I'd love to try using Next.js, but after watching an hour-long tutorial on it, I'm not sure how well it would work with pOS. Can someone enlighten me? Routing looks like a direct conflict with how things are done on pOS.
Can we effectively use Next.js (React) on pOS?
You can use regular react on pOS, either for single page apps (using react router) or for just embedded widgets. But I don't think you would be able to get Next.js working and if you did I you would still miss out of the big features like server side react rendering and static page generation.
Adam CookThank you, Andrew! That's exactly what I needed to know.

Some time ago I experimented with couple Static Site Generators successfully (Gatsby, Hugo, e11ty, Jekyll, Sapper) and my conclusion was this: As long as its output is static html (or sometimes, static files with liquid directives and
.liquid extension) and it/you (by configuration, or using script) can put assets into proper place (
app/assets) it should be compatible.
platformOS does not check/validate how the files got there thus not limiting what it will run.
I didnt inspect what Next is, but if it is another SSG it should just work.
