How PortalJS works?

PortalJS is built in JavaScript and React on top of the popular Next.js framework, assuming a "decoupled" approach where the frontend is a separate service from the backend and interacts with backend(s) via an API. It can be used with any backend and has out of the box support for CKAN.
