Introduction to Dynamic Content

Dynamic content is a fundamental aspect of web applications. In Next.js, you can fetch data on the server and pass it as props to your components using the getServerSideProps function. This allows you to render dynamic content on each request. In this tutorial, we'll explore how to work with dynamic content in Next.js using getServerSideProps.

Using getServerSideProps

1. Create a new page in the "pages" directory, for example, dynamic.js:

// pages/dynamic.js
import React from 'react';
function DynamicPage({ dynamicData }) {
return (
<h2>Dynamic Content</h2>
export async function getServerSideProps() {
// Fetch dynamic data on the server
const dynamicData = "This data is fetched on the server-side.";
return {
props: {
export default DynamicPage;

In this example, the getServerSideProps function is used to fetch dynamic data on the server and pass it as a prop to the component. This data will be fetched and rendered on each request.

2. Access the dynamic content page by visiting /dynamic in your application. The content is fetched and displayed dynamically on the server.
