Quick Start


Rough outline.

Plugins are modules that implement Gatsby APIs. Easily solve common website build problems. Pull together open source components. For large complex builds, modularize customizations into site-specific plugins.

How to use?

Export function for browser/node/ssr. Link to lifecycle APIs doc.
