Ably Launches Next.js Starter Kit on Vercel Templates Marketplace

LONDON, Feb. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ably, a Realtime Experience Platform, today announced it has launched a Next.js Starter Kit on the Vercel Templates Marketplace. The prebuilt template helps front-end developers quickly build Next.js applications that include realtime digital experiences, such as multiplayer collaboration, live chat, data synchronization, data broadcast, and notifications.

Next.js is a flexible React-based JavaScript framework created by Vercel that allows front-end developers to build fast and user-friendly web applications. With Ably’s starter kit, developers can enhance their Next.js applications by adding realtime features that users demand.

Ably provides reliable infrastructure at scale and the APIs to deliver these shared and collaborative experiences. The Ably platform enables developers at thousands of companies to easily integrate customizable realtime experiences into their applications with guaranteed performance, without managing or provisioning complex infrastructure themselves.

“The launch of our Next.js Starter Kit on the Vercel Templates Marketplace demonstrates our ongoing commitment to empowering developers,” said Matthew O’Riordan, CEO, Ably. “By providing Next.js developers with a prebuilt template, we’re making it easier for them to bring their apps to life with amazing realtime interactive and collaborative experiences while freeing them from the burden of infrastructure management.”
