V4

Netlify Status

The fourth iteration of my personal site built with Gatsby and hosted with Netlify.

📢 PSA for those who want to fork or copy this repo and use it for their own site:

Please be a decent person and give me proper credit by linking back to my website! Refer to this handy quora post if you're not sure.

👀 Looking for v3?

🚀 Quick Start

  1. Install the Gatsby CLI

    npm install -g gatsby-cli
  2. Install and switch to the correct version of Node using NVM

    nvm install
  3. Install dependencies

    yarn install
  4. Start the development server

    yarn start

Building and Running for Production

In addition to the development server started with yarn start, you can also generate a full static production build and serve that to preview the site as it will appear once deployed:

yarn build
yarn serve

🧐 What's inside?

A quick look at the top-level files and directories in this project.

  1. /node_modules: The directory where all of the modules of code that your project depends on (npm packages) are automatically installed.

  2. /src: This directory will contain all of the code related to what you will see on the front-end of your site (what you see in the browser), like your site header, or a page template. “Src” is a convention for “source code”.

  3. .gitignore: This file tells git which files it should not track / not maintain a version history for.

  4. .prettierrc: This is a configuration file for a tool called Prettier, which is a tool to help keep the formatting of your code consistent.

  5. gatsby-browser.js: This file is where Gatsby expects to find any usage of the Gatsby browser APIs (if any). These allow customization/extension of default Gatsby settings affecting the browser.

  6. gatsby-config.js: This is the main configuration file for a Gatsby site. This is where you can specify information about your site (metadata) like the site title and description, which Gatsby plugins you’d like to include, etc. (Check out the config docs for more detail).

  7. gatsby-node.js: This file is where Gatsby expects to find any usage of the Gatsby node APIs (if any). These allow customization/extension of default Gatsby settings affecting pieces of the site build process.

  8. gatsby-ssr.js: This file is where Gatsby expects to find any usage of the Gatsby server-side rendering APIs (if any). These allow customization of default Gatsby settings affecting server-side rendering.

  9. LICENSE: Gatsby is licensed under the MIT license.

  10. package-lock.json (See package.json below, first). This is an automatically generated file based on the exact versions of your npm dependencies that were installed for your project. (You won’t change this file directly).

  11. package.json: A manifest file for Node.js projects, which includes things like metadata (the project’s name, author, etc). This manifest is how npm knows which packages to install for your project.

  12. README.md: A text file containing useful reference information about your project.

  13. yarn.lock: Yarn is a package manager alternative to npm. You can use either yarn or npm, though all of the Gatsby docs reference npm. This file serves essentially the same purpose as package-lock.json, just for a different package management system.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
