Internationalization of a Static Website with GatsbyJS

Do you use React? Do you need an internationalized static website? We have a brand new GatsbyJS starter supporting you out-of-box! Check out our Github.

In Ackee, we use React as the main front-end technology. Most of the time we create SPAs, but sometimes we need to create a static website with just a few pages, and an internationalization is compulsory every time. There is a lot of static site builders but if you want something easy to use with React, you should go with GatsbyJS and its huge starter ecosystem.

Reactive programming

Reactive programming has become essential for the way we make apps. Most companies today use some sort of a reactive framework, ranging from μFrameworks that implement the most basic Actor model, through hundreds of Future/Promise frameworks with different levels of API richness, all the way up to massive FRP frameworks that introduce a new programming paradigm and shape our application architecture in the process.
