Hey awesome readers! ๐Ÿš€ Ready to start making cool stuff with code? We're diving into the world of building a full-stack application, and we're doing it using a really helpful tool called Next.js.

What's the Plan?

In this series, we're not simply crafting a website; we're piecing together an entire application. What makes it exciting is that we're constructing this application from the frontend to the backend. That's the essence of being full-stack, and together, we're going to explore and master each step of the process.

Our specific goal is to build a blog, but not just any blog โ€“ a fullstack blog. Picture it: an interactive, snappy platform equipped with all the cool features you'd anticipate from a modern blog.

In this series, we'll cover the entire development process, from setting up the project to deploying the final application.

Here's the thrilling part: as we pursue this mission, we're all diving into the entire tech stack mentioned below. And the best part? We're going to learn and implement each piece to bring our fullstack blog to life using Next.js.

Why This Project?

Building a fullstack blog application provides a hands-on opportunity to explore and apply a wide range of technologies. Throughout this series, we'll not only create a functional blog but also delve into the intricacies of each chosen technology, giving you valuable insights and skills.

The Techie Side of Things

Let's talk tech, but don't worry, we'll keep it simple:

  • Next.js: Our main framework for building React applications. It brings server-side rendering, routing, and other powerful features to the table.

  • TypeScript: Enhancing the developer experience with static typing, TypeScript ensures code reliability and scalability.

  • Prisma: Our go-to database toolkit that simplifies database access with type-safe queries.

  • PostgreSQL (via Supabase): We'll use Supabase, a powerful alternative to traditional databases, to store and manage our blog data.

  • NextAuth.js: For a seamless authentication experience, we'll implement user authentication using NextAuth.js, supporting social logins with Google and GitHub.

Why Next.js?

Ah, the big question! Why Next.js? Well, here's the deal:

Next.js is our go-to choice because:

  • Super Fast: It makes our application lightning-fast with its server-side rendering capabilities.

  • SEO-Friendly: Next.js has SEO built into its core, ensuring our application gets noticed by search engines.

  • Great Developer Experience: It's developer-friendly, making our coding journey enjoyable and efficient.

  • Fullstack Capabilities: Next.js can handle both the frontend and backend, simplifying our fullstack adventure.

The Main Deal: Fullstack Learning!

The big picture? We're not just building any blog; we're learning how to create an end-to-end fullstack application using Next.js. We'll cover all the latest technologies currently used by a ton of open-source projects.

What's Coming Up?

In the next post, we're going to dig into the details of Next.js. We'll start by installing it on our computer, figuring out how it works, and getting ready for our awesome project.

But here's the cool part! We won't stop at the basics. We'll take a close look at Next.js, check out how its folders are organized, and understand the important ideas that make it super useful. So, get ready for a simple and thorough guide on Next.js that will set us up for our exciting fullstack blog project.

Stay tuned for our exploration of Next.js, it's going to be fun!
