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.
