Someone creating pages could run into a mysterious GraphQL error if any of the pages context has missing information:

GraphQLError: Variable "$slug" of required type "String!" was not provided.

This is hard for someone new to Gatsby to debug. We should check against this and warn.

i encounter this issue and found out it is because i didnot write slug in graphql query in the create page function in my gatsby node file

Hi @KyleAMathews wanted to know if there's any update on this.

I'm using a starter for dato, my request in gatsby-node.js work just fine with gatsby develop although the error is till log when building.

When i try gatsby build the same exact error you mentioned pops up, as if there's no context provided to my request.

EDIT: So, not so long after posting this i found that the problem came from overriding what createPage() does in gatsby-node.js by having my components inside /pages when for the contextto be actually passed onto the template the component needs to be inside /templates
