    My outlook on NextJS is more opaque than the other stacks we use. We’ve used it on a few projects and overall had a favorable opinion of it but have yet to find its sweet spot. For purely front-end we default to create-react-app but have had some success with Next. On full-stack/back-end it lacks all the out-of-the box utilities and conventions Rails provides resulting in a lot of external dependencies and bike-shedding on how to structure complex back-end apps. I also think Vercel (maintainer of NextJS) is missing the bus by not having a database option tightly integrated within their stack, which makes it a non-starter for us on most projects. We've found DigitalOcean or Heroku to deliver the best out-of-the-box experience when deploying full-stack NextJS apps that require server-side data persistence.
