I'm not really sure what's soured your opinion of Gatsby so severely, but I've had quite the opposite experience to you building and shipping multiple production Gatsby and Next code bases. In my mind, Gatsby's what I reach for by default, but if I know I'll have custom use cases or need more backend functionality then Next is my choice. Also, with Next's recent addition of serverless-rendering (nextjs.org/blog/next-8/#serverless...) it will likely fit in a lot better to my existing serverless applications.

You've missed some tests for Gatsby's Redux actions/reducers here: github.com/gatsbyjs/gatsby/tree/ma...

I've never heard of documentation that was too beginner friendly, but if you want some more complex or involved documentation from Gatsby, check out some of their "behind the scenes" docs that explain the architecture decisions in Gatsby:

Gatsby also hosted a webinar recently that detailed a lot of the technical features included out of the box with Gatsby: gatsbyjs.com/behind-the-scenes/
