Generate a live URL in seconds. No build step required.
With new technology like ES Modules, ServiceWorkers, and WebAssembly.
Collaborate with non-developers faster than ever before.
All you need is a web browser. No downloads or extensions needed.
All code runs inside the browser, not on virtual machines or your device.
Because it runs entirely within the browser, server responses have less latency than localhost.
Yes! Next.js Live will work for any Next.js application, regardless of where you host it. The only requirement is a Vercel account, enabling collaboration with others on your Vercel Team.
The Next.js Live development server engine, reimagined to run entirely in the browser, will be completely open-source when made generally available.
Collaboration features such as authentication, comments, cursors, drawing, and global code syncronization require a platform such as Vercel.
Next.js Live puts the entire development process inside the web browser, which opens up some great possibilities, like collaborating and sharing instantaneously with a URL (without a build step).
By leveraging cutting-edge technologies like Service Workers, WebAssembly, ES Modules, Sucrase, and Tailwind JIT, everything that's possible when you run Next.js on your machine is now also possible in the context of remote collaboration. We didn't do this just because it's possible; we did it because it's actually faster.
The multiplayer collaboration in Next.js Live is built on top of Replicache. Cursors, chat, and even code edits are written into Replicache locally for instant updates and synced in the background to the cloud and collaborators.
