Make sure to follow the following rules:
- Truly headless: This means your CMS must interact with content and data, and cannot be responsible for building the site.
- Stick to the format: Fill out all the same fields as the other CMS's in
- Short description: Keep all the details for the body text, keep the description for the overview page short and sweet.
Be sure that you have the latest node and npm installed, then clone this repository and run:
npm install npm start
In order to successfully retrieve Twitter followers and GitHub stars, you will need authentication keys for both services.
For GitHub you'll need is a personal access token with permission to create Gists. This can be generated at
https://github.com/settings/tokens. For Twitter, you need to create an application at
https://apps.twitter.com to get the necessary tokens. When deploying, you must set the environment
variables per the example below. If you are developing locally, you can set
these in a
.env file at the root of the repo.
HEADLESS_CMS_GITHUB_TOKEN=examplekey123abc HEADLESS_CMS_TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY=examplekey231abc HEADLESS_CMS_TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET=examplekey321abc HEADLESS_CMS_TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_KEY=examplekey231abc HEADLESS_CMS_TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET=examplekey321abc
GitHub and Twitter data is cached in the
.tmp directory, and online in a Gist. If neither has data
newer than 24 hours old, fresh data is fetched from GitHub and Twitter. Fetching caching occur
automatically during the build.
Then visit http://localhost:3000/ - React Static will automatically reload when changes occur.
To test a production build locally, do:
npm run stage npm run serve
To run a production build for deployment:
npm run build
