CSS Modules

CSS modules and Gatsby

Gatsby works out of the box with CSS Modules. Here is an example site that uses CSS modules.

What is a CSS module?

Quoting from the CSS Module homepage:

A CSS Module is a CSS file in which all class names and animation names are scoped locally by default.

CSS Modules are very popular as they let you write CSS like normal but with a lot more safety. The tool automatically makes class and animation names unique so you donā€™t have to worry about selector name collisions.

When to use CSS modules

CSS Modules are highly recommended for those new to building with Gatsby (and React in general).
