Cindy's Newsletter #10 - Next.js and my micro SaaS
Why I'm giving up on Next.js for now.
I’ve been going back and forth about using Next.js for my micro SaaS. I had it in the template for a while, but I finally ripped it off and won’t be using it for now. Why not?
In a project that needs that level of performance I would certainly reach for it again, but for a tiny project with an uncertain future and that need low maintenance overhead it’s too painful.
Despite messing with Next.js and related problem, I’m also ready to code the real SaaS features. I’ll be trying to migrate the Divjoy template to React 18 and then integrate Postmark for the newsletter since it’s pretty general. After that, I’ll start digging in the Etsy API!
I did a lot of work on my new eCommerce store for my socks too, it’s almost ready to show. I only need up to finish up a Contact and About page and wrap up payment integration before I can sending a bit of ad traffic to it.
Feeling of the week
