What is Gatsby JS?

GatsbyJS is a React-based, GraphQL powered static site generator. It uses powerful preconfiguration to build a website that uses only static files for incredibly fast page loads, service workers, code splitting, server-side rendering, intelligent image loading, asset optimization, and data prefetching.
