What is Gatsby Valhalla?
The other day on Twitter Aremu posted a great question:
I still can't wrap my head around what @GatsbyJS Valhalla is. I get the part where it's supposed to unify multiple content sources but couldn't you do that with normal gatsby-node.js? Is it a GUI? Is it a concept/approach to work? an npm package?
In answer, I replied:
It's what you see when you open the graphiql explorer, but as a stand alone product to be used by any framework.
I have not had time to play around with it yet. But I am very excited about what Valhalla might do for the plugin ecosystem. If they succeed, I hope it encourages CMS and other services to up their Gatsby source and transformer game.
All the best,
