Gatsby starter site with Kentico Kontent


How to run the code

The preferred way is to use Gatsby CLI gatsby new command, but you can of course simply clone or fork this repo.

Use Gatsby CLI

Make sure you have Gatsby CLI installed via npm list -g gatsby-cli. If not, you can install CLI via npm install --global gatsby-cli.

Then, navigate to your projects directory and run gatsby new [subdirectory name] Replace [subdirctory name] with your project directory's name. The CLI tool will essentially do three things:

  • create a subdirectory
  • clone the starter site codefiles into that subdirectory
  • run yarn install to get all dependencies for you

Clone or fork the repo

Clone or fork this repo. Once it's done, navigate to the app's root directory and run:

yarn install

Run the starter site

Now, run:

yarn develop (or gatsby develop, should you have the Gatsby CLI installed)

This will bootstrap the site, build all static pages and start the site at http://localhost:8000 . You'll also be able to test arbitrary GraphQL queries in the GraphiQL interface via http://localhost:8000/___graphql.


You may use any IDE, however, we've added a settings file for Visual Studio Code for easier debugging.

To get a smooth debugging experience, you can temporarily copy the gatsby-source-kontent directory of the source plugin to the /plugins/@kentico directory of your site. Then, in the context of /plugins/@kentico/gatsby-source-kontent, run two commands npm install and npm run build.

Using the Kentico Kontent JavaScript SDK configuration object

The source plugin used by this starter in turn uses the Kentico Kontent Delivery SDK in the background. You can put the configuration object of the SDK into the deliveryClientConfig property of the gatsby-config.js file.


Of all the artifacts of Kentico Kontent, the starter site only displays content items and only in the default language. But, our source plugin also provides content types and items in non-default languages. The plugin links them all so that these data can be fetched in one GraphQL query.

Check out the source plugin for more details on which kinds of data and relationships it supports.


You can’t perform that action at this time.
