Progress Bar in Next.js

Progress Bar in Next.js

Display a Progress Bar on route changes in a Next.js app.

Sometimes when you transition from one route to another, it takes a little time to do so due to different factors. Behind the scenes, it may be rendering a complex page component or doing an API call. In such cases, the app looks like it has frozen for some seconds and then suddenly transitions to the next route.
