Koop is a Gatsby static website developed for bloggers who are looking for a stylish, easy to manage web application that allows them to post content regularly. 

Koop takes advantage of the powerful tools at a developers disposal when it comes to creating a Gatsby website. The blogging template benefits from great Google Page Speed scores on both mobile devices and desktop, while maintaining classy animations and high-quality imagery throughout.

Instead of using a fully-equipped, heavyweight content management system, Koop uses MDX. This ensures it remains a lightweight application and keeps content editing all in one place, its GitHub repository.

If you’re looking at getting started with Gatsby, Koop is a great template to use. It uses a minimal amount of plugins to ensure developers who are new to the platform are not overwhelmed with top-level features. Koop purely focuses on the basics, which is delivering great looking content on mobile devices, as fast as possible.

For those looking for a brand-new blog template, Koop is maintained under open source and is available for use on personal website projects at the Gatsby Starter Library.
