On this episode we’re joined by Jason Lengstorf to talk about the amaz­ing Gats­by, a tool to help you build blaz­ing­ly fast sta­t­i­cal­ly gen­er­at­ed web­sites. As a bonus, we’re joined by Mark Huot of CraftQL plu­g­in fame to dis­cuss how Gats­by’s con­tent aggre­ga­tor mod­el mar­ries with GraphQL in bliss­ful fashion.

We dis­cuss exact­ly what Gats­by is, where it fits into the ecosys­tem of sta­t­ic site gen­er­a­tors, web­site opti­miz­ers, and tools like Nuxt.js and Next.js. We probe Jason on how Gats­by could be a tool to adopt as a free­lancer or agency to help you build per­for­mant sites quicker.

We also dis­cuss what’s new in Gats­by 2.0, and how the new fea­tures such as GraphQL schema stitch­ing allow it to inte­grate with Craft CMS and oth­er con­tent man­age­ment systems.
