API returning 404

I am testing the API feature in next js and it keeps giving me a 404 error. My files are in the following dir: app/pages/api/hello.js The following url: http://localhost:3000/api/hello here is the code in my hello.js file: export default function handler(req, res) { res.status(200).json({ text: 'Hello' }) }
Thanks in advance!

Hi @.discomelon. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Your API route and code seem to be correctly set up. The hello.js file in the pages/api directory should be accessible via <http://localhost:3000/api/hello.> Here are a few things you can check: 1. Make sure your Next.js server is running. You can start it with npm run dev or yarn dev in your project directory. 2. Check if there are any errors in the console where your server is running. 3. Make sure you're sending a GET request to the API endpoint. The default exported function in your hello.js file handles all types of HTTP requests. 4. If you're using a tool like Postman to test the API, make sure you've selected the correct HTTP method and entered the correct URL. 5. If you're testing the API in the browser, try hard refreshing the page (Ctrl + F5 or Cmd + Shift + R). If you're still having issues, you might want to check the Next.js documentation on API routes (https://nextjs.org/docs/api-routes/introduction) for more information. Also, if you're using Refine with Next.js and want to handle 404 errors, you can create a 404.tsx file in your /pages directory. This will be used as the 404 page. For more information, you can check the Refine documentation on handling 404s (https://refine.dev/docs/router-integrations/next-js#handling-404s). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, when using the routerProvider from @refinedev/nextjs-router/app in Refine, you can arrange your file structure in a different way. You can define your pages in the app directory and set up the router bindings for Refine. For example, you can create routes for your resources like this: - app/posts/page.tsx - List page for posts - app/posts/show/[id]/page.tsx - Detail page for posts - app/categories/page.tsx - List page for categories - app/categories/show/[id]/page.tsx - Detail page for categories And you can create a route for the index and use it to redirect to the posts resource: - app/page.tsx - Index page Here is an example of how you can initialize the Refine app in the app/layout.tsx file:
"use client";

import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import dataProvider from "@refinedev/simple-rest";
import routerProvider from "@refinedev/nextjs-router/app";

import { Layout } from "components/Layout";

export default function RootLayout({ children }: { children: React.ReactNode }) {
return (
<html lang="en">
<body>
<Refine
dataProvider={dataProvider("<https://api.fake-rest.refine.dev">)}
routerProvider={routerProvider}
resources={[
{
name: "posts",
list: "/posts",
show: "/posts/show/:id",
},
{
name: "categories",
list: "/categories",
show: "/categories/show/:id",
},
]}
>
<Layout>{children}</Layout>
</Refine>
</body>
</html>
);
}
"use client";

import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import dataProvider from "@refinedev/simple-rest";
import routerProvider from "@refinedev/nextjs-router/app";

import { Layout } from "components/Layout";

export default function RootLayout({ children }: { children: React.ReactNode }) {
return (
<html lang="en">
<body>
<Refine
dataProvider={dataProvider("<https://api.fake-rest.refine.dev">)}
routerProvider={routerProvider}
resources={[
{
name: "posts",
list: "/posts",
show: "/posts/show/:id",
},
{
name: "categories",
list: "/categories",
show: "/categories/show/:id",
},
]}
>
<Layout>{children}</Layout>
</Refine>
</body>
</html>
);
}
This structure allows you to define the action routes for your resources in the resources array and define your pages in the app directory. For more information, you can check the Refine documentation on Next.js router integration (https://refine.dev/docs/router-integrations/next-js#app-directory). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
