@thdxr just catching up with the stream from yesterday! around 39 mins you discuss next not really being suitable for the ideal stack esque setup. we use next for all our frontend projects without using SSR at all and sometimes even without next's API routes - it's great out of the box even without those main selling points, and we love the DX. letting you know that it might be worth considering the use case of using this stack with next because that's what we'll be doing!

We're considering this approach going forwards as well. Often we don't need SSR for the first phase of dev but later need it for a new feature and it becomes a pain point having to add it. May as well start with a project structure that makes it an easy add on down the line.

Hey I meant more that if people are using NextJS in a full stack way, the ideal stack doesn't offer anything that compelling since you wouldn't care about a GraphQL api
But using next for just frontend + ideal stack makes sense

@thdxr understood - thanks for clarifying that!
