Gatsby JS & Prismic: Build RAPID Gatsby sites | Gatsby 2021

Do you want to improve your React JS skills and increase your value as a front-end developer?

– “Gatsby lets you create super-fast sites with your data, whatever the source. Free your sites from old CMSs and fly into the future.”

In this lesson, we’ll be building a Gatsby site from a Prismic CMS data source!

Improve your React skills 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 configuring Prismic as a headless CMS while using GatsbyJS to generate a lightning-fast server-rendered React website from Prismic data, such as pages, menus, media (and more! ) By using GraphQL to query this data.

We’ll create a landing page website in this course, look at the initial setup and development of Gatsby JS and Prismic locally, build React components in Gatsby based on Prismic data, and query the Prismic data with GraphQL to automatically generate our static pages.

No landing page is complete without a contact form, so we will be creating a dynamic contact page in Gatsby where we can update our form fields in Prismic and use Netlify forms to capture the email address of our user and various other details.

We will see how we can query Prismic data with GraphQL using GraphiQL navigation tool. Once we’re familiar and comfortable developing with GatsbyJS and Prismic, we’ll move on to setting up and deploying a live website using Netlify which rebuilds our static webpages every time we put update the content of our Prismic backend.

Basic knowledge of React is recommended. We’ll cover everything else in Gatsby.js, Prismic, GraphQL, and styled components!

Beat the competition with Gatsby!

Gatsby.js makes the fastest website possible. Instead of waiting to generate pages on demand, Gatsby pre-builds the pages and elevates them in a global cloud of servers (we’ll be using Netlify for that) – ready to be instantly delivered to your users wherever they are.

Some benefits of using Gatsby include:

No waiting for API responses

No waiting to return the components according to the requested data

No load 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 instantly serve your users!
