Gatsby is a modern and powerful static site generator built with React. It allows developers to build fast and optimized websites using the latest web technologies. Gatsby leverages the concept of pre-rendering, where the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are generated at build time, resulting in lightning-fast page loads and improved SEO.

With Gatsby, you can easily create dynamic and interactive websites by pulling data from various sources like CMSs, APIs, Markdown files, and databases. It provides a rich plugin ecosystem that enables you to extend its functionality and integrate with popular tools and services.

Compared to traditional server-rendered frameworks, Gatsby offers better performance, scalability, and developer experience. It also provides features like code splitting, lazy loading, and image optimization out of the box, making it an excellent choice for building modern web applications.
