Hello, I'm trying to build an auction app with solidity and React but I need some server to handle data and internal logic and I don't know what tool to use for the backend for these reasons:

  1. when just using react and solidity it's not fast.
  2. when using Django and web3py, I can't transfer money with Metamask.

I've heard about Next.js and Node.js as the backend but I cant decide. I would appreciate any help.

Hi everyone, I am building a React website with Next.js, and I am trying to connect the contact form with the backend in order to receive the entered value into my emails, Do you have any advice on which email service or back-end service should I use, preferably open source or with free version usage?

Actual experimentation: I tried to connect my form with Nodemailer package, basically it's working locally but in production on Vercel's server isn't working, it doesn't allow me to receive the data to my email( Gmail) as I am receiving it in localHost, and also email.js as far as I tried isn't a good match for my contact form since it can’t send all the data, only the message value; I would really appreciate if I can get any advice or suggestions; Thanks and kind regards!
