Gatsby

Gatsby Contentful TypeScript starter

Gatsby starter with Contentful and TypeScript configuration.

πŸš€ Quick start

  1. Install the Gatsby CLI.

    The Gatsby CLI helps you create new sites using Gatsby starters (like this one!)

    # install the Gatsby CLI globally
    npm install -g gatsby-cli
  2. Create a Gatsby site.

    Use the Gatsby CLI to create a new site, specifying the default starter.

    # create a new Gatsby site using the default starter
    gatsby new my-project https://github.com/fhavrlent/gatsby-contentful-typescript-starter
  3. Set Contentful API keys.

    Rename empty.env to .env and set your Contentful API variables

  4. Start developing.

    Navigate into your new site’s directory and start it up.

    cd my-default-starter/
    npm develop
  5. Open the source code and start editing!

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

    Note: You'll also see a second link: http://localhost:8000___graphql. This is a tool you can use to experiment with querying your data. Learn more about using this tool in the Gatsby tutorial.

    Open the the my-default-starter directory in your code editor of choice and edit src/pages/index.js. Save your changes and the browser will update in real time!

🧐 What's inside?

A quick look at the top-level files and directories you'll see in a Gatsby project.

.
β”œβ”€β”€ node_modules
β”œβ”€β”€ src
β”œβ”€β”€ .gitignore
β”œβ”€β”€ .nvmrc
β”œβ”€β”€ .prettierrc
β”œβ”€β”€ empty.env
β”œβ”€β”€ gatsby-browser.js
β”œβ”€β”€ gatsby-config.js
β”œβ”€β”€ gatsby-node.js
β”œβ”€β”€ gatsby-ssr.js
β”œβ”€β”€ LICENSE
β”œβ”€β”€ package-lock.json
β”œβ”€β”€ package.json
β”œβ”€β”€ README.md
β”œβ”€β”€ tsconfig.json
β”œβ”€β”€ tslint.json
└── yarn.lock
  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. β€œSrc” is a convention for β€œsource code”.

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

  4. .nvmrc: NVM configuration so packages works as they should

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

  6. empty.env: Rename to .env and set your Contentful API key

  7. gatsby-browser.tsx: 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.

  8. 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).

  9. 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.

  10. gatsby-ssr.tsx: 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.

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

  12. 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).

  13. 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.

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

  15. tsconfig.json: Config file for TypeScript

  16. tslint.json: TS Lint configuration file

  17. 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.

πŸŽ“ Learning Gatsby

Looking for more guidance? Full documentation for Gatsby lives on the website. Here are some places to start:

  • For most developers, we recommend starting with our in-depth tutorial for creating a site with Gatsby. It starts with zero assumptions about your level of ability and walks through every step of the process.

  • To dive straight into code samples head to our documentation. In particular, check out the β€œGuides”, API reference, and β€œAdvanced Tutorials” sections in the sidebar.
