    > SSR vs client side: NextJs does this automatically.

    Uh-huh. Do some simple stackoverflow searches for how to configure a real Next/Vercel app with error-handling, passing thru cookie/session state, or how to wire up third party services or components. Or check out next.js issue search for "window undefined" - -> 1667 issues right now. Even if you discount 3/4 of those as duplicates, developer error, etc, you have a ton of issues where figuring out server vs client state is confusing for many folks.

    It sounds like has worked great for you out of the box, which is great! But that isn't the case for many other developers.

    This is not my definition of "automatic".

    > I'd use tRPC

    This looks pretty compelling if you are all-in with TS everywhere, including your server/data access layer. Which doesn't apply in the OP's post, since it's a traditional CRUD app with python in front of good ole' PSQL DB.

    > monitoring/observability: not quite sure what you mean, but it's only a few clicks in vercel to have a logdrain or metric drain

    We are using Vercel routing its logs to datadog right now. It works fine but is extremely limited. Want to wire up full-stack transactions w/ the rest of your app, or modify _what_ it logs? Good luck.

    Also, trying to use a real APM (Datadog, Scout, open source, whatever) is a complete non-starter. You need a persistent process running somewhere to take the data, buffer, and transport it _somewhere_, and so far you can't do that with Vercel's custom server support. You _can_ do this with just NextJS (no vercel), but it requires some frightening hacks I would not be comfortable adding to apps I maintain:

    I get that Vercel provides a very quick setup and a smooth dev experience, especially if you are in their sweet spot of something like a static site or blog engine. It just seems more trouble than its worth for most CRUD apps, especially anything that isn't 100% in the javascript/typescript world.

    First, here’s a brief summary of how, before now, I would perform such site moves. The term project below refers to a website instance in my web host of choice, Cloudflare Pages. Terms vary from host to host (e.g., Vercel also calls them projects, while Netlify calls them sites), but you understand what I mean.

    Thanks for taking a look! I use the for OAuth (to spare people having to remember yet another password) and I believe it uses cookies to prevent OAuth replay attacks. Thanks for highlighting this. I'll work on a better error message if cookies are not enabled.

  • og-image

    Open Graph Image as a Service - generate cards for Twitter, Facebook, Slack, etc

    Project mention: How does github-readme-stats work? | | 2022-07-11

    It’s not embedding. When you paste that image url a serverless function running a headless browser requests say a next app which loads up a page based on the params in the url. Then we take a snapshot and image data is sent back as response to you hence the image appears. You can check out this: with NextJS and puppeteer

    Project mention: Question about ISR on API paths | | 2022-08-07

    So I took a look at the Build Output API on Vercel and noticed this example. As you can see here the json API response on the /data path is cached for a specified time, seemingly like ISR. My question: is it possible to do this directly in Nextjs, using ISR on an API route? Thanks!

This tutorial focuses on building your own implementation, however you may not need to depending on whether or not you're satisfied with the other options available.
