The Week in Developer Tools
Communicate to your community easily with a simple, free JAMstack-based website builder that is scalable by default. This customizable template website for Covid-19 news enables local and international organizations to quickly share announcements, links to resources and local news updates with a customizable website built with Gatsby, Netlify and Contentful.
The LaunchDarkly plugin for Gatsby makes it easy to start using feature flags in any Gatsby site. This plugin is powered by the LaunchDarkly React SDK. This SDK uses server-sent events to stream feature flag updates to your site in realtime. With it you can control feature availability instantly without your users having to refresh the page.
Mux is the video API for the JAMstack. The philosophy behind Mux and how we approach video fits in neatly with the JAMstack philosophy. Mux will act as your video infrastructure by handling the storage, hosting and delivery of your video without getting in the way or being opinionated about the presentation.
