Migrating to Gatsby

May 9th, 2019

I decided since the content on my website doesn't often change that much it might be a good idea to migrate to a static site generator. At first I considered Hugo, but after experimenting a bit settled on Gatsby for the flexibility and already having familiarity with JavaScript.

Prior to moving everything over, I watched a great tutorial from freeCodeCamp on the basics of Gatsby to make sure I didn't make any rookie mistakes when getting everything setup. I highly recommend the tutorial if you have an interest in trying Gatsby out yourself and aren't sure where to start.

All in all I'm pretty happy with Gatsby and how quickly my site loads, plus you can't beat free hosting with services like Firebase and Netlify!
