Do you want to improve your React JS skills and increase your value as a front-end developer?
- "Gatsby lets you build blazing fast sites with your data, whatever the source. Liberate your sites from legacy CMSs and fly into the future."
In this course we'll be building a Gatsby site from a Prismic CMS data source!
Level-up your React skillset by learning Gatsby.js with a Prismic CMS backend! Gatsby JS uses React JS and GraphQL to generate and build static pages from a given dataset. This course will look at setting up Prismic as a headless CMS while using GatsbyJS to generate a blazing-fast server-rendered React website from Prismic data, such as pages, menus, media, (and more!) using GraphQL to query that data.
We'll be creating a landing page website in this course, looking at initial setup and development of Gatsby JS and Prismic locally, creating React components in Gatsby based on Prismic data, and querying Prismic data with GraphQL to automatically generate our static pages.
No landing page is complete without a contact form so we'll be creating a dynamic contact page in Gatsby where we can update our form fields within Prismic and use Netlify forms to capture our user's email address and various other details.
We'll look at how we can query Prismic data with GraphQL using the GraphiQL browser tool. Once we're familiar and comfortable developing with GatsbyJS and Prismic, we'll progress onto setting up and deploying a live website using Netlify that re-builds our static web pages every time we update content in our Prismic backend.
It's recommended you have rudimentary knowledge of React. We'll be covering everything else from Gatsby.js, Prismic, GraphQL, and styled-components!
Speed past the competition with Gatsby!
Gatsby.js builds the fastest possible website. Instead of waiting to generate pages when requested, Gatsby pre-builds pages and lifts them into a global cloud of servers (we'll be using Netlify for this) - ready to be delivered instantly to your users wherever they are.
Some advantages of using Gatsby include:
No waiting for API responses
No waiting to render components based on requested data
No loading spinners!
No waiting for a server to compile a page to serve to the browser - these pages are already pre-compiled with Gatsby and ready to serve instantly to your users!
We certainly cover a lot in this Gatsby course!
