What is Gatsby?

Gatsby JS is an open source framework that is used for the creation of highly performing websites through the React language. We can therefore consider Gatsby a real "platform" able to help us create any type of website through several very interesting features:

  • uses constantly updated and supporting technologies (React and webpack) manages data through Graphql, a query-based API service generates static files that can also be loaded onto a CDN
  • uses the JAMstack approach, the approach that therefore combines Java Script, API and markup for the development of websites (this is an effective return to static sites).
  • the sites generated are also PWAs (progressive Web App) offers fast browsing using dns-prefetch, prefetch and preload.

Using Gatsby JS to create very fast websites is very simple, it can in fact read data from any source (CMS; static files etc), analyze them and redirect them as static files that are managed by React and placed on the server. The JAM Stack language is the real added value of this platform because it allows the site to be approached in a β€œsplit” and independent rather than centralized way. As mentioned, JAM is an acronym that stands for Javascript, API, Markup where Java represents the dynamic part that runs in the client, the API the data read by Java and Markup the html files that must be created during the development of the site.

Gatsby can integrate the main plugins that those who have already had, for example, experience in Wordpress, surely know: Analytics, Seo, Utilities etc.

Gatsby is based on React so it integrates perfectly with Lyket!

Everything is explained in the React documentation and everything applies smoothly to GatsbyJS without having to make any change at all. That's the magic of developing in React :D

You can customize your Gatsby buttons in the same way you can do it for the React ones
