Gatsby Airtable Advanced Starter

This is a blog starter skeleton for Gatsby v2 using Airtable as source.

This project aims to provide a minimal base for building advanced GatsbyJS powered blog, without UI limitations.

NOTE: This project is based on Gatsby Advanced Starter, thanks Vagr9K for the inspiration.

Demo

🚀 Here a LIVE DEMO of the site.

These are the airtable bases used to generate posts and authors:

Getting Started

Fork the project or clone it:

git clone https://github.com/marcomelilli/gatsby-airtable-advanced-starter YourProjectName # Clone the project
cd YourProjectname
rm -rf .git # So you can have your own changes stored in VCS.
npm install # or yarn install
gatsby develop 

create files .env.development and .env.production to set Airtable config:

AIRTABLE_API_KEY=XXXXXXXXXXX
AIRTABLE_BASE=XXXXXXXXXXXX
AIRTABLE_TABLE_NAME=Blog
AIRTABLE_TABLE_NAME_LINKED=Authors

NOTE: remember to not commit these files in your repository for security reason.

Now you are ready to start editing the data/SiteConfig.js.
