Gatsby development with Tinloof

Tinloof is a Gatsby development agency that can help you build fast, SEO-friendly, and secure websites for your business.

Our Gatsby developers have experience building dozens of sites and ecommerces, and embed within your organization as regular team members to keep communication effective and consistent.

At Tinloof, we focus on achieving the highest Lighthouse and Core Web Vitals, including accessibility, best practices, and SEO.

Best Practices

Gatsby for websites

Gatsby websites are built with performance and speed in mind, which can be beneficial for search engine optimization (SEO). Fast loading times and efficient code can help improve your site's ranking on search engines, which can drive more organic traffic to your site.

Gatsby is also designed to be SEO-friendly out of the box, with features like automatic generation of sitemaps, optimized images, and support for server-side rendering. These features can help make it easier for search engines to crawl and index your site, which can improve your site's ranking and visibility.

Working with a Gatsby agency like Tinloof helps you get to market faster while keeping in mind best practices.

Gatsby for web applications

Tinloof offers web application development services for businesses who need custom software to solve a specific problem.

Web applications usually restrict access to their features via a login, and provide a dashboard for their users to manage their profile, preferences or billing information. We leverage technologies like Supabase and Stripe to enable such features.

Web application frontends are built with frameworks like Gatsby that enable performance and security.

Gatsby for progressive web apps (PWAs)

Progressive web applications (PWAs) are web applications that use modern web technologies to deliver a native app-like experience to users. They are designed to work on any device, regardless of the browser or platform, and can be installed on a user's device just like a native app.

Gatsby can be used to build the frontend of PWAs. It offers offline support, meaning users can still access your app and its content even when they don't have an internet connection.

Our Gatsby developers follow the PWA Gatsby documentation to create responsive and fast native-like apps.

Lately we've built Match Cards, a PWA available on any browser, App Store, and Google Play Store.

UX design and frontend implementation with Gatsby

Tinloof is a Gatsby agency that also offers web design services, which means that we can define the user interface, user experience, and branding of your website or ecommerce.

After the design mockups are completed, Tinloof designers do the handover to our Gatsby developers who take care of implementing the frontend. The frontend is built with page speed in mind, ensuring that response times are kept minimal when your users interact with your site or app.

As part of our frontend development services, we ensure that your site or app is:

- SEO-friendly: following the best practices in technical SEO

- Responsive: we follow a design system and the best CSS libraries like Tailwind

- Accessible: following Google Lighthouse and WCAG recommendations

- Robust: we use technologies like TypeScript to point out compilation errors at development time

Backend and API integration with Gatsby

Gatsby can be used as a frontend framework for your backend.

It is an "API-first" tool, meaning that it pulls data from an API rather than a database. This means that you can use any kind of backend with Gatsby, as long as it has an API.

One common way to use Gatsby with a backend is to build the backend as an API that serves data to the Gatsby frontend. This is known as an "API-first" or "headless" architecture, since the frontend and backend are decoupled and communicate through APIs.

To integrate Gatsby with a backend, you can use one of the many plugins that are available for pulling data from various sources, such as CMSs (Sanity), databases (Supabase), and third-party APIs. You can also use Gatsby's GraphQL API to query your own custom API for data.

Had the pleasure of collaborating with the agency for building a frontend for our backend offering.
Things went smoothly, there were no delays in feature deliveries and in terms of communication, my feeling is that we were always on the same page. I can only higlhly recommend Tinloof!

A particular note is for their front-end skills. The platform performs at cutting-edge levels in performance (1.3 seconds to load the heaviest page), SEO (lighthouse score of 98%), accessibility, and responsiveness (mobile is particularly excellent). After product validation, our users were amazed by the UI/UX design, something looking "professional, even better than dominant incumbents in the market.
