Gatsby Cloud with Contentful CMS
Let's look at how Gatsby cloud helps you set up a fully functional blog with Contentful and how we can add features of our own.
A lot of processes go into creating a well performant and accessible web application, mostly because of the more features we want to add, the more we would require using modern technologies.
Gatsby comes as a solution to that problem by bringing together all the best ways to build for the web while being endlessly customisable and extensible for any purpose. By so doing it is becoming the modern way to build the web by empowering people to bring their favourite tools and workflows into the web development experience seamless and with no cost for performance.
In this course we will see how Gatsby Cloud, which is a build tool for Gatsby sites, can help us create fully scalable web applications in 4 steps, we will also be looking at a feature of Gatsby Cloud — Incremental Builds which reduces your build time and enables scalability in your Gatsby Web applications.
Parts of this course introduces us to how to set up content types in a Contentful CMS and create relationships between them, and it goes further to show how API keys can be created and added to a Gatsby site. In the second part of this course, we will take the established boilerplate a step further by adding a Theme toggler and add dark mode to the site.
