This is an amazing system that helps you to build awesome js powered static websites. I know that is a hand full, but if you take a look at this video you will dive right deep into it.

On the left column in the pages folder, you see the original code for the website, then in the public folder, you see the actual website which gets served to people.

Now... think fundamentally we are building the website with javascript commands to gatsby, gatsby compiles it into a static website and then you put the static files on your file server.

BOOM super duper fast website.

Of course, there is more to it, but that is a summary on how gatsby works.
