Next.js vs PHP-MVC: What are the differences?
Next.js and PHP-MVC can be primarily classified as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
Next.js and PHP-MVC are both open source tools. Next.js with 38.7K GitHub stars and 4.69K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than PHP-MVC with 1.25K GitHub stars and 494 GitHub forks.
CircleCI, Avocode, and OverCode Solutions are some of the popular companies that use Next.js, whereas PHP-MVC is used by BetRocket, Sequoia Waste Solutions, and Digimedia ENVISION. Next.js has a broader approval, being mentioned in 82 company stacks & 69 developers stacks; compared to PHP-MVC, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 8 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!
