I'm looking to create an app with PocketBase, but their own SSR guide (https://github.com/pocketbase/js-sdk?tab=readme-ov-file#ssr-integration) seems to be outdated, as it says that Next.js doesn't support middleware. What's the correct way to use PocketBase with Next?

const middleware = async (req) => {
  const cookie = req.cookies.get(constants.AUTH_COOKIE_NAME)?.value;
  const pb = getPocketBase(cookie);

  if (cookie) {
    const res = NextResponse.next();
    pb.authStore.onChange(() => {
      res.headers.append(
        "Set-Cookie",
        `${constants.AUTH_COOKIE_NAME}=${pb.authStore.exportToCookie()}`
      );
    });
    try {
      await pb.collection("users").authRefresh();
    } catch (e) {
      const res = NextResponse.redirect(new URL("/login", req.url));
      pb.authStore.clear();
      res.cookies.delete(constants.AUTH_COOKIE_NAME);
      return res;
    }
    return res;
  }
}
