If you want to add console message on Gatsby website but don’t want to mess with useEffect or componentDidMount, easiest way will be to do it in gatsby-browser.js file.

Gatsby browser file will be skipped when statically generating site and will be executed on every page. It can be used to import global styles, but also to log messages.

// gatsby-browser.js
console.log('message')

And that is it. On next site visit you’ll be greeted with message in your console.
