Functions on Gatsby Cloud
Introducing Functions on Gatsby Cloud
Bring an entire backend to your website, without managing a backend. Build a powerful, dynamic, and scalable website with just a few lines of code.
Like everything else in the Gatsby universe, your serverless functions are blazing fast to kick-off, responding in just milliseconds.
Just drop your express-style Node code into the /api folder, and Gatsby Cloud will do the rest - fetching data, processing images, powering forms, and more.
Functions scale automatically since they are “event-driven”. Only pay for the compute power you use, and use as much as you need.
Build rich web experiences
Bring your site to life
Functions on Gatsby Cloud removes the hassle of maintaining separate infrastructure while allowing you to add dynamic functionality to a Gatsby site. Developers can easily add forms, authentication, email triggers, and more - all with just a few lines of code.
