Astro joins daily.dev, automate publishing from Notion, data visualization in Astro, migrating from Gatsby to Astro

Hello, Astronauts!

Happy Pancake Day to my fellow Astronauts here in the UK. If you're reading this from outside the UK, you might be a little perplexed right now.

As we all agree, 2024 is the Year of Astro, but this past week also ushered in the Year of the Dragon. Happy Lunar New Year to those celebrating.

And finally, romance is in the air, so in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, let’s check out some links I think you’ll love this week. ❤️

Automate publishing from Notion 📝

Notion is an incredibly popular note-taking app, but have you considered Notion as a CMS for your Astro project?

Mufti Azan Farooqi has produced a great write-up on how they use Notion to curate a weekly learning list and then automate the publishing process to Astro to share this list with friends and colleagues.

Our showcase this week comes from someone who needs little introduction to the Astro Community, Michael Andreuzza.

Michael, known for his incredible work on Lexington Themes, has rebuilt the awesome Color and Fonts project using Astro.

True to Michael’s trademark style, Color and Fonts exudes clean, minimal vibes, making it a resource you'll want to revisit time and again.
