How to set body margin to 0 in Gatsby and do not die trying

This is a short and sweet one but might take you a will to realize. Internally Gatsby heavily manipulates the <body/> tag, so no matter what you do. Classes and styles won't "stick" to it.

First place these older than the web css rules in a file:

#___gatsby {
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;

Then create (in case you don't have it already) the following file and import such CSS:

import "./styles.css"

Enjoy a new world without margins nor paddings!
