Rendering React on the Edge with Flareact and Cloudflare Workers

When building a JAMStack site, you're often confronted with a decision to either render a dynamic site on the client through traditional AJAX requests — or to render a dynamic site statically on the server. Each choice comes with a tradeoff: fresh content vs better performance.

Popular solutions like Next.js exist to solve this problem with incremental static regeneration, but Next.js isn't quite supported on a platform like Cloudflare Workers. That's why I built Flareact: a edge-rendered React framework built for Cloudflare Workers. It's modeled after Next.js, and it supports edge-rendering, static caching, and incremental static regeneration — and it comes with the benefits that Cloudflare Workers already offers, like infinite scalability and 0ms cold starts.
