  • Next, open up your package.json and replace your script section with this: – Run the npm run dev command, you should get an error like : – next Couldn’t find a `pages` directory.
  • Please create one under the project rootThis is because Next uses the pages directory and the files in them to map its routes.
  • Look at this route below, This helps us to achieve clean URLs as discussed in the paragraph above: – By default, it’s easy to use query strings in Next, but as usual, you want to keep your URLs clean, so you opt for something like: /p/2 rather than /p?id=2.
