Gatsby starter for events with Flotiq source

Kick off your project with this event boilerplate. This starter ships with the main Gatsby configuration files you might need to get up and running blazing fast with the blazing fast app generator for React.

Live Demo:

This project use:

  • Flotiq - Headless CMS for string your data (You can create account here)
  • Tailwind - utility-first CSS framework
  • Flotiq source plugin - connector for fetching data from Flotiq
  • Flotiq components for react - components library designed and written to work perfectly with Flotiq Content Objects and display your data beautifully

This project works on node >=18.0.0, as require Gatsby 5.

Quick start using Flotiq CLI

Start the project from template using Flotiq CLI

npm install -g flotiq-cli
flotiq start [projectName] [flotiqApiKey]
  • projectName - Project path (if you wish to start project in the current directory - use .)
  • flotiqApKey - Read and write API key to your Flotiq account

This command will:

  • create project based on template using the gatsby new command
  • install npm dependencies
  • setup variables in the .env file
  • import example data to you Flotiq account using the flotiq import command
  • start development server using the gatsby develop command


Environment variables are stored in the .env files. The .env.development file inside the root of the directory should have the following structure:


Import data (optional)

This step is optional and is not necessary if you used flotiq-cli to start the project.

If you wish to import example data to your account, before running gatsby develop run:

flotiq import . [flotiqApiKey]

It will add four example objects to your Flotiq account.

Note: You need to put your Read and write API key as the flotiqApiKey for import to work, You don't need any content types in your account.


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

cd flotiq-gatsby-event-1/
gatsby develop

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 flotiq-gatsby-event-1 directory in your code editor of choice and edit src/templates/index.js. Save your changes and the browser will update in real time!

Manage your content using Flotiq editor

You can now easily manage your content using Flotiq editor.

As Gatsby generates static pages based on content from headless CMS, you have to rebuild site after the data changes.

Update data in development

When you update the Content Object in Flotiq you have to rerun gatsby develop. When you update the Content Type Definition in Flotiq, you have to run gatsby clean command.

Note: To simplify this process you can configure Gatsby Refreshing Content endpoint.

Update data in production

When you update the data in Flotiq you have to rebuild project using gatsby build command.

If you use hosting services listed below you can simplify the process:

For other services you can configure Webhook on data change or manually rebuild site in hosting service.

  1. .flotiq: This directory contains content types necessary to starter to work.

  2. .github: This directory contains templates of GitHub issues.

  3. /node_modules: This directory contains all packages that your project depends on (npm packages) and are automatically installed.

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

  5. /src/assets: This directory will contain all static assets for the project (images, favicons, custom fonts).

  6. /src/components: This directory will contain all small build blocks for your templates and layouts.

  7. /src/layouts: This directory will contain all layout templates for your pages.

  8. /src/pages: This directory will contain all static pages for the project.

  9. /src/sections: This directory will contain all big build blocks for your project.

  10. /src/style: This directory will contain global styles for the project.

  11. /src/templates: This directory will contain all templates for automatically generated pages.

  12. .eslintignore: This file tells eslint which files it should not track / not fix.

  13. .eslintrc.js: This is a configuration file for Eslint. Eslint is a tool to help keep the formatting of your code consistent automatically.

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

  15. .prettierignore: This file tells prettier which files it should not track / not fix.

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

  17. app.json: Configuration file for Heroku deploy. You can safely remove this file if you do not plan to deploy on Heroku.

  18. 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.

  19. 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).
