Fast to Run

Gatsby sites are fast by design

Gatsby loads only critical1 parts of the page, so your site loads as fast as possible. Once loaded, Gatsby prefetches2 resources for other pages so that clicking on the site feels incredibly fast. Gatsby lets teams focus on creating content-driven websites instead of worrying about performance.

Fast to Deploy

Gatsby sites build fastno matter where they’re deployed.

Gatsby ships with a sophisticated caching and dependency tracking system we’ve spent years perfecting. Gatsby intelligently avoids re-executing redundant parts of the build so that sites build and deploy, on average, 2.5x faster than other static frameworks.

For even faster builds and deploys, we built Gatsby Cloud, custom-built cloud infrastructure for taking your Gatsby site to its fullest potential.

See how it works

Hard things, made easy

Performance, security, accessibility, and access to the tools and workflows you prefer should be the default for how the web is built, not afterthoughts.

Performance built-in

Gatsby automates code splitting, image optimization, inlining critical styles, lazy-loading, prefetching resources, and more to ensure your site is fully optimized. No manual tuning required.

Scalability — affordable and instant

Gatsby sites don't require complex scaling operations or expensive hosting. They scale when needed, but when traffic drops so does your usage — and your costs. Host at scale for pennies.

Security by default

Gatsby’s serverless rendering generates static HTML at build time. No server and no reachable database equals no malicious requests, DDOS attacks, or accidental exposure. A Gatsby site’s attack surface is nonexistent.

Accessibility by design

Recognized by WebAIM as the most accessible web framework, we build in best practices like accessible routing, progressive page enhancement and a built-in linting tool to find accessibility errors. Help make the web work for everyone.

What Gatsby Users are saying

  • I'm blown away by how fast Gatsby is for the user.

  • Gatsby is a really important differentiator for us. As a small boutique agency, having Gatsby is like having a secret weapon.

  • We needed our site to be blazing fast, scalable, have top notch SEO and, most importantly, allow content creators who are not developers to easily publish new pages. Gatsby did not disappoint: Six months after implementing Gatsby we have increased our organic blog traffic by 973% - and expect that number to keep increasing!

  • Traffic spiked immediately when our Super Bowl ad aired and we just didn’t have to worry...Because we built with Gatsby, we knew we had the performance to handle the traffic without even thinking about it.

  • With Gatsby we immediately saw a 2x boost in site performance with a 10x increase in page load speeds. As a result, we’ve definitely seen a decrease in the bounce rate and an increase in our conversion rate.

Explore the Gatsby Ecosystem

More than just a static site generator, Gatsby has all the tools for building the modern web: Plugins for seamlessly integrating services, Themes for effortless configuration, and Recipes for automating common site building chores.

Plugins are packages that extend Gatsby sites. They can source content, transform data, and more. Anything you can imagine — from CMSs to e-commerce — has a Gatsby plugin for seamless integration of services.Browse Plugins

Themes wrap all of your default configuration into a single package, installed as a dependency so your site’s functionality can be versioned and centrally managed for easy updating. Compose themes together, and even swap out one compatible theme for another.Browse Themes

Recipes automate common site building tasks, like creating pages and layouts or installing and setting up plugins. Gatsby comes with some useful default Recipes built in, with many more to choose from -- and it’s easy to create your own custom Recipes.Browse Recipes
