Building applications with Next.js is fun.
If you've ever built something with Next.js you might have been blown away by its simplicity. I certainly was.
But as you get closer to release, something becomes apparent. There are questions you're not able to answer: Who are your users? How is your application performing? What is your slowest API route? How long does server-side rendering take? How often are API errors returned? Can you roll out a feature gradually? How can you run a certain function once a day?
Now the fun stops.
Next.js is great for building applications, but there's a whole piece missing as you get closer to production. HappyKit wants to be that piece.
Your companion to run Next.js in production — with confidence.
So the fun can continue.
Hi, I'm Dominik. While working with Next.js, I realized that Next.js is enabling a paradigm shift. The frontend and the backend are moving closer together. This unlocks a completely new category of tightly integrated services.
But existing tools haven't noticed.
They still live in a world where frontend and backend are miles apart. Segregated by location of execution.
So I set out to build drastically better tools. To take advantage of these new capabilities.
The first outcome of that is HappyKit Analytics. I've since gone on to add a feature flagging service called HappyKit Flags and a way to turn your API Routes into Cron Jobs called HappyKit Tasks.
Request access below to get started as HappyKit is currently in beta. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do.
HappyKit is currently in closed beta. The first product HappyKit launched with is a dead-simple, free analytics service called HappyKit Analytics. Since then, HappyKit Tasks and HappyKit Flags were addded. Request access now as we're gradually letting users in.
