What are we going to work on?
This project is covering basic concepts. You will learn how React and Next JS works.
You will understand the state and props.
This project's main point is to understand basic concepts that will prepare you for the second application.
First, we are going to integrate the base layout of the application. We will break the layout into small pieces, and we will create lots of reusable components such as a navbar, portfolio card, and many others. I will explain how server-side rendering works, how to use different data fetching techniques, and the differences and benefits of fetching on the server versus the client.
The first big feature we will be working on will be authentication. The Auth0 provider will handle authentication. Nevertheless, there will be a lot’s work to handle.
Users will be able to register and login and experience feature only for authenticated users. You will learn how to restrict access to pages and manage authentication state through your application, resulting in UI changes of the application layout.
Next, we will work on portfolio features. We will implement functionality to create a portfolio, and I will explain to you how to manage forms easily. Then we will take a look at update functionality, where I will show you how to populate inputs with existing data. At the end of the section, we will work on delete functionality. All of the features will be reactive and updating view in real-time, and You will learn how to create fast static pages with new Next.js functions.
The blog feature will be the biggest one. Users will be able to create blogs using a slate editor that offers different formatting options. Each blog will be saved initially as a draft blog, and it will be a user's responsibility to publish it. For this purpose, we will create a dashboard page displaying all user blogs to publish or make a draft from the blog. All Published blogs will be highlighted on the blogs page and created as static pages assuring better performance. We will create delete and update functionality as well.
Next, we will work on SEO(search engine optimization) improvements. I will explain to you the basics of SEO and how to get it working with Next.js.
The last section will be covering deployment. Express API server will be deployed to Heroku. Next.js portfolio application will be deployed to the serverless Vercel platform, making our application super fast on the internet.
