Curiously Chase

I ported my NextJS blog to Astro

Why I ported my NextJS blog to Astro.

Back to NextJS

And just like that, I'm back to NextJS. I liked Astro but some JavaScript libraries I liked using with NextJS didn't work in Astro.

Over the weekend I ported my NextJS blog to Astro and so far I'm happy with it.

Why I Switched

I found I had to write a lot of custom implementations for fetching and rendering my Markdown (written in Obsidian) content in NextJS.

Astro makes it easy to integrate Markdown and MDX in a way that's highly customizable by using the astro.config configuration (my astro.config).
