📝 Using and modifying this starter
Important Note: Please read the guide Shadowing in Gatsby Themes to understand how to customize the underlying theme!
This starter creates a new Gatsby site that installs and configures the theme
Have a look at the theme's README and files to see what options are available and how you can shadow the various components including Theme UI. Generally speaking you will want to place your files into
src/@lekoarts/gatsby-theme-emilia/ to shadow/override files. The Theme UI config can be configured by shadowing its files in
Adding a new project
New projects will be shown on the index page of this theme and can be added by creating MDX files inside
content/projects. General setup:

coverin the frontmatter
- Write your content below the frontmatter (optional)
--- cover: "./sean-foley-0JD7kvxAq0Y-unsplash.jpg" date: "2019-09-10" title: "Emilia" areas: - Neon - Lights ---
The frontmatter alone is enough, if you'd like to add additional content you can do so by writing your content (as usual with MDX) below the frontmatter. It'll be displayed in the header of the project below the date and areas.

Place an image with the name
avatar inside the folder
content/assets (or your custom
assetsPath which you defined for the theme).
