Netlify Announces Next.js Integration, Enabling Next.js 10 for Enterprise Teams

By ET Bureau - March 17, 2021 3 Mins Read


New zero-configuration Essential Next.js plugin automatically provisions Netlify for Next.js alongside Netlify’s security and compliance features

Netlify, pioneer of the modern Jamstack web architecture, today announced the ability to auto-detect and install Next.js applications with zero configuration, fully integrating the popular web framework with the Netlify developer experience. Now, for the first time, businesses can run Next.js 10 on enterprise-ready infrastructure with critical features for teams. This includes role-based access, SAML single sign-on, two-factor authentication, integration with self-hosted GitLab and GitHub, and SOC 2 Type 2 attestation.

Freedom to choose a framework, without compromise
Netlify is designed for teams to modernize web architecture and workflow without locking in a JavaScript framework. With this new integration, teams can choose what’s optimal for every project and team. Each team can easily migrate to Next.js from another framework or choose from a rapidly evolving ecosystem of frameworks such as Angular, 11ty, Nuxt.js, Vue.js and more.

The new Next.js integration means that configuration and feature support is automatically enabled on Netlify without requiring any setup. Netlify auto-detects the framework and enables support for:

  • Preview mode: Server-side render a live preview of a web app to share, gather feedback and make changes in real-time without ever requiring a build.
  • Next.js 10: Key elements of Next.js 10 and up are enabled on Netlify including internationalized routing and React 17 support.
  • Atomic and immutable deploys: Full compatibility with incremental static regeneration and server-side rendering techniques by serving via Netlify Functions.

Netlify is also developing a solution to more effectively handle Incremental Static Regeneration (ISR) in Next.js. For large applications, it’s appealing to have “unbuilt” pages that render at runtime instead of build time, but, with other solutions that implement ISR, this comes at the cost of breaking atomic and immutable deploys. The result is an inconsistent user experience and operational complexity. Netlify is actively developing an approach that can solve these compromises and further bring that functionality to other JavaScript frameworks.

Next.js apps ready for enterprise teams
In addition to offering deep integration with Next.js, Netlify offers a unique set of capabilities that make it possible for large enterprise teams to run Next.js applications.

  • Unified development workflow: Build, test, deploy and manage frontend and serverless code together from a single Git-based workflow. Use powerful Netlify features like Deploy Previews, Split Testing, and instant rollbacks across the entire app.
  • Release management controls: Handle even the most complex web rollouts with features such as build settings and environmental variables tailored to branches, split testing for managed rollouts, and controls to limit publishing to the main branch.
  • Security and compliance: Netlify supports businesses with security requirements including SOC 2 Type 2 attestation, SAML single sign-on (SSO) support, role-based access control and two-factor authentication.
  • Self-hosted GitHub and GitLab integration: Use Netlify with enterprise versions of GitHub and GitLab that are often self-hosted. The integration is enabled and managed from the Netlify UI.
  • 24/7/365 production support: A dedicated support engineer and solutions engineer who knows each team and their tech stack. Available via phone, Slack and email with a guaranteed response SLA.
