gatsby-source-tmdb

Source from The Movie Database (TMDb) API (v3) in Gatsby. You can leverage any endpoint from the official documentation and pull the data directly into Gatsby's GraphQL data layer. Customize the plugin to your needs by providing customized endpoints -- read more about that in the advanced configuration section.

You can see a live preview at tmdb.lekoarts.de (Source Code).

Create your own website with gatsby-starter-tmdb.

Install

npm install gatsby-source-tmdb

Prerequisites

You'll need an API Key and Session ID from TMDb.

  1. Create your API key
  2. Generate a Session ID

Recommendation: Save both values inside an .env file as environment variables. Read more about env vars in Gatsby.

You can find all information on the API endpoints in the official TMDb v3 documentation.

Configure

Add the plugin to your gatsby-config.js

require("dotenv").config()

module.exports = {
  plugins: [
    {
      resolve: "gatsby-source-tmdb",
      options: {
        apiKey: process.env.API_KEY,
        sessionID: process.env.SESSION_ID,
      }
    }
  ]
}

The plugin is not requesting all available endpoints by default but only a selected list of endpoints. It always requests the /account & /configuration endpoint. Please see the plugin's README for more detailed information, including options & advanced customization.
