SSR is priority number one for v2. In the meantime, a number of users use Next.js as a client that talks GraphQL to the Redwood backend. It works very well!

Very well-written RFC on a very complex issue. I took the time to go through the changes from the initial write-up to today’s version: it’s impressive how little were made (or how good was the initial RFC)
