Building a production ready website with GatsbyJS & Prismic.io

Building a production ready website with GatsbyJS & Prismic.io

GatsbyJS is one of my favourite open source frameworks for building static websites. Being able to take advantage of their plugin ecosystem to build rapid websites whilst using some of the latest tools such as GraphQL makes the experience both fun and simple. Prismic is a headless CMS with a powerful API which takes away the pain of managing rich content such as images, headings, lists etc which feature regularly in web content.
