    This looks cool! If you’d like to have a single web-based codebase for iOS/android/pwa/etc using Next.js then you might like this approach using Capacitor: https://github.com/mlynch/nextjs-tailwind-ionic-capacitor-st...

    The benefit over using RN for this is being able to use libraries like Tailwind on all platforms, etc

    wow, that's a weird limitation.

    The README says: "SSR is currently disabled for the Next.js app as the app will be fully client-side rendered for iOS and Android. This is a limitation we are working to address in a future update."

    I guess it's because CapacitorJS pre-bundles the entire PWA for the App Stores:

    "Of course, you also could load the app completely remotely by changing the server.url configuration for Capacitor to point to your SSR'ed Next.js app, but that has other challenges such as App Store approval if the app doesn't check the boxes for Apple to qualify it as an app that has enough native integration (at that point this is on you, not Capacitor)"


    But I don't understand why SSR would be disabled for the NextJS PWA on the web?

    Maybe Max Lynch aka. @mlynch aka. @yesimahuman could provide some insight here.

  • What framework do you use for styling?
    1 project | reddit.com/r/ionic | 1 Feb 2022
    If you want to use something like tailwind to customize the content of your pages, that is a decent option. You would use Ionic for the shell and Tailwind for your page designs. Take a look at this example if you want to explore that route (in React though): https://github.com/mlynch/nextjs-tailwind-ionic-capacitor-starter
  • Any recommendation to port a production SPA to Nextjs?

    Max Lynch from Ionic has a great repo demonstrating this. He uses it to get Next to work with Ionic and Capacitor but the idea is essentially the same.

    Agreed! Next.js works great with this model! I’d recommend Capacitor over Cordova (similar but more modern). Here’s an example: https://github.com/mlynch/nextjs-tailwind-ionic-capacitor-st...

    You can use Next with React Router, making it function exactly as a React app with nested routes. This project shows this working with Ionic's router, but the same setup can be used with React Router for the same outcome.

    Also, note that this repository is a boilerplate for all 3, which uses ionic capacitor, in one repository: https://github.com/mlynch/nextjs-tailwind-ionic-capacitor-starter , I guess it is not using nextjs SSR capability though.

    If you're confused by all the project names and how they work together, don't worry, I'll break down each part of the stack each project is concerned with, along with some visuals and code samples demonstrating how all the projects work together. At the end I'll share a starter project with these technologies installed and working together that can form the foundation of your next app.
