Netlify has announced the ability to auto-detect and install Next.js applications with zero configuration, fully integrating the popular web framework with the Netlify developer experience.
Now, for the first time, businesses can run Next.js 10 on enterprise-ready infrastructure with critical features for teams. This includes role-based access, SAML single sign-on, two-factor authentication, integration with self-hosted GitLab and GitHub, and SOC 2 Type 2 attestation.
The new Next.js integration means that configuration and feature support is automatically enabled on Netlify without requiring any setup. Netlify auto-detects the framework and enables support for preview mode, Next.js 10 and atomic and immutable deploys.
Netlify is also developing a solution to more effectively handle Incremental Static Regeneration (ISR) in Next.js. For large applications, it’s appealing to have “unbuilt” pages that render at runtime instead of build time, but, with other solutions that implement ISR, this comes at the cost of breaking atomic and immutable deploys. The result is an inconsistent user experience and operational complexity.
The Essential Next.js plugin on Netlify is now available to all Netlify users.
