🚀 Getting Started

Deploy to Gatsby Cloud

1. Create a Gatsby site.

Use the Gatsby CLI to clone the site and install dependencies:

npx gatsby new gatsby-starter-portfolio-emma https://github.com/LekoArts/gatsby-starter-portfolio-emma

2. Navigate to your new project.

cd gatsby-starter-portfolio-emma

3. Open the code and start customizing!

Start the site by running npm run develop.

Your site is now running at http://localhost:8000!

If you want to learn more about how you can use a Gatsby starter that is configured with a Gatsby theme, you can check out this shorter or longer tutorial. The tutorials don't exactly apply to this starter however the concepts are the same.

📝 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 @lekoarts/gatsby-theme-emma.

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-emma/ to shadow/override files. The Theme UI config can be configured by shadowing its files in src/gatsby-plugin-theme-ui/.

Adding content

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:

  1. Create a new folder inside content/projects
  2. Create a new index.mdx file, and add the frontmatter
  3. Add an image to the created folder (from step 1)
  4. Reference this image as your cover in the frontmatter
  5. Use defer to opt-in into Deferred Static Generation (DSG)
  6. Write your content below the frontmatter

Frontmatter reference:

---
client: "LekoArts"
title: "Theme"
cover: "./image.jpg"
date: "2019-06-10"
service: "Theme"
color: "#8e9d31"
defer: false
---

Adding a new page

Additional pages will be shown in the navigation (left side) and allow you to display content other than projects, e.g. a "Contact" or "About Me" page. General setup:

  1. Create a new folder inside content/pages
  2. Create a new index.mdx file, and add the frontmatter
  3. Add an image to the created folder (from step 1)
  4. Reference this image as your cover in the frontmatter
  5. Use defer to opt-in into Deferred Static Generation (DSG) (optional)
  6. Write your content below the frontmatter

Frontmatter reference:

---
title: "Name"
slug: "/name"
cover: "./name.jpg"
defer: false
---

Change your static folder

The static folder contains the icons, social media images and robots.txt. Don't forget to change these files, too! You can use Real Favicon Generator to generate the image files inside static.
