Migrating from Jekyll to Gatsby
After much hype, I recently migrated my website from Gatsby to Jekyll. This blog post is about why did I choose to migrate to Gatsby and what were the learnings along the way.
Things were this bad that I had to experiment in production for my website for a change to be reflected. I also tweeted about it. This was a breaking point for me. I wanted to move to a build system which is more reliable. I opened Gatsby again and started looking for a theme which would fit my needs and I found a nice looking theme by Preston Richey. I spent few hours understanding the flow and updating the source code according to me. This time Netlify helped me with deploying my new website to my domain.
I now have my website built on React and the data being served as GraphQL queries but I still can’t find a way to show my other repositories as pages to my domain. Hoping this won’t be a breaking point again this time. ✌️
