Gatsby Theme Twenty Twenty One

There is a Gatsby Theme Twenty Twenty One by Reflexjs developer arshad. The WordPress Twenty Twenty One theme is fully block-based theme. Because there are not many examples of Gatsby themes with Gutenberg block editor use, except Gatsby Stater WordPress Twenty Twenty by Henrik Wirth which is a great learning example.

Twenty Twenty-One is a blank canvas for your ideas and it makes the block editor your best brush. With new block patterns, which allow you to create a beautiful layout in a matter of seconds, this theme’s soft colors and eye-catching — yet timeless — design will let your work shine. Take it for a spin! See how Twenty Twenty-One elevates your portfolio, business website, or personal blog. WordPress Themes Directory

The Gatsby Theme Twenty Twenty One github repository documentation describes the theme “with support for Gutenberg blocks, menu and menu locations, customizable blog page and more…” but currently still work in progress!

An Honest Review of Gatsby

An interesting post titled “An Honest Review of Gatsby” by David Cramer, Founder/CTO of Sentry (an  application monitoring platform helps every developer diagnose, fix, and optimize the performance of their code) where he discusses on the flaws of Gatsby as a framework.

It’s a static website generator. It literally does not need GraphQL all over the place. While there are few instances in the real world where that is valuable, it shouldn’t require a GraphQL API to read objects that are already in memory. David Cramer, Founder/CTO of Sentry

I couldn’t agree more on this point, which I too feel that the GraphQL may not be necessary in simple Gatsby powered WordPress sites. That could be made simpler without it so that Gatsby could be made more attractive to non-JavaScript users.
