Proven experience in delivering engaging front end experiences using React


Gatsby.js is an open-source framework with performance, scalability, and security built-in. A React-based framework that provides a modern front-end framework to enable development teams to create super-fast websites and web apps. In simple terms it is a static site generator that leverages React. This enables our Gatsby web development team to build websites that only use static files to deliver super-fast page loads. Gatsby enables us to collect data from any source, platform, third party APIs and content management systems, its capability to retrieve data from anywhere is impressive!

What is Gatsby – and why choose it for web development?

The simplest way to describe Gatsby js is to start from what it enables us to do:

  • it enables development teams to create web apps and websites using React whilst working with any data source (CMS, API etc.) - this means we can connect to existing systems that may already be in use
  • once it builds Gatsby pulls the data from multiple sources and renders static files that are highly optimised by Gatsby for performance
  • performance is achieved by Gatsby only loading critical HTML, CSS and JavaScript to deliver a site that can load super-fast
  • once the site is loaded Gatsby prefetches resources for pages as required to ensure clicking through a site feels incredibly speed

What is Gatsby JS used for?

Gatsby js is used to build super-fast websites and apps, it enables developers to bring in data from anywhere, including content management systems, API’s, databases, files and document repositories. It is geared for integrations, mobile and easy deployment with its static files. The React based framework and its rich data layer makes integrating different content, APIs and services into one engaging web experience extremely simple.

You Can use Gatsby for:

1: Building fast static websites and apps where the speed of serving content online is critical for customer experience and to support SEO goals, improve lighthouse scores and conversions

2: Creating rich web experiences that can combine data from anywhere – if you’re using other platforms to support your business operations these can be easily integrated

Gatsby, Next and React

Gatsby is built on React, it is a powerful framework for quickly building rich and engaging UIs (user interfaces).

React is a comprehensive and popular framework for developing web apps, it provides powerful tools that enables our development team to build rich UIs (User Interfaces) quickly. It is free and open-source front-end JavaScript library used for building user interfaces based on UI components.

Gatsby provides the static capability and React provides the core functionality, Gatsby brings together key tools like React, GraphQL and others into a single framework for building websites.

Next. JS & Gatsby

Next.js and Gatsby are both React-based frontend frameworks, an application built with Gatsby or Next is still a React application. Both frameworks offer front-end enhancements for rich user experiences however there are two key differences between them – the way in which they fetch and handle data, and the requirement of a server.

Next.js is often used for large dynamic enterprise sites/apps that require significant flexibility to scale, with its support for server-side rendering, it is the ideal framework to support apps with content that undergoes frequent changes throughout the day. Therefore, consider Gatsby to be better suited for small to medium sized applications with less frequent content changes.

Key considerations to help with the decision on which framework should be used:

1: Will the site undergo frequent changes within the day such as an Ecommerce store that also involves multiple interactions?

If the answer is yes: A Gatsby static site generator would not be the recommended framework, you would consider having a React front end with .net core API

2: Will the app remain under 100k pages with small amounts of data?

If the answer is yes: Gatsby is the best option here for a smaller site with small amounts of data to deliver an incredibly fast static site.

In summary Gatsby is the perfect fit for creating static websites with infrequent content changes, Next.js although used for its server-side rendering at I‑Finity we would recommend an architecture built on React supported with a .net core API.
