Fast in every way that matters
Gatsby is a free and open source framework based on React that helps developers build blazing fast websites and apps
Gatsby is a modern web framework for blazing fast websites.
Go Beyond Static Websites. Get all the benefits of static websites with none of the limitations. Gatsby sites are fully functional React apps, so you can create high-quality, dynamic web apps, from blogs to e-commerce sites to user dashboards.
Use a Modern Stack for Every Site. No matter where the data comes from, Gatsby sites are built using React and GraphQL. Build a uniform workflow for you and your team, regardless of whether the data is coming from the same backend.
Load Data From Anywhere. Gatsby pulls in data from any data source, whether it’s Markdown files, a headless CMS like Contentful or WordPress, or a REST or GraphQL API. Use source plugins to load your data, then develop using Gatsby’s uniform GraphQL interface.
Performance Is Baked In. Ace your performance audits by default. Gatsby automates code splitting, image optimization, inlining critical styles, lazy-loading, prefetching resources, and more to ensure your site is fast — no manual tuning required.
Host at Scale for Pennies. Gatsby sites don’t require servers, so you can host your entire site on a CDN for a fraction of the cost of a server-rendered site. Many Gatsby sites can be hosted entirely free on Gatsby Cloud and other similar services.
You can get a new Gatsby site up and running on your local dev environment in 5 minutes with these four steps:
Install the Gatsby CLI.
npm install -g gatsby-cli
Create a Gatsby site from a Gatsby starter.
Get your Gatsby blog set up in a single command:
Create a new Gatsby site using the interactive setup wizard Give it this name: My Gatsby site gatsby new
Start the site in
Next, move into your new site’s directory and start it up:
cd my-gatsby-site/ gatsby develop
Open the source code and start editing!
Your site is now running at
http://localhost:8000. Open the
my-gatsby-site directory in your code editor of choice and edit
src/pages/index.js. Save your changes, and the browser will update in real time!
Full documentation for Gatsby lives on the website.
For most developers, we recommend starting with our in-depth tutorial for creating a site with Gatsby. It starts with zero assumptions about your level of ability and walks through every step of the process.

One of the strengths of gatsby but the boilerplate is very cumbersome, I have used this quite a lot in freelance projects and some professional landing pages. The Results that this gatsby image provides are really good. They save so much work, to begin with, the provide each filter as an option from graphql filter, so that makes life easier, this does the tranformations too using the sharp library. One of the coolest thing it does is, it will blur the picture and lazy load it until it is available, which has been amazing. Saves to much time and work. But the huge drawback that it requires so much repetitive work, I get tired easily doing the same work again and again.
i've used this library in my gatsby project for optimizing images for better performance. This library works pretty good for me and improves my Static Site Performance. One thing about gatsby images is that it provides a lazy load on images in static sites, also your image is alway responsive to viewport. One who has worked with a static site knows that such optimization isn't possible. Thanks to the Gatsby team.
Every library has its own pros and cons, let's keep the cons aside and talk about the pros first, this is one of the best libraries for sure. It has a wide range of unlimited images. There are lots of choices, you will get. The only cons i.e it takes time to load an image in a static site. But overall it's easy to use and it's productive. You can give this a try once.
One of the perks that i really like about using gatsby is this package! The way it handles images is so darn awesome, I cant fathom how easy it makes my life when I use this package. Dynamic image loading, you got it! Caching, you got it! Placeholders? You got it. I cant think of what this package can't do tbh.
if you're using Gatsby for developing static site then you should use this amazing , easy to use , powerful library from Gatsby. i've used this library in my serval Gatsby projects and this help me a lot for optimizing my image for web. its easy to use and their documentation is clean and clear.
