Gatsby is Awesome. Having website built time under two seconds, awesome SEO, easy to integrate APIs etc. Would check out Sanity.io. I have always used Contentful. Tried Contentful before?

I haven't yet, no. Does it also have a free tier to give it a try? I'll have to look into it!

I don't suppose you know of any good solutions for custom form creation (via a CMS) that plays nice with the JAMstack? It's the one thing keeping me from moving away from WordPress for some of our client sites.

Yes contentful has free tier that is relatively cool for beginners. Have you tried Netlify form? works well with Gatsby. Easier when you use the Netlify form plugin as well.

Yes, I've been using Netlify form for beach reports on the app I'm working on. Pretty straight forward!

I guess the issue I'm looking to solve is having a way for clients to create a custom form in the CMS, have that be built into the static files, and then received by Netlify. I guess I could just get a little more creative with Sanity or look into Contentful to see if it offers a better way to create that experience.

Thanks for the info!

I see contentful doing the Job here. Not to familiar with Sanity. I see your point now though.
