Introducing Gatsby 4

Static. That. Scales.

Gatsby 4, now in Beta, combines the control and scalability of server-side rendering with the performance of static-site generation, creating a whole new web of possibilites.

What’s new and what’s coming

Watch @SchauDustin introduce Gatsby 4 and its new features (and come back for more Camp content, soon) – or scroll down for the feature reel:

Deferred Static Generation

The performance of static sites without all of those long build times

The benefits of statically generated websites - performance, security, reliability - are now available to websites of all shapes and sizes, giving teams a new way to build and deliver digital experiences at scale.

Server-Side Rendering

Request and render data at run-time with Gatsby

Gatsby 4 now supports Server-Side Rendering, giving developers the choice of generating content at either build time, as with static-site generation, or at run time. With Server-Side Rendering, teams can now run more effective A/B tests, personalize content, and more all while still using the Gatsby framework.

Parallel Query Running

Unlock the speed & power of parallel processing

We’ve cut down build times even further with the introduction of parallel query running to Gatsby 4. Often the largest part of the build process, queries will now take advantage of multi-processing and be share across cores. This will cut down build times dramatically, especially for large sites that spend a long duration in the Query Running phase.

Content Sync

Preview the right content, every time
