React is fast, and so your CMS should be

If your content is always fetched from a single geographical location, there’s no point in building a website with a serverless architecture. Dato headless CMS offers your content from a CDN with edges all around the globe, minimizing your React app latency.

const client = new GraphQLClient({ url: endpoint });
function App() {
return (

<Movie />
// src/Movie.js
import React from "react";
import { useQuery } from "graphql-hooks";
const Movie = () => {
const { loading, error, data } = useQuery(
query: `{
movie(filter: { title: { eq: "Inception" } }) {
actors {
if (loading) return <div>Loading...</div>;
if (error) return <div>Something bad happened</div>;
return (
