3 directories, 10 files


This directory is the theme package itself. You should rename this at some point to be gatsby-theme-{my-theme-name}. Also change the package.json name field and the corresponding dependency in the example directory's package.json/gatsby-config.js to match the chosen name.

  • gatsby-theme-minimal/
    • gatsby-config.js: An empty gatsby-config that you can use as a starting point for building functionality into your theme.
    • index.js: Since themes also function as plugins, this is an empty file that gatsby needs to use this theme as a plugin.
    • package.json: The dependencies that your theme will pull in when people install it. gatsby should be a peerDependency.


This is an example usage of your theme. It should look the same as the site of someone who installed and used your theme from npm.

  • example/
    • gatsby-config.js: Specifies which theme to use and any other one-off config a site might need.
    • src/: Source code such as one-off pages or components that might live in a user's site.

You can run the example with:

yarn workspace example develop
You can’t perform that action at this time.
