A Look at Partial Hydration in Gatsby 5
Gatsby 5 is coming soon– the Alpha is live, and we’ve touched on a bunch of new features in Gatsby 5 in Tuesday’s Update Week post. But now I’d like to focus on one feature in particular: partial hydration. We’ll go over what it is, how it is implemented in Gatsby 5, the benefits of partial hydration, and look into how to use it.
