re: Before building your next static site with React, consider this VIEW POST


If you use React or something like Gatsby to build a static website, then I'm sorry, but you are fucking moron.
I was really disappointed when I saw countless of "developers" with years of experience use Gatsby to build a one-page resume website and not even ask themselves if that's efficient. Coders, at best, neither developers nor programmers.


Ohhh I wouldn't say that! I agree that Gatsby can be a bit heavy-handed for certain projects, but it strikes a neat balance between stateful clientside logic and static rendering. For that reason, I think it's basically a replacement for create-react-app for full-scale projects. It's also great for running your API calls ahead-of-time so you don't ship API keys to the client.
