Today Netlify is thrilled to announce that we have acquired Gatsby!
We acquired Gatsby as part of our ongoing effort to accelerate the adoption of composable architectures. Gatsby’s Valhalla Content Hub and advanced cloud technology will be a key part of pushing our vision forward!
Special thanks to everyone who’s joined us so far on the journey to re-think the way web projects are built.
Great acquisition, but I’m not a fan of Gatsby myself, it’s traditionally had extremely slow build times and the sites I’ve seen built with it have had messy codebases.
Much of the systems direction also seems to have been based on solving problems that it creates, like the slow build times.
I just hope this doesn’t push Netlify further and further away from static and the dream of simplicity.
