FeathersJS vs Next.js: What are the differences?

What is FeathersJS? Real-time, micro-service web framework for NodeJS. Feathers is a real-time, micro-service web framework for NodeJS that gives you control over your data via RESTful resources, sockets and flexible plug-ins.

What is Next.js? *A small framework for server-rendered universal JavaScript apps *. Next.js is a minimalistic framework for server-rendered React applications.

FeathersJS and Next.js are primarily classified as "Microframeworks (Backend)" and "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools respectively.

"Datastore Agnostic" is the top reason why over 2 developers like FeathersJS, while over 9 developers mention "Automatic server rendering and code splitting" as the leading cause for choosing Next.js.

FeathersJS and Next.js are both open source tools. It seems that Next.js with 38.2K GitHub stars and 4.6K forks on GitHub has more adoption than FeathersJS with 11K GitHub stars and 473 GitHub forks.

Avocode, OverCode Solutions, and CybrHome are some of the popular companies that use Next.js, whereas FeathersJS is used by DeliciousDB, Datafactor GmbH, and Koola. Next.js has a broader approval, being mentioned in 79 company stacks & 66 developers stacks; compared to FeathersJS, which is listed in 19 company stacks and 14 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to FeathersJS and Next.js?
      Sails.js
      Sails is designed to mimic the MVC pattern of frameworks like Ruby on Rails, but with support for the requirements of modern apps: data-driven APIs with scalable, service-oriented architecture.
      Meteor
      A Meteor application is a mix of JavaScript that runs inside a client web browser, JavaScript that runs on the Meteor server inside a Node.js container, and all the supporting HTML fragments, CSS rules, and static assets.
      LoopBack
      A highly-extensible, open-source Node.js framework that enables you to create dynamic end-to-end REST APIs with little or no coding. Connect to multiple data sources, write business logic in Node.js, glue on top of your existing services and data, connect using JS, iOS & Android SDKs.
      AdonisJS
      It is a Node.js Framework which is highly focused on developer ergonomics, stability and confidence.
      NestJS
      Nest is a framework for building efficient, scalable Node.js server-side applications. It uses progressive JavaScript, is built with TypeScript (preserves compatibility with pure JavaScript) and combines elements of OOP (Object Oriented Programming), FP (Functional Programming), and FRP (Functional Reactive Programming). Under the hood, Nest makes use of Express, but also, provides compatibility with a wide range of other libraries, like e.g. Fastify, allowing for easy use of the myriad third-party plugins which are available.

      I just finished a web app meant for a business that offers training programs for certain professional courses. I chose this stack to test out my skills in graphql and react. I used Node.js , GraphQL , MySQL for the #Backend utilizing Prisma as a database interface for MySQL to provide CRUD APIs and graphql-yoga as a server. For the #frontend I chose React, styled-components for styling, Next.js for routing and SSR and Apollo for data management. I really liked the outcome and I will definitely use this stack in future projects.

      When we started thinking about technology options for our own Design System, we wanted to focus on two primary goals

      1. Build a design system site using design system components - a living prototype
      2. Explore new ways of working to position our technical capabilities for the future

      We have a small team of developers responsible for the initial build so we knew that we couldn鈥檛 spend too much time maintaining infrastructure on the Backend. We also wanted freedom to make decisions on the Frontend with the ability to adapt over time.

      For this first iteration we decided to use Node.js, React, and Next.js. Content will be managed via headless CMS in prismic.io.

      1. Next.js so that we can run React serverside without worrying about server code.
      2. prismic.io so that our content is accessible via API and our frontend is fully independent.

      Recently I have been working on an open source stack to help people consolidate their personal health data in a single database so that AI and analytics apps can be run against it to find personalized treatments. We chose to go with a #containerized approach leveraging Docker #containers with a local development environment setup with Docker Compose and nginx for container routing. For the production environment we chose to pull code from GitHub and build/push images using Jenkins and using Kubernetes to deploy to Amazon EC2.

      We also implemented a dashboard app to handle user authentication/authorization, as well as a custom SSO server that runs on Heroku which allows experts to easily visit more than one instance without having to login repeatedly. The #Backend was implemented using my favorite #Stack which consists of FeathersJS on top of Node.js and ExpressJS with PostgreSQL as the main database. The #Frontend was implemented using React, Redux.js, Semantic UI React and the FeathersJS client. Though testing was light on this project, we chose to use AVA as well as ESLint to keep the codebase clean and consistent.

      At IT Minds we create customized internal or #B2B web and mobile apps. I have a go to stack that I pitch to our customers consisting of 3 core areas. 1) A data core #backend . 2) A micro #serverless #backend. 3) A user client #frontend.

      For the Data Core I create a backend using TypeScript Node.js and with TypeORM connecting to a PostgreSQL Exposing an action based api with Apollo GraphQL

      For the micro serverless backend, which purpose is verification for authentication, autorization, logins and the likes. It is created with Next.js api pages. Using MongoDB to store essential information, caching etc.

      Finally the frontend is built with React using Next.js , TypeScript and @Apollo. We create the frontend as a PWA and have a AMP landing page by default.

      Django

      I've been using Django for quite a long time and in my opinion I would never switch from it. My company is currently using Django with REST framework and a part in GraphQL using Graphene. On the frontend we use Next.js and so far everything has been running quite good. I've found limitations but manage to solve it.

      As someone mentioned before, if you are comfortable with Django, don't switch. There's no need since with django you can basically achieve anything. Of course this will depend on the project you want to build, but the scalability and flexibility django can offer it's just out of this world. (Don't want to sound like a fan boy haha but it really is).
