Building a Fullstack Boilerplate in 2021

Web apps have become increasingly complex as the React ecosystem has matured. Today, it's easier than ever to integrate backend services into React applications using server-side rendering. One of the more popular frameworks for simplifying a lot of boilerplate code that goes into this approach is Next.js, which allows developers to easily choose how pages in an application should be rendered, along with a bunch of other features that reduce the need for splitting work between frontend and backend engineers.

In this post, we're going to explore the makings of a great boilerplate that will curb a lot of the time spent on this setup.
