Migrating to Astro

4 months ago -  

I have always been a fan of static site generators. I started my blog with Jekyll and GitHub Pages back in 2015, and then I switched to Gatsby in 2019. At somepoint I want to try Next.js for my blog and I said to myself that it might not be a good idea to use it as why for a blog we should send uncessary JavaScript to the client. But then I found Astro and I was like “Wow, this is what I was looking for!“. I then decided to migrate my blog to Astro, the migration was pretty easy actually it didn’t take more than a couple of hours, they have a migration guide that you can follow to migrate your blog to Astro if you want.

It has so many cool features like:

  • ViewTrasnsition
  • Server Side Rendering
  • File System Routing
  • Markdown Support
  • TypeScript Support
  • and more…
