Using Gatsby to Supercharge Your Static Sites

Oct 18, 2018

Static site generators have been around for the better part of a decade, but they’ve seen a resurgence in popularity recently and for good reason. Static sites provide significant benefits - performance, security, durability, ease of deployment - to developers, content creators, and consumers alike. Not all static site generators are created equal, however. Gatsby supercharges the process and brings many unique strengths to the table, including a strong plugin ecosystem, a data fetching layer based on GraphQL, the ability to collate data from multiple data sources, and Progressive Web App functionality infused into the static sites it generates.
