Build a Digital Library Using Gatsby and GraphQL

In this project, we'll create a digital library application using Gatsby and GraphQL. We'll work with GraphQL to fetch data from a JSON file, and use it in our web applications. We'll have a fully functional digital library application with Gatsby links to demonstrate the lightning-fast speed of the framework.

Project Description

This project consists of ten tasks that will help us build a digital library using Gatsby. Gatsby is a React-based, open-source framework with excellent performance, scalability, and security. First, we’ll demonstrate how we can easily collect data and transform it into a web page using different Gatsby plugins. Then, we’ll query JSON data using GraphQL.

Finally, we’ll use Gatsby links to demonstrate the incredible speed of the framework. The final layout of the application will look like this:
