Gatsby – free and open source framework based on React

Gatsby is a React-based open source framework for creating websites and apps. It allows you to build websites really quickly, these websites also run very fast, because Gatsby will generate a static page. It handles dynamic data. Gatsby sites are fully functional React apps so you can create high-quality, dynamic web apps, from blogs to e-commerce sites to user dashboards.

GatsbyJS was born in May 2015 as a simple way to build a website with React.

Gatsby pulls in data from any data source, whether it’s Markdown files, a headless CMS like Contentful or WordPress, or a REST or GraphQL API. Use source plugins to load your data, then develop using Gatsby’s uniform GraphQL interface. Build anything you can imagine with over 2,000 plugins and performance, scalability, and security built-in by default.

Gatsby automates code splitting, image optimization, inlining critical styles, lazy-loading, prefetching resources, and more to ensure your site is quick.
