Next.js CSS Support


Hello folks! welcome back to a new section of our tutorial on Next.js. In this tutorial, we will be studying about Next.js CSS Support.

In Next.js, we can use inbuilt css-in-js library named styled-jsx. It lets us write css within a react component and these css styles will be scoped to component.

In this tutorial post, we are going to create a Container object which will be used to style other components by containing them.

Let's update the nextjs project used in Meta Data tutorial.

First create a Components directory at root level and add a file container.module.css as follows -

.container {
   max-width: 36rem;
   padding: 0 1rem;
   margin: 3rem auto 6rem;
   border: 1px solid red;  
}

Now, create container.js file in Components directory.

import styles from './container.module.css'

function Container({ children }) {
   return <div className={styles.container}>{children}</div>
}

export default Container


Now use Container component in first.js -

import Link from 'next/link'
import Head from 'next/head'
import Container from '../../components/container'

export default function FirstPost() {
   return (
      <>
         <Container>
            <Head>
               <title>My First Post</title>
            </Head>
            <h1>My First Post</h1>
            <h2>
            <Link href="/">
               <a>Home</a>
            </Link>
            </h2>
         </Container>
      </>	  
   )
}

Start Next.js Server

Run the following command below to start the server -

npm run dev
> nextjs@1.0.0 dev \Node\nextjs
> next

ready - started server on http://localhost:3000
event - compiled successfully
event - build page: /
wait  - compiling...
event - compiled successfully
event - build page: /next/dist/pages/_error
