Enable Gatsby watch mode for drafts
We have enabled the watch mode in the
gatsby-source-sanity plugin, which means that your frontend will automatically update with content changes whenever you publish them. If you want the frontend to show content changes in real time, you must do the following:
- Go to manage.sanity.io and find your project (or run the command
sanity managein the studio folder)
- Navigate to Settings->API and scroll down to the Tokens section
- Add a new token and give it read privileges.
- Copy the
.env-examplefile to a file called
- Add your new token to the key:
If you restart the local development server, it will now show unpublished changes from the Studio. Note that the
.env file is ignored by Git, because the token gives access to unpublished content in the API.
This project demos Sanity.io with Gatsby using our source plugin. It's a good starter for a simple company site, a portfolio site for an agency or a personal blog with an attached portfolio.
We tried to strike a balance between a useful example and a minimal footprint to make it easier to iterate on design and content model. Let us know should you have questions!
npm start # Studio at http://localhost:3000 # Web frontend at http://localhost:8000 # GraphiQL explorer at http://localhost:8000/___graphql
We wrote a blog post about how to use this example, but if you would like to just start tinkering:
- The Sanity Studio keeps its schemas in
./studio/schemas. We will hot reload the editor when you edit them so just start experimenting. Read more about our schemas here.
- We followed Gatsby conventions and you can read all about them here.
- If you want Gatsby to not throw errors on missing fields for unpopulated data you need to redeploy the GraphQL API so we can generate schemas –
sanity graphql deploy
# Deploy a GraphQL API and schema to Sanity npm run graphql-deploy # Deploy the Sanity Studio to *.sanity.studio npm run sanity-deploy # Build & deploy to Zeit's Now npm run now-deploy
Deploy on Netlify: If you want to deploy the Gatsby site to Netlify we added a netlify.toml config for you.
Fork or clone the example to your GitHub account. After adding your repo to Netlify you’ll get automatic builds & deploys when pushing to master. You can also add a webhook to get deploys on content changes.
