Does anyone have experience in saving a sanity fetch as global properties in next.js?

Does anyone have experience in saving a sanity fetch as global properties in next.js, which subsequently can be used for components such as a header, footer etc?
Thanks in advance

I think you should use reacts Context for this. Make a context provider and wrap your app in it. All page props then are reusable in its components. This will give you an idea:

import { AppContext } from "./useAppContext";

function MyApp({ Component, pageProps }) {
  const { myGlobalProp } = pageProps;

  return (
    <AppContext.Provider value={{ myGlobalProp }}>
      <Component {...pageProps} />

export default MyApp;

import { createContext, useContext } from "react";

export const AppContext = createContext(null);
export const useAppContext = () => useContext(AppContext);

import { useAppContext } from "./useAppContext";

export const MyComponent = () => {
  const { myGlobalProp } = useAppContext();
  return <div>{ myGlobalProp }</div>

Yes. Did the fetch in getInitialProps located in _app.js (or ts). Added the result in pageProps and then added it as context

- I know that i should insert my data fetched data into "value={{ myGlobalProp }}", so i can acces it globally - but can you tell me, if I'm supoosed to fetch the data from sanity in "useAppContext.js" or "_app.js"?
Hope , I'm not too much of a bother - thanks in advance.
