Do you want to improve your React JS skills and increase your value as a front-end developer? 💵
- "Gatsby lets you build blazing fast sites with your data, whatever the source. Liberate your sites from legacy CMSs and fly into the future."
In this course we'll be building a HYBRID dynamic + static Gatsby e-commerce site using Shopify to manage our product data and orders!
Level-up your React skillset by learning Gatsby.js with a Shopify backend! Gatsby JS uses React JS and GraphQL to generate and build static pages from a given dataset. This course will look at setting up Shopify to manage our products and customer orders, while using GatsbyJS to generate a blazing-fast server-rendered React website from Shopify data.
We'll be creating a fully functioning e-commerce website in this course, looking at initial setup and development of Gatsby JS and Shopify locally, creating React components in Gatsby based on Shopify product and collection data, and querying Shopify data with GraphQL to automatically generate our static pages.
We'll also be creating a dynamic cart and inventory check to make sure products are available in real-time.
We'll look at how we can query Shopify data with GraphQL using the GraphiQL browser tool. Once we're familiar and comfortable developing with GatsbyJS and Shopify, we'll progress onto setting up and deploying a live website using Netlify that re-builds our static web pages every time we update content in our Shopify backend.
It's recommended you have rudimentary knowledge of React. We'll be covering everything else from Gatsby.js, Shopify, GraphQL, and styled-components!
Speed past the competition with Gatsby!
Gatsby.js builds the fastest possible website. Instead of waiting to generate pages when requested, Gatsby pre-builds pages and lifts them into a global cloud of servers (we'll be using Netlify for this) - ready to be delivered instantly to your users wherever they are.
Some advantages of using Gatsby include:
- No waiting for API responses
- No waiting to render components based on requested data
- No loading spinners!
- No waiting for a server to compile a page to serve to the browser - these pages are already pre-compiled with Gatsby and ready to serve instantly to your users!
We certainly cover a lot in this Gatsby course!
