In this article, we will build a Serverless Next.js based TODO application. We will try our best to make it minimalist. It will not have any database connection. It will not have any extra dependency other than Next.js. It will not have any buttons. Besides,
minimalism is cool and clean, I love it because I am a lazy developer :)
Why do we avoid database connections?
Next.js is a modern framework which enables the front-end developers to develop full stack applications. Serverless functions have an important role in simplifying backend development for Next.js developers. As you probably know, serverless functions do not like database connections due to their stateless nature. See here and here as examples of problems of database connections inside serverless functions.
