Make sure to follow the following rules:
- Static Site Generation: No "flat-file CMSs" or similar tools. The program must be able to output a static website that can be hosted in places like Netlify, S3 or Github Pages.
- Open Source: The generator must have a public repository on Github that we can link to and pull in stats from.
- Stick to the format: Fill out all the same fields as the other static site generators 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 repository stars (GitHub or GitLab), you will need authentication keys for these services.
For GitHub, all you'll need is a personal access token with the repo and gist scopes. This can be
generated at https://github.com/settings/tokens. For GitLab, you'll also need a personal access
token. This can be generated at https://gitlab.com/profile/personal_access_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.
GITHUB_TOKEN=examplekey123abc GITLAB_TOKEN-examplekey123abc TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY=examplekey231abc TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET=examplekey321abc TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_KEY=examplekey231abc TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET=examplekey321abc
GitHub, GitLab, 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, GitLab, and Twitter. Fetching
caching occur automatically during the build.
Then visit http://localhost:8000/ - Gatsby will automatically reload when changes occur.
To test a production build locally, do:
