Create a Gatsby Website and Deploy It with Vercel

Create a simple Gatsby website and deploy it live with Vercel.

Gatsby is a popular front-end framework that helps you create static apps and websites with React.

Step 1: Set Up Your Gatsby Project

Firstly, set up a Gatsby project by installing Gatsby CLI globally from your terminal:

npm i -g gatsby-cli

Installing gatsby-cli globally with npm.

Then you can run the following command to create a Gatsby project locally:

gatsby new my-gatsby-project

Creating a Gatsby project with the Gatsby CLI.

Next, move into the directory from your terminal with cd my-gatsby-project. You can see your new project in a local development environment by using the npm develop command, set in the package.json by Gatsby CLI.

Step 2: Deploying Your Gatsby Website with Vercel

To deploy your Gatsby app with a Vercel for Git Integration, make sure it has been pushed to a Git repository.

Import the project into Vercel using your Git Integration of choice:

After your project has been imported, all subsequent pushes to branches will generate Preview Deployments, and all changes made to the Production Branch (commonly "main") will result in a Production Deployment.

Once deployed, you will get a URL to see your app live, such as the following: https://gatsby.now-examples.now.sh

Set up a Gatsby app with a few clicks using the Deploy button, and create a Git repository for it in the process for automatic deployments for your updates.
