In this article, we are going to learn how we can add a calendar loader in NextJS. NextJS is a React-based framework. It has the power to Develop beautiful Web applications for different platforms like Windows, Linux, and mac.

import 'react-calendar/dist/Calendar.css';
export default function CalendarGfg() {
    const [value, onChange] = useState(new Date());
    return (
