Gatsby Landing Page Starter
A simple, minimal, easy-to-use landing page starter without all sorts of bells and whistles bolted on that you'll just have to strip out later. Create a super fast, beautiful landing page from a barebones template with a single page that already looks good.
If you do not have the Gatsby CLI installed yet, do it first.
npm install --global gatsby-cli
The Gatsby CLI uses Node and npm which you will also need installed. More information can be found on GatsbyJS.org.
🚀 Getting Started
Install the starter using the Gatsby new command.
gatsby new landing-page https://github.com/gillkyle/gatsby-starter-landing-page.git
Navigate into the project directory and launch the site.
cd landing-page && gatsby develop
The site will be opened up in your default browser on http://localhost:8000
Edit code in the
/src, save your changes, and they'll reload instantly in the browser.
🧐 What's inside?
The minimal landing page starter comes with a few plugins installed already, but it's main focus is on staying simple and looking clean. These things are included by default:
🖼Gatsby Image: images added to the
src/imagesfolder are automatically optimized by the
gatsby-imageplugin and can be pulled into components with lazy loading and blur up effects
📊Analytics: add your Google Analytics tracking id to
gatsby-config.jsto automatically begin tracking visitors to the site
🗺Sitemap: any new pages added to the site are automically assembled together into a sitemap through
🎨Color Theme: the
src/styles/constants.jsfile contains a set of colors and default styles that are applied inline to components on the site that can be overriden with your own styles

If you just want to see a site online real fast you can deploy a copy of the site to Netlify with this button.
