    For those of you interested, we do some pretty neat things under the hood. Here's a summary

    • Built statically with Hugo. See our repo here
    • Show when a user is logged in (in the nav bar) using cookies + Javascript
    • Super fast site search with Algolia (try searching)
    • Automatically generate responsive images with Cloudinary
    • CMS with Forestry.io (of course)

      From what I understand Forestry doesn't support Gatsby static sites. Any insight into if this is something we can expect moving forward?

        That's right, we currently support Jekyll and Hugo. Supporting Gatsby is something we would like to do but it's not currently on our roadmap. Do you exclusively use Gatsby?

          Not David but I'll chime in here. I used to use Jekyll but after trying Gatsby, I have been using it exclusively in my production sites. Can't beat the speed / ease of GraphQL data. Feels really modern.

          I've been using Netlify CMS with Gatsby (also git based) but Forestry.io seems great (& beautiful). The Gatsby community is pretty active and could probably help work on integration.

            Like Jekyll, does most of your content live in Markdown files and Front Matter? Or to do you use other data sources for your Gatsby sites?

              Most of the sites I’ve done recently the content lives in Markdown and Frontmatter yeah! Super flexible.

              The other data sources are cool, but markdown usually make the most sense and is well supported with plugins/tutorials/etc.

          Just want to second Gatsby. I recently moved my site from Jekyll on Github pages to Gatsby on Netlify and never plan to move back.

      Awesome site, I love seeing 3D on the web. Maybe the word "Forestry" on the processing plant would be handy? I didn't initially realise it was the Forestry logo on the side.

      I see its an old thread, but still forestry not supporting Gatsby. However I was able to import it as vuepress, but not working as expected. Gatsby is much popular now and got great community following.

      Any plans to support in the near future?

      Also, I don't see its hosting to Gitlab pages even they support it.
