Sure I followed the official documentation. My problems started essentially right with import statements and continued to all things possible like bundle splitting. You can read more details on my blog.

Overall, I found that Gatsby is super overkill for just having a blog. Just install parcel-bundler and parcel-plugin-codegen and you can set up a blog in no time with smaller and faster sites as a result.

One of the things that is a mess with Gatsby is that everything must be a plugin. Want to use leaflet? Well, you'll need a plugin. Why can't I just use react-leaflet?!

But enough of the rant :). Loved the article structure and tech composition, even though some comparison (e.g., emotion vs styled components) would have been good. ❤️
