    Pros: 

    Super performant; active & growing community; abstracts away much of the headache of bootstrapping a modern web app with sensible defaults.

    Cons: 

    Documentation was a bit lacking for a while, but that's significantly improved since the 1.0 release.

    Love using Gatsby — I'm excited to see where it goes as the community grows.

Hey everyone! We recently just launched the 1.0 version of Gatsby which we're really excited about! Our announcement blog post is at https://www.gatsbyjs.org/blog/ga... >Gatsby is your friendly, blazing fast static site generator for React. And after nearly a year of research, prototyping, and testing, Gatsby v1 is ready for action. >Static site generators offer many benefits over traditional dynamic website frameworks — better performance, higher security, lower cost of scaling, and a better developer experience. >In v1, Gatsby blazes new ground for static site generators by enabling rich integrations with CMSs like Contentful, Wordpress, and Drupal, and a suite of features, on by default, that make your sites startlingly fast — route-based code splitting, service workers, offline support, and more. >Gatsby means no more compromising between developers, designers, and authors.

Creating fast sites is hard. One trick though is to render them statically. Unofrtionatly then you loose the opportunity to load only data when most of the boilerplate is already loaded. Gatsby combines both out of the box. It's a fantastic piece of software engineering!

@kylemathews Congratulations on the launch Kyle! On my fourth production Gatsby site now and have enjoyed the ride so much so far. Not only is Kyle one of the most helpful and responsive creators on Github but Gatsby has literally changed my life and was the catalyst for switching to React. Props to everyone involved in the landing page too and @sachagreif for the great logo 💯 So pleased to see this on PH.

@suparchie how do you deploy instantly without having to run manually, say for instance a site that uses an API? Doesn't this build an extra layer that will slow the site? Take for example I have a Wordpress API that I plan to run with Gatsby frontend
