Netlify Acquires GatsbyJS

It was announced today that Netlify has acquired Gatsby Inc.

Netlify Acquires Gatsby, Its Struggling Jamstack Competitor - The New Stack

Netlify coined the term Jamstack and inspired an ecosystem. Gatsby tried to compete, but today Netlify announced it has acquired the company.


What do you think this means for...

  • The JS/webdev ecosystem?
  • The future of Gatsby?
  • The future of the Composable Web?
  • You, as a developer? (Or your team!)

You don't need to love Netlify, but their open source contributions are definitely good for the future of the web. They sponsor a lot of great projects. I really don't think that there will be many changes.

I was never a fan of Netlify. So, don't know about that. However, I really like Vercel + Next.js ecosystem.

Interesting, why does Netlify need Gatsby? ๐Ÿค” Like, to mirror the Vercel/Next pair?

Netlify is cool FWIW, maybe theyโ€™ll make Gatsby cool again as well ๐Ÿ‘
