  1. Talk about a misleading headline! This is not how to run nextjs on AWS Lambda, but how to run it on Vercel, aka the hosting platform designed for nextjs. Should probably make that clearer in the first paragraph or two.

    1. We clarify the terminology in the first subsection, but this is still a fair point. We’ve made some edits for clarity. Thanks for reading

  2. I would still use some rubust backend framework for providing APIs as they offer more features out of the box. They might become more pricey if I use php or python but I usually use some node framework integrated with nextjs so they could be deployed on the same server.

  3. For anyone having trouble with the Dynamic API routes section, here is a small snippet I wrote to make it work in place.

    (() => {
    posts.map((post, index) => post.id = index + 1);
