Building a Serverless JAMStack Todo app with Netlify, Gatsby, GraphQL, and FaunaDB


This application serves as an introduction to building products with a JAMStack and Serverless approach. We cover everything from the beginning:

  • starting with the Gatsby client
  • handling authentication with Netlify Identity
  • Shipping a GraphQL server on Netlify Functions
  • Building in access control with a serverless capable database

It uses tools that remove as many of the barriers as possible while also allowing upgrading in the future. Netlify Functions can grow into AWS Lambda, Netlify Identity can grow into Auth0 or Cognito, and FaunaDB can grow into DynamoDB.
