Gatsby can be used to create static sites that are progressive web applications, following the latest web standards and optimized for high performance.
When coding and developing your site, Gatsby transforms it into a directory with a single HTML file and its static assets. This folder is uploaded to your favorite hosting provider, and that's it.
The advantage of a static content generator is that it produces lightweight sites because they store all the content in plain text format, in the system's files, and therefore does not need a database.
