Why Use the Gatsby WordPress Starter?

The gatsby-wordpress-starter is designed as a starting point for a Gatsby site that consumes data from a WordPress backend configured with the pantheon-decoupled and wp-graphql plugins installed.

The starter has a dependency on the @pantheon-systems/wordpress-kit that includes helpers that maximize available WordPress backend features.
