Basic front-end languages
HTML is the standard markup language used to create web pages and its elements form the building blocks of all websites.
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a simple mechanism for adding style (e.g., fonts, colors, spacing) to web documents.
React makes it painless to create interactive UIs. Design simple views for each state in your application, and React will efficiently update and render just the right components when your data changes. Declarative views make your code more predictable and easier to debug.
Learn Once, Write Anywhere
We don’t make assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, so you can develop new features in React without rewriting existing code. React can also render on the server using Node and power mobile apps using React Native.

Build anything you can imagine
Gatsby gives frontend teams the tools and technology they need to build world-class web experiences. From marketing sites, to eCommerce stores, to documentation. Gatsby can help you build it.
The hardest parts of the web, made simple.
Performance. SEO. Security. Integrations. Accessibility. We’ve got it covered for you. Gatsby makes the hardest parts of building an amazing digital experience simple, leaving you more time focusing on your business.
• Performance that's off the charts Gatsby automates code splitting, image optimization, inlining critical styles, lazy-loading, prefetching resources, and more to ensure your site is fully optimized. No manual tuning required.
• Scalability you can count on Gatsby sites don’t require complex scaling operations or expensive hosting. They scale when needed, but when traffic drops so does your usage — and your costs. Host at scale for pennies.
• Security out of the box Gatsby’s serverless rendering generates static HTML at build time. No server and no reachable database equals no malicious requests, DDOS attacks, or accidental exposure. A Gatsby site’s attack surface is nonexistent.
• Accessibility for everyone Recognized by WebAIM as the most accessible web framework, we build in best practices like accessible routing, progressive page enhancement and a built-in linting tool to find accessibility errors. Help make the web work for everyone.

Algolia provides a developer-friendly RESTful API for website and app instant search. Most web services and mobile apps, such as Spotify, Salesforce or Amazon need to provide a fast and meaningful access to database objects via a simple search box. People want to find songs, invoices, products in just a few keystrokes.
Algolia’s search API returns full results in less than 10ms in average, allowing as-you-type result display, “à la Google”, up to 200 times faster than other search technologies.
Our focus is on small database objects (such as contacts or products), so we designed new ranking rules built for this kind of data. We use new criteria to rank results, such as the popularity for a song, or, for a product, how many times it was put in a shopping cart.
This new engine design, optimized for databases, enables the apps and services who use our API to provide their users with meaningful and relevant results at the first keystroke.
