In terms of technical challenges, JWT auth, dynamic content in terms of reviews and client only routes, availability managed with firebase, stripe payments, user form scaffolding, list goes on! But yeah keen to do a SS blog post

gened

Ah sorry, i thought it might more of a general thing due to it being a huge technical challenge with SS + gatsby

Hey all 👋 we've been pretty busy building multiple Gatsby + Silverstripe sites (subsites) using SS graphql over the last year or so. We were meant to do a soft launch last week but didn't quite get there because of all if the crazy covid-19 news. All of our partner restaurants (1400 around the globe) are all shut unfortunately so we've had to put a delay on an official launch. In the meantime I thought I'd show off the site to see what's possible with Gatsby + Silverstripe https://new.firsttable.co.nz/

Its amazing how much faster gatsby makes a site load

Is it much extra effort getting to build this compared to a normal SS site? i.e Effort vs benefit?

gened

There is a lot of effort! hah. I will be able to tell you about the benefit payoff in the future but we think there will be a lot.

jkersu

Haha do you think its a lot easier second time around, once you've done it once?😅

jkersu

Just had an interesting discussion yesterday internally about how bloated/slow websites are becoming these days

gened

Yeah definitely second time around. Would love to help lower the learning curve where possible
