Strapi is powered by a modern technology stack using Node.js – it's fast. Really fast. Plus, it can deliver your content with GraphQL.
Gatsby automates code splitting, image optimization, inlining critical styles, lazy-loading, and prefetching resources, and more to ensure your site is fast.
Being a static site generator brings a lot of advantages: Performance, Security, lower cost of scaling but also an excellent developer experience.
Gatsby brings enormous benefits to content creators and developers by helping to solve many of the challenges with the headless approach.
I had zero Gatsby knowledge - within a day of reading their docs, I seamlessly integrated it with Strapi using the gatsby-source-strapi plugin. After providing my Strapi API URL and registering content-types, I was able to make an awesome personal website within a few days of work.
The future of open-source content management is now.
