Full Example

Here is a detailed example of an open-next.config.ts file: This file need to be at the same place as your next.config.js file

server in here could refer to a lambda function, a docker container, a node server or whatever that can support running nodejs code. (Even cloudflare workers in the future)

For more information about the options here, take a look at the components section.
