I wanted to experiment on SSR with NextJS for a while, and creating a simple blog is a common sample project. As such, cloning my blog was a no-brainer.
The project can be cloned from the GitHub repository below.
The blog consists of two main pages: the home page, which presents the latest 5 posts, and the post page that shows the post's content to the reader. The front page features pagination so the user can navigate through the blog's archive. The post page features a comment section - with nested comments! - for each post.
I tried to minimize the packages installed. In the front-end, I used both SCSS and styled-components for styling, and React Hook Form to handle the comment form. For the API, I used JSON Server - a package that creates a REST API from a JSON file.
Let me read what your thoughts are, and where and how I can improve.
