getNextStaticProps

The getNextStaticProps function lets you build a static site with your WordPress data. The function should be returned from getStaticProps:

export async function getStaticProps(context: GetStaticPropsContext) {
return getNextStaticProps(context, {
Page: MyPage,
client,
});
}

The getNextStaticProps function accepts two arguments: the server side props context, and an object (type GetNextStaticPropsConfig which extends the GetNextServerSidePropsConfig type) with a Page key. This should be your Next.js page component.

The reason MyPage and client are passed to getNextStaticProps is because under the hood Faust.js perform a skeleton render of the page component to know what data to fetch and what queries to build.

Context parameter​

This is the same object that Next.js provides in getStaticProps. You can read the list of parameters here.

GetNextServerSidePropsConfig parameter​

The second argument of getNextStaticProps is of type GetNextStaticPropsConfig and accepts the following parameters:

  • Page: The current page component. It can be any valid React Element.
  • client: The GQty client.
  • revalidate: The revalidate property is the amount in seconds after which a page re-generation can occur. By default, it is set to 900 seconds(15 minutes).
  • props: The props object is any other key value pairs of properties where each value is received by the Page component.

Because the GetNextStaticPropsConfig type extends GetNextServerSidePropsConfig, it can also accept any other properties of the getNextServerSideProps.

getNextServerSideProps return values​

The getNextStaticProps function returns an object that is required by the getStaticProps function.
