Next.js gives you the best developer experience with all the features you need for production: hybrid static & server rendering, TypeScript support, smart bundling, route pre-fetching, and more. No config needed.
Next.js come up with built-in image component and automatic image optimizaion. Automatic Image Optimization resize, optimize and server image in modern WebP instad of shipping large image to devices with small view port. Instead of optimizing images at build time, it optimize image on-demand as per user request. NextJS optimize image size upto 80%.

No more need to wait to load dynamic content, as static content can also be a dynamic. Incremental Static Regeneration allow you to update exisitng pages by re-rendering them in background as traffic comes in.
Next.js provide an integrated TypeScript support, as simply creating tsconfig.json file. You can simply convert files from .js to .tsx and get support of TypeScript. You can use Next.js API as simply in Typescript like GetStaticProps, GetStaticPaths, GetServerSideProps types respectively.

Now, Build your api with Next.js, simply put your api under 'pages/api' is mapped to '/api/*' and will be treated as an API endpoint instead of a 'page'. You can use GET, POST many more.
