๐Ÿญ My blog built with Gatsby. Neat.

Table of Contents


๐ŸŽ‰ Features

The whole blog is a React-based Single Page App built with Gatsby v2.

๐ŸŽ† EXIF extraction

Automatically extracts EXIF metadata from my photos on build time. For minimal overhead, fast-exif parses every JPG file upon Gatsby file node creation and adds the extracted EXIF data as node fields.

This way, EXIF data is only extracted at build time and can be simply queried with GraphQL at run time.

In the end looks like this, including location display with pigeon-maps:

๐Ÿ’ฐ Cryptocurrency donation via Web3/MetaMask

Lets visitors say thanks with Bitcoin or Ether. Uses web3.js for sending Ether transactions via MetaMask, Brave or Mist. Component listens to account & network changes and adapts accordingly.

As a fallback, QR codes are generated with react-qr-svg from the addresses defined in config.js.

๐Ÿ“ˆ Matomo (formerly Piwik) analytics tracking

Site sends usage statistics to my own Matomo installation. To make this work in Gatsby, I created and open sourced a plugin which is in use on this site.

gatsby-redirect-from

๐Ÿ’Ž Importing SVG assets

All SVG assets under src/images/ will be converted to React components with the help of gatsby-plugin-svgr. Makes use of SVGR so SVG assets can be imported like so:

import { ReactComponent as Logo } from './components/svg/Logo'

<Logo />

๐Ÿฌ Typekit component

Includes a component for adding the Typekit snippet.

โœจ Development

You need to have the following tools installed on your development machine before moving on:

Then install dependencies and start everything up:

npm i
npm start

๐Ÿ”ฎ Linting

ESlint, Prettier, and Stylelint are setup for all linting purposes:

npm run lint

To automatically format all code files:

npm run format
npm run format:css

๐ŸŽˆ Add a new project

npm run new "Hello"

๐Ÿšš Deployment

Automatic deployments are triggered upon successful tests & builds on Travis:

  • push to master initiates a live deployment
  • any Pull Request, and subsequent pushes to it, initiates a beta deployment

The deploy command simply calls the scripts/deploy.sh script, syncing the contents of the public/ folder to S3:

npm run deploy

The deploymeng script can be used locally too, the branch checks are only happening for Travis builds, allowing to deploy any branch from local machine.
