Creating routes

Gatsby makes it easy to programmatically control your pages. Pages can be created in three ways:

  • In your site’s gatsby-node.js by implementing the API createPages
  • Gatsby core automatically turns React components in src/pages into pages
  • Plugins can also implement createPages and create pages for you

See the Creating and Modifying Pages for more detail.

Linking between routes

You can use gatsby-link to link to these routes — this will provide almost-instantaneous page transitions via prefetching. More on Gatsby Link.

You can also use standard <a> links, but you won’t get the benefit of prefetching in this case.

If you don’t want all of your content available on the public web, Gatsby lets you create client-only routes that live behind an authentication gate.
