Hello and welcome to my new site, powered by Jekyll.
window.location. This left me trying to figure out how to mock the
window.location so that I could pass in dummy data and ensure that the data I got back was what was expected. Here was how I managed to solve the issue.
Next.js offers a feature called Incremental Static Regeneration (ISR) that allows you to generate a static page when the page is first visited, rather than generating a static copy at build time. This is a really handy feature as it allows you to reduce your build time, but still benefit from having a cache of a page generated so future visitors will have a faster response time.
