Learn how to render different content based on the user agent in your Edge Middleware.

The following example shows how to render different content based on the user agent in your Edge Middleware.

Your middleware file should be placed at the root of your project. If you are using the src directory, the file should be placed in the src directory.

middleware.ts
import { NextResponse, userAgent } from 'next/server';
import type { NextRequest } from 'next/server';
 
// Set pathname were middleware will be executed
export const config = {
  matcher: '/',
};
 
export function middleware(request: NextRequest) {
  // Parse user agent
  const { device } = userAgent(request);
 
  // Check the viewport
  const viewport = device.type === 'mobile' ? 'mobile' : 'desktop';
 
  // Update the expected url
  request.nextUrl.pathname = `_viewport/${viewport}`;
 
  // Return rewritten response
  return NextResponse.rewrite(req.nextUrl);
}
