Create React App vs Next.js: What are the differences?
Create React App and Next.js are both open source tools. It seems that Create React App with 69.4K GitHub stars and 15.8K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Next.js with 38.7K GitHub stars and 4.7K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Next.js has a broader approval, being mentioned in 82 company stacks & 69 developers stacks; compared to Create React App, which is listed in 24 company stacks and 67 developer stacks.
My backend set up is Prisma / GraphQL-Yoga at the moment, and I love it. It's so intuitive to learn and is really neat on the frontend too, however, there were a few gotchas when I was learning! Especially around understanding how it all pieces together (the stack). There isn't a great deal of information out there on exactly how to put into production my set up, which is a backend set up on a Digital Ocean droplet with Prisma/GraphQL Yoga in a Docker Container using Next & Apollo Client on the frontend somewhere else. It's such a niche subject, so I bet only a few hundred people have got a website with this stack in production. Anyway, I wrote a blog post to help those who might need help understanding it. Here it is, hope it helps!
