gatsby-contentful-starter

Gatsby Contentful starter for creating a blog

The index page of the starter blog

Static sites are scalable, secure and have very little required maintenance. They come with a drawback though. Not everybody feels good editing files, building a project and uploading it somewhere. This is where Contentful comes into play.

With Contentful and Gatsby you can connect your favorite static site generator with an API that provides an easy to use interface for people writing content and automate the publishing using services like Travis CI or Netlify.

Features

  • Simple content model and structure. Easy to adjust to your needs.
  • Contentful integration using our Sync API
  • Using our Delivery API.
  • Responsive/adaptive images via gatsby-image

Getting started

Install Yarn (if you haven't already).

Get the source code and install dependencies.

$ git clone git@github.com:contentful-userland/gatsby-contentful-starter.git
$ yarn install

Or use the Gatsby CLI.

Set up of the needed content model and create a configuration file

This project comes with a Contentful setup command yarn run setup.

Command line dialog of the yarn run setup command

This command will ask you for a space ID, and access tokens for the Contentful Management and Delivery API and then import the needed content model into the space you define and write a config file (./contentful.json).

yarn run setup automates that for you but if you want to do it yourself rename .contentful.json.sample to .contentful.json and add your configuration in this file.
