Why I Rebuilt my Blog with Gatsby
November 24, 2019
This past weekend, I decided to rebuild my Jekyll blog with Gatsby. So what was the point of this?
There's a great community around it already with thorough documentation, making it simple to get something up and running without spending hours on a webpack config.
Part of this initiative as well was to explore concepts like CSS-in-JS as part of my seemingly lifelong quest to put together the best CSS methodology. I think I'm making progress with that as well with a combination of TailwindCSS and Linaria. More on that later.
The learning curve for Gatsby isn't that big as well, because it's really just React under the hood. Gatsby just provides tools to make working with React easier. The best part about this stack is that it's not very complicated for a simple blog. That's why Gatsby seems to be the most friendly way to dive into the world of React.
