Gatsby Theme Anchor
When a podcast starts the most difficult part is sharing it with the rest of world, this Gatsby Theme will help to solve that! The idea behind it is to provide a customizable platform where the podcasters can:
- Have a Landing page with the last episodes of the show and more relevant information.
- Add information about the show inside the About Page
- Showcase all the podcast inside the Podcast Page
- Possibility to add/edit/remove content using a CMS view
BTW, I recorded a really short podcast in which I talked about this project. So in case you want to know more about it here it's the link to the episde!

How to Start 👷
Given this project use
yarn Workspace if you download the project you will download the entire project, demo and theme all together. You can always clone the project and remove the additional folder.
In order to avoid confusion, I created a branch called
demo with only the code to run the example. Go your terminal and run:
> git clone --single-branch --branch demo https://github.com/EmaSuriano/gatsby-theme-anchor.git
This will clone the project with only the example on it. Then you need to install the dependencies and in this case,
gatsby-theme-anchor will be taken from
npm and not from the local folder (like
yarn workspace was doing).
> yarn #install dependencies > yarn start #start project

Deploying your site
In order to deploy and enable all the powerful of the CMS I highly recommend using Netlify. It's a static website hosting with the capability of synchronizing with your GitHub repository, so then every time you push a new deployment is released!
Please follow this Step by Step Guide from the official documentation of Netlify. When you reach to the point of setting the command the output folder, you need to set as command
yarn build and as output folder
This last step is totally optionally but it's one of my favorite of this setup. As this theme use Netlify CMS you can enable the
Identity feature inside the deployment configuration that will allow to modify your data through the deployed site by making commit to the repository.
Please follow this Guide to enable.I already provide a proper
/static/admin folder but you still need to enable from your side. In order to check if everything is working, go to the route
/admin of your deployed site, there you need to authenticate (you can pick different services in the previous step) and once you are inside the CMS every change you make it will push a commit to the repository. Dispatching a new release of your website
