Product News

This section covers recent news or announcements from the product team. Read on to learn the latest news from the world of Azure Static Web Apps!

  • Oct 03 | Universal Rendering with Nuxt 3 and Azure Static Web Apps. Previously, you were able to deploy a static rendered Nuxt app on Azure Static Web Apps, where the entire app is pre-generated as static content. However, Nuxt 3 also supports universal rendering, which provides the performance and search engine optimization of server-side rendering while still enabling client-side interactivity. Get Started with this tutorial.

    It's here - Azure Static Web Apps has preview support for Hybrid Next.js apps, making zero-config deployments with Next.js even easier with support for Server-Side Rendering, Incremental Static Regeneration (SSR and ISR respectively), API Routes, advanced image compression, and Next.js Auth.

Timeless DEV post...

How to write a kickass README

Arguably the single most important piece of documentation for any open source project is the README. A good README not only informs people what the project does and who it is for but also how they use and contribute to it.

If you write a README without sufficient explanation of what your project does or how people can use it then it pretty much defeats the purpose of being open source as other developers are less likely to engage with or contribute towards it.
