Real-time previews with DatoCMS + Gatsby Cloud

DatoCMS is fully compatible with Gatsby Cloud. Share temporary URLs for viewing changes immediately and in context, so you can make sure that the new header plays nicely with the rest of the page before hitting “publish.”, and dramatically reduce the time you spend waiting for builds or deployments.

A component-centric CMS, just like Gatsby

Thanks to React, Gatsby makes using components easy right from the get-go. You should expect the same from your CMS. A component-based approach allows developers to clearly divide work amongst themselves and progress without having to rely on each other every step of the way.
