Welcome to part-7 of the series. You can find part-6 here.

As told in the earlier post, this series is based on the learning from this awesome udemy course by John Smilga

In this part we will start optimizing the background images in our site. Right now we have only one big background image in the home page. For this we will use the gatsby-background-image plugin. The doc for the same is here.

So, let’s stop our gatsby develop and npm install the plugin.

npm install

Rest of the chapter is exclusive content and will be in my upcoming book Gatsby Cookbook.

And our Blog page looks like below in browser.
