Astro bills itself as "the all-in-one web framework designed for speed," allowing you to "pull your content from anywhere." Their integration ecosystem helps you build performant, accessible, and SEO-friendly sites. Having built several sites with Astro, I can attest to the breadth of options to get your site up and running quickly.

But there was one noticeable gap in the ecosystem: database access. This is understandable because most Astro sites are built to be static. That's not to say you couldn't use a database with an Astro site, but it lacked the ease of use that their other integrations provide.

Tigris loves Astro

That's why we're excited to announce the official Tigris integration (@tigrisdata/astro) for Astro. This integration allows you to use Tigris as your database, and pull your data into your Astro site. This means you can build a static site with Astro, and use Tigris to power your content.
