A NextJS Quotes application with a professional setup and a lot of testing


What is Dev Quotes? It’s a small project with a professional setup used to revisit NextJS and to try out some tools I had not tried before including CSS Modules and react-query. Everything is written in strict TypeScript, even the tests. It connects to a public API for the quotes. You can find the API here:

The reason I made this project wasn’t to build something spectacular. I wanted a small application which I could use to improve my test writing, and I wanted to see if TypeScript would be beneficial in tests or if it would get in the way. As it turns out I actually really enjoyed having TypeScript in my tests too.

  • NextJS
  • TypeScript
