Very nice! I tried to get Gatsby to work twice and always hit some weird point where it'd mysteriously stop working even if I reverted code (I ended up continuing with my hand-coded main page with a blog in Jekyll, which was less fun, but also easier to get out the digital door), so I'm pleased to see that you got so much working so smoothly; makes me think round-3 might be worth the trouble...

Gatsby can break at a thousand places, so that sounds like everything was in order :D For example even this page broke at some point due to the models being changed in the cms, but a cache cleanup withgatsby clean usually puts things back into place.

Ha! Very true. It was over the summer, so I forget what I tried, but it was long enough each time to decide that I needed to learn a lot more to make it work effectively. One day, I'll go back to it, since using React to deal with the layout is too compelling to ignore.
