Why Use the Next.js Drupal Starter?

The next-drupal-starter is designed as a starting point for a Next.js site that consumes data from a Drupal backend configured with the pantheon_decoupled module installed.

The starter has a dependency on the @pantheon-systems/drupal-kit. The starter kit includes helpers that maximize available Drupal backend features.
