Next.js vs React Storybook: What are the differences?
Next.js can be classified as a tool in the "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category, while React Storybook is grouped under "MVC Tools".
Some of the features offered by Next.js are:
- Zero setup. Use the filesystem as an API
- Automatic server rendering and code splitting
On the other hand, React Storybook provides the following key features:
- Isolated environment for your components (with the use of various iframe tactics).
- Hot module reloading (even for functional stateless components).
- Works with any app (whether it's Redux, Relay or Meteor).
Next.js and React Storybook are both open source tools. React Storybook with 38.9K GitHub stars and 3.19K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Next.js with 38.2K GitHub stars and 4.6K GitHub forks.
Avocode, OverCode Solutions, and CybrHome are some of the popular companies that use Next.js, whereas React Storybook is used by Huddle, Quizlet, and AppsFlyer. Next.js has a broader approval, being mentioned in 79 company stacks & 66 developers stacks; compared to React Storybook, which is listed in 43 company stacks and 22 developer stacks.

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
- Build a design system site using design system components - a living prototype
- 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’t 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.
- Next.js so that we can run React serverside without worrying about server code.
- prismic.io so that our content is accessible via API and our frontend is fully independent.
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.
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).
