Authentication Recommendation for Next.JS

I'm planning out my next app. Does anybody have recommendations on handling authentication with Next.JS? I was thinking of doing JWT with a back-end API in Node or Python. I know you could also can handle it with Auth0 or Firebase, or something equivalent. Any past experience or feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    +1 for Firebase authentication.

    From my experience, integrating Auth0 with Next.js is quite easy, so that's what I would recommend.

      Thanks for the recommendation!

    I would highly recommend trying out Firebase Authentication. It's really easy to get started with, has a very generous free tier, and integrates with basically any third-party provider you might want.

      Thanks for the recommendation! I think I will go with Firebase!
