Next.js, integrate React Context only in certain pages |

IT-блоги Next.js, integrate React Context only in certain pages 6 мая 2021 г.

Next.js is one of the most popular and widely used React frameworks.

Using the Context API in Next.js is very simple but there are specific cases where you may need to wrap only certain pages by the provider.

To do this, create a new next project

npx create-next-app my-app

We are going to create a context that will increment and decrement a number.

Create a new folder components and inside create a new file named context.js then paste this code

import { createContext, useContext, useState, useCallback } from "react";

const Context = createContext({});

export const CountProvider = ({ children }) => {
  const [count, setCount] = useState(0);

  const increment = useCallback(() => {
    setCount((prevState) => prevState + 1);
  }, [count]);

  const decrement = useCallback(() => {
    setCount((prevState) => prevState - 1);
  }, [count]);

  return (
    <Context.Provider value={{ count, increment, decrement }}>

export function useCount() {
  return useContext(Context);

the custom hook useCount() will allow us to use the values passed to the context provider.

In the _app.js file, add this new component

const Noop = ({ children }) => <>{children}</>;

Then in MyApp component which is exported by default, we will add a prop named provider which will be accessible in all pages and its value will be <Noop/>if no context provider is passed as a value.

Now the _app.js file will be like this

import "../styles/globals.css";

const Noop = ({ children }) => <>{children}</>;

function MyApp({ Component, pageProps }) {
  const ContextProvider = Component.provider || Noop;
  return (
      <Component {...pageProps} />

export default MyApp;

We will consume the provider in the home page like this

import styles from "../styles/Home.module.css";
import { CountProvider, useCount } from "../components/context";

export default function Home() {
  const { increment, count, decrement } = useCount();
  return (
    <div className={styles.container}>
      <button onClick={increment}>Increment</button>
      <button onClick={decrement}>Decrement</button>

If you try it in the browser, you won't be able to increment or decrement a number because we don't have the provider as a prop in the page.

To make it work, add

Home.provider = CountProvider;

After reloading the page, you can increment and decrement the number.
