Announcing Static Fuse: Gatsby + WordPress

Static Fuse Logo

I got really interested in Gatsby recently, and started creating themes and websites with it. I decided to make things official, and started a project called Static Fuse.

Static Fuse is a collaboration with Justin Hall to help developers, freelancers, and agencies build Gatsby + WordPress sites. Justin and I have been working on this stuff separately, and we decided to team up for this project.

We started Static Fuse because we found that while Gatsby is great, there are a lot of problems to solve when developing with WordPress.

Right now we have mostly been working on our Publisher theme, and a Netlify deploy plugin called Gatsby Toolkit. The longer term goal is to create a set of opinionated tools that are framework-ish, in the sense that they will have standardized ways of doing things. We are working on solving a lot of problems using WordPress with Gatsby, and creating a stable foundation, so that developers can build sites for clients.

Justin and I recorded a short podcast on who we are, what problems we are solving, and why.

We also released a tutorial on how to build headless WordPress sites with Gatsby using our free tools.

Everything is free and open source, we’d love your feedback.
