Hey it's Astro! 🚀
I recently encountered Astro which is really awesome if I say so myself! I now have used it to make this blog site for random web development logs, css tricks and css/design playgrounds.
What is Astro? 🚀
Quick take on it: 📝
- It is fast as they say it is - As Astro said in their documentations "it should be impossible to build a slow website in Astro" 🚀
- Super easy to use - if you already know React, Vue, other languages and even plain HTML you're good to go!
- Documentation is pretty awesome, community is pretty helpful.
- The use of Islands is extremely helpful on making the static site lightweight.
I looked at React but never that much, I have used Vue and Nuxt in past projects - which feels very similar to the way you'll use Astro. The tool is so flexible and simple where you can just crank out HTML in a way people can understand.
I'll continue to learn more about Astro as I build this website with it, I still have a lot to learn on actual the tool and the wonders that it'll provide to the web development space.
Huge thanks to one of the very few brilliant designer and developer I know of - Joshua, who introduced me to Astro! Check his awesome works! 🤝
