FullStack Boilerplate vs Next.js: What are the differences?

FullStack Boilerplate: React Native Web with TypeScript, Node.js & GraphQL. The client was built using react-native-web really easy to turn into a mobile app. The server is written in Node.js.and uses GraphQL with apollo-server for delivering data between client and server and typegoose for interacting with Mongo; Next.js: *A small framework for server-rendered universal JavaScript apps *. Next.js is a minimalistic framework for server-rendered React applications.

FullStack Boilerplate and Next.js can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

FullStack Boilerplate and Next.js are both open source tools. It seems that Next.js with 38.7K GitHub stars and 4.7K forks on GitHub has more adoption than FullStack Boilerplate with 11.2K GitHub stars and 3.83K GitHub forks.

Next.js is probably the most enjoyable React framework our team could have picked. The development is an extremely smooth process, the file structure is beautiful and organized, and the speed is no joke. Our work with Next.js comes out much faster than if it was built on pure React or frameworks alike. We were previously developing all of our projects in Meteor before making the switch. We left Meteor due to the slow compiler and website speed. We deploy all of our Next.js projects on Vercel.

Hey guys,

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!
