  1. Thank you for the article.
    Would this mean that using Middleware in Next.js disables the static page generation and as a consequence every page becomes server side rendered?

  2. No, the middleware doesn’t disable the static pages but works with it by modifying or manipulating the pages by sending responses depending on the req(cookies,headers,geolocation) parameters.

  3. Thanks but is hardcoding a username and password a valid production case? I would expect in a real world to have the users and password stored in a database, which is not at the edge, limiting then the authentication use case. I’m struggling to understand this use case. Do people really do that?
