractive features of Next.JS version 8
- Security improvements: Enhanced Security features form an interesting part of the Nest.JS framework. The earlier versions of Next.JS required using additional parameters to enable content security policy. However, this version comes in with a configuration option by name, ‘Cross Origin’ option which ensures that all ‘script’ tags have the ‘cross-origin’ set. This new feature does not require the customary ‘pages/ document.js’ to configure the cross origin application.
- Better build-time memory usage: Memory utilization forms a key aspect of a strong application. Next.JS version 8 works towards a better build-time memory usage with no compromise on performance. This also ensures continuity in the process without any major hurdles. The Next.js team, and the Webpack team, have put in a collective performance to improve the compilation performance and resource utilization of Next.js and Webpack.
- Enhanced performance: Next.JS 8 comes with the ‘Prefetch’ option which loads earlier pages for faster navigation. This was not the case with earlier versions of Next.JS as previously, users had to inject a “script” tag into the “body” of the document, which caused an overload when opening pages.
- Operating in Serverless mode: One of the more attractive features accompanying the Node.JS version 8 is its performance in Serverless mode. With the application split up into smaller parts called lambdas, the Server less method ensures more reliability and scalability options.
- Quicker Stationary Support: Another interesting feature with the Next.JS version 8 is the ‘Pre-rendering’ feature, aimed at an enhanced performance. The Pre-rendering feature operates in two types; Server Rendering and Static Rendering. This feature from Next.JS version 8 automatically detects the number of CPU’s present in the system and accordingly distributes pages with the ‘Next Export’ option, thereby considerably improving speed and performance.

- A Solid API authentication: By using a cookie, which shares a token between the client side and server side rendering, Node .JS version 8 comes with an authentication set up which ensures only authenticated data to reach the user’s side. Any external API data can be authenticated and shared with the final user by adopting this process.
- Reduced HTML Size: The HTML data size with version 8 was reduced as much as 23% as compared to the earlier version. This was done by cutting down the loading of the error page along with every normal page.
- Hot Module Replacement(HMR) and Error Reporting: This facility is a very effective introduction to the Node.JS version 8. What HMR does is, instead of reloading an entire application when code is changed, it will only recreate modules that have been changed. Subsequently only those incorrect codes will be rendered to the browser. Every developer is aware of the struggle of spending more time than they’d be willing to admit on finding a bug, only to find out that the issue was embarrassingly trivial. Next.JS version 8 eliminates this problem and allows developers to work with great efficiency.
