Next.js Static File Serving

Hello folks! welcome back to a new section of our tutorial on Next.js. In this section of our tutorial on Next.js, we will be discussing about Next.js Static File Serving.

In Next.js, we can serve static page such as images very easily by putting them in public, a top level directory. We can refer these files in similar way like pages in pages directory.

In Next.js, a page is a React component and are exported from the pages directory. Each page is associated with a route based on its file name.

Now let us update the nextjs project used in Next.js Pages tutorial.

Create a public directory and put any image within it. For the purpose of this tutorial, we have utilized logo.jpeg, WebDesignTutorialz Logo image.

Update first.js with the following content -

import Link from 'next/link'

export default function FirstPost() {
   return (
         <h1>My First Post</h1>
            <Link href="/">
         <img src="/logo.jpeg" alt="WebDesignTutorialz Logo" />

Here we've added a reference to logo.jpeg in index.js file.
