Create-React-App is a great tool for getting started with React, but at some point you may find yourself needing something more.

Gatsby is one of the most popular choices to move on to. It boasts a number of performance optimizations and a large plugin ecosystem (while still allowing you to use anything from the React ecosystem as well).

In this course, Khaled Garbaya will help you get started with Gatsby.

You'll start by building a single page "Hello World" before moving on to programmatically creating new pages and setting up static and dynamic routing.

Once you've got a grasp on the basics, Khaled will share his process for migrating an existing application built with Create-React-App project over to the Gatsby way of doing things.

You'll also get practice adding and configuring Gatsby build plugins for Tailwind CSS and sourcing data from external APIs.

After this course, you'll be ready to port existing code, or start a new Gatsby project from scratch!

What you'll learn:

  • Starting a Gatsby Project from scratch
  • Programmatic page creation
  • Static and Dynamic routing
  • Building with page templates
  • Passing data via pageContext
  • Handling protected routes with mock authentication
  • Adding & configuring Gatsby plugins
  • React's useState and useEffect hooks
