Welcome to the second issue of the Awesome Next.js newsletter!
What a week before the holidays and wrapping up this crazy year.
Vercel also open sourced the Virtual Event Starter Kit, the Next.js app built to run Next.js Conf. This is the second starter kit Vercel released after Next.js Commerce. Lots of interesting nuggets to find when digging through the source code.
The React team made a big announcement this week as well. They introduced zero-bundle-size React Server components. React Server components are still in research and development, but they collaborate with the Next.js team and React Server components will be integrated into Next.js. Also see this detailed Twitter thread discussing what React Server Components will mean for the ecosystem and frameworks like Next.js.
Community videos and articles
Lee Robinson also released a short tutorial on how Internationalization (I18n) works with Next.js. I'm stoked Next.js has now built-in support for internationalized routing coming from Switzerland, a country with four language regions: German, French, Italian and Romansh.
