Next.js and Astra DB Starter

10 minutes, Beginner, Start Building

A sample Next.js + DataStax Astra DB starter app that integrates Astra DB into a Next.js API.


Quick Start


  • Provide a Next.js starter using Astra DB as the storage backend

How this works

Once the Astra DB credentials are provided, the Next.js endpoint will fetch your Astra DB keyspaces. The webservice will be available on port 3000 once the application has been deployed. Once the application is running, you can begin to make changes to your app by editing pages/index.js.

Next.js is an open-source JavaScript framework that lets you build server-side rendering and static web applications using React. It is not nescessary to configuration of webpack or similar to start using Next.js, as it comes with its configuration. This make it very simple to start a project, as we only need to execute simple commands and the project is ready.

Vercel is a cloud platform for static sites and Serverless Functions, it enables developers to host Jamstack websites and web services that deploy instantly. You also have the option to deloy this app in Vercel.
