@gridsome/source-filesystem

Transform files into content that can be fetched with GraphQL in your components.

Install

  • yarn add @gridsome/source-filesystem
  • npm install @gridsome/source-filesystem

Usage

module.exports = {
  plugins: [
    {
      use: '@gridsome/source-filesystem',
      options: {
        typeName: 'BlogPost',
        path: './content/blog/**/*.md',
      }
    }
  ],
  templates: {
    BlogPost: '/blog/:year/:month/:day/:slug'
  }
}

A filesystem source will also require a transformer in order to parse the files. The example above is looking for a set of Markdown files, so in order to let Gridsome understand the content of the files, you must install @gridsome/transformer-remark as a dev dependency in your project. Gridsome will automatically transform the files for you as long as a transformer that supports your files is found in your package.json.

Options

path

  • Type: string required

Where to look for files. Should be a glob pattern.

typeName

  • Type: string
  • Default: 'FileNode'

The GraphQL type and template name. A .vue file in src/templates must match the typeName to have a template for it.

baseDir

  • Type: string

The base directory for all files. The baseDir will not be included when routes are generated from the file paths. The option defaults to the project root directory if omitted.

The following example will look for all markdown files inside the /content/blog directory. A file located at /content/blog/hello-world.md will generate a /hello-world route.

module.exports = {
  plugins: [
    {
      use: '@gridsome/source-filesystem',
      options: {
        baseDir: './content/blog',
        path: '*.md'
      }
    }
  ]
}

pathPrefix

  • Type: string

Prefix paths generated from the file location. The example below looks for markdown files inside /content/blog/*.md. And a file named blog-post.md in that folder will get a path like /blog/my-post. This option is excluded if a route is defined.

module.exports = {
  plugins: [
    {
      use: '@gridsome/source-filesystem',
      options: {
        baseDir: './content/blog',
        pathPrefix: '/blog',
        path: '*.md'
      }
    }
  ]
}

refs

  • Type: object

Define fields that will have a reference to another node. The referenced typeName is expected to exist. But a content type can also be created automatically if you set create: true. Read more about references.

module.exports = {
  plugins: [
    {
      use: '@gridsome/source-filesystem',
      options: {
        refs: {
          // Reference to existing authors by id.
          author: 'Author',
          // Create a Tag content type and its nodes automatically.
          tags: {
            typeName: 'Tag',
            create: true
          }
        }
      }
    }
  ]
}

index

  • Type: Array
  • Default: ['index']

Define which files to consider as index files. These files will not have their filename appear in its route path and will become the main index.html file of the directory. Make sure there is only one possible index file per directory if multiple index names are defined. This option is only used if there is no dynamic route defined.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
