Altarok

  • Generating pages using Gatsby createPages API call.
  • Page resources are in dir /src/contents/altarok/posts/
  • Required fields for postX.json:
    • priority: Number => higher priority -> ends up before in sort. Increment by 10 since you may want to add more in between time to time.
    • slug: String => altaybatuhan.com/{slug}
    • imageFileName: String => Image file name inside Gatsby's filesystem (include file extensions)
    • imageWidth: Number => Image Width (in px)
    • imageHeight: Number => Image Height (in px)
    • title: String => main title of the post
    • paragraphes: String[] => List of paragraphes to include in post

Which tech did I like using

  • GraphQL❤️ (Really convenient)
  • Static site 🚀 Gatsby❤️
  • Netlify❤️

What was hard

  • Site generation. Absolutely painful. Had to use Gatsby's API and lots of boilerplate code.
  • Image Placeholder & LazyLoading Images, using both at the same time can be mind boggling.

^ both are trade-off losses, gain from performance and efficiency by static site generation means doing things dynamically is going to be hard.

What to improve

  • File structure, could be more clean.
  • Design😿. Could be more elegant.
  • Outsourcing images might make the code much less complicated.
  • Self-documenting code, could use better JSX element names

TODO:

  • allow images in between paragraphes.
  • add capability of adding videos in between paragraphes.

Using netlify for hosting & ImprovMX for email forwarding
