Do you want to increase your value as a front-end / React JS / Gatsby developer?
Then this Gatsby JS & Firestore with React Hooks Free is for you!
Level-up your React skillset by learning the Gatsby.js framework with Firebase – this is an awesome HYBRID stack, where we can generate static pages in Gatsby JS from data stored in firestore, but also allow dynamic and realtime functionality such as login / registration, and realtime chat & comments
We’ll be creating the “Gatsby book club” – and we’ll look at how we can query firestore data in Gatsby with GraphQL using the GraphiQL browser tool.
We’ll be setting up Gatsby to build static sites based on data stored in firestore and firebase cloud storage ☁️ based on GraphQL queries. We’ll use the realtime capabilities of firestore to implement a realtime chat / comments section for each book, and we’ll be using the firebase authentication service to provide real-time registration and login functionality to our Gatsby app.
No app is complete without an admin section, so we’ll be implementing an admin section in our Gatsby app that allows admins to create new authors and new books, as well as implementing a file upload feature using firebase cloud functions with firebase cloud storage.
Once we’ve finished our Gatsby app, we’ll take a look at how to deploy a live version of our Gatsby site using Netlify, and implement an auto-rebuild of our Gatsby site any time we add new books.
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 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 by Gatsby and ready to serve instantly to your users!
We certainly cover a LOT in this Gatsby Free!
What other students are saying about the Gatsby & Firebase Free:
5/5 stars: “Great job for creating this Gatsby.js Free. Highly recommended for intermediate React.js developers.” – Siegfred Balona
5/5 stars: “This is a very good Free for developers who are already familiar with React. It took me 4 days to complete the Free. It covers many practical parts of Gatsby that can immediately be applied to real-world projects. I will definitely take more courses from Tom.” – Ye Joo Park
5/5 stars: “The lecturer speaks in a clear and concise manner, the build up of the Free is also good. I recommend that you learn about the essentials about Gatsby on beforehand as there are a lot of semi-advanced Gatsby techniques at play here (which is great learning about).” – Ole Ulrik Skipperud
