In this article, we'll explain how to install Gatsby Cli Deploy Project on Ubuntu 22.04.
Gatsby is a React-based open-source framework for creating websites and apps. Gatsby enables developers to build fast, secure, and powerful websites using a React-based framework and innovative data layer that makes integrating different content, APIs, and services into one web experience incredibly simple.
Build sites with the services you want, like Shopify, Stripe, and WordPress, quickly and easily with Gatsby’s 2000+ plugins. Integrate data from anywhere: APIs, databases, CMSs, static files -- or multiple sources at once.
This article will guide you with the installation process and deploying default starter Gatsby site.
- A Ubuntu 22.04 installed dedicated server or KVM VPS.
- A root user or normal user with sudo privileges.

It will clone as well as install required packages.
Once you’ve installed a Gatsby site, go to the root directory of your project and start the development server using following command:
gatsby develop -H 0.0.0.0
-H, –host Set host. Defaults to localhost
-p, –port Set port. Defaults to env.PORT or 8000
-o, –open Open the site in your (default) browser for you
-S, –https Use HTTPS
You can now view my-new-blog in the browser.
On Your Network: http://192.168.0.102:8000/
At the root of a Gatsby site, compile your application and make it ready for deployment:
--prefix-paths : Build site with link paths prefixed (set pathPrefix in your config)
--no-uglify : Build site without uglifying JS bundles (for debugging)
--profile : Build site with react profiling. See Profiling Site Performance with React Profiler
--open-tracing-config-file : Tracer configuration file (OpenTracing compatible). See Performance Tracing
--graphql-tracing : Trace (see above) every graphql resolver, may have performance implications.
--no-color, –no-colors : Disables colored terminal output
Serves the production build of your site for testing prior to deployment. Should be run from the root of your project.
-H, --host Set host. Defaults to localhost
-p, --port Set port. Defaults to 9000
-o, --open Open the site in your default browser for you
--prefix-paths Serve site with link paths prefixed (if built with pathPrefix in your gatsby-config file).
