Next.js Deployment

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

So far, we have developed and run sample Next.js application in dev mode, now we'll perform the production ready deployment locally using the following steps -

  • npm run build - Build the production ready, highly optimized build.
  • npm run start - Start the server.

The production ready build lack the source maps and hot code reloading as compared to dev mode as those features are primarily used in debugging.

Prepare Build

Run the following command to prepare the production ready build -

npm run build

> nextjs@1.0.0 build \Node\nextjs
> next build

info  - Loaded env from \Node\nextjs\.env.local
Creating an optimized production build

Compiled successfully.

?  (Server)  server-side renders at runtime (uses getInitialProps or getServerSideProps)
          (Static)  automatically rendered as static HTML (uses no initial props)
?  (SSG)     automatically generated as static HTML + JSON (uses getStaticProps)

Start the Server

Run the following command below to start the production server -

npm run start

> nextjs@1.0.0 start \Node\nextjs
> next start

info  - Loaded env from \Node\nextjs\.env.local
ready - started server on http://localhost:3000


Open localhost:3000/api/user in a browser and you will see the following result -
