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: https://flotiq-gatsby-event-1.netlify.app
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] https://github.com/flotiq/flotiq-gatsby-event-1.git [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
- install npm dependencies
- setup variables in the .env file
- import example data to you Flotiq account using the
- start development server using the
Environment variables are stored in the
.env.development file inside the root of the directory should have the following structure:
GATSBY_FLOTIQ_API_KEY=YOUR FLOTIQ API KEY GA_MEASUREMENT_ID=YOUR MEASUREMENT ID
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
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.
flotiq-gatsby-event-1 directory in your code editor of choice and edit
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
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.
