Website Architecture

Concepts related to working between Gatsby and other systems: CMS, build & hosting, e-commerce, analytics, etc.

Choosing Your CMS(s)

At their core, most medium-sized and large Gatsby websites are backed by a so-called “headless CMS”; choosing the best one for your project is a key architectural decision.

Gatsby for E-commerce

E-commerce includes both core (products, catalog, cart/checkout) and additional functionality (accounts, promotions, reviews, etc).

Security

By taking advantage of the benefits of static content, Gatsby sites get a significant out-of-the-box boost. There is still work to do for you, though.

Accessibility

Gatsby helps you create websites that work for everyone, with defaults that bake in web accessibility as well as performance optimizations.
