Next Page Transitions

Simply put, it makes it easy to add page transitions to apps build with Next.js. It may work with other frameworks, but it was designed around the new App component and the way that Next.js handles pages. Specifically, it solves the problem of making sure only one page component is mounted at a time and that the next page isn’t mounted until the previous one has completed its exit animation. It also has built-in support for showing a loading indicator if your page component has to load data before it can be shown.
