Rendering engines and JSS

Abstract

Describes the engines behind the server-side rendering of JSS apps

A rendering engine performs server-side rendering (SSR) of JSS applications by enabling the execution of the same JavaScript application you run in development within the Content Management environment running a Sitecore instance.

The Sitecore Headless Services module enables apps to use one of the following rendering engines:

If you want to configure multiple JSS applications, you can configure a rendering engine for each app using the serverSideRenderingEngine attribute in the app configuration.

Tip

If you are using SXA, you can configure a rendering engine in the settings of your Headless tenant with the help of the Server side rendering engine field.
