Gatsby is a static page framework that's based on react. it's used to display what would be static pages and uses the react framework.

To get started with Gatsby, just install it to your CLI and much like reacts “Create react app” you’ll run “gatsby new gatsby-site” within your CLI. this will create a new gatsby project in the directory that you’re in and name it “Gatsby-site”. From here you can write your webpages much like react pages. but do note that gatsby runs off of “Pages” meaning that each new file will be a different page that you can move to. so it could end up being a headache down the line if you want to create components that are reusable

All of your page code will be written inside of /src/pages

An alternative to Gatsby is next.js
