I made this portfolio using GatsbyJS, and Contentful as my CMS. It's hosted on Netlify, with webhooks for continuous deployment.

This is the current project I'm working on for a client. In my development environment, I've created a WordPress instance with custom post types as is suitable for the client. They also have a gym membership app that needed to be integrated to the site. Their app's plan didn't include API access, but just a couple iframes.

On top of optimized images, as is typical of Gatsby sites, I used HandBrake to optimize the home page's video. There's also a popular Gatsby plugin that scrape's some instagram post thumbnails during the build.

When the project's production ready, the intention is to have the WordPress instance on some cheap hosting, and the Gatsby site on netlify, using webhooks to rebuild the site everytime the content is updated on WordPress.
