Gatsby Lifecycle APIs

Gatsby provides a rich set of lifecycle APIs to hook into Gatsby’s bootstrap, build, and client runtime operations.

Gatsby’s design principles include:

  • Conventions > code but use low-level primitives to build conventions with code.
  • Extracting logic and configuration into plugins should be trivial and encouraged.
  • Plugins are easy to open source and reuse. They’re just NPM packages.

See the links along the left under “REFERENCE” for the full API documentation.
