The Plain Gatsby

A simple minimalist Gatsby starter for your blog. Demo.

Inspired by Heiswayi Nrird's the-plain.




Quick Start 🚀

  1. Create a Gatsby site.

    Use the Gatsby CLI to create a new site, specifying the default starter.

    # create a new Gatsby site using the-plain-gatsby starter
    gatsby new my-blog
  2. Start developing.

    Navigate into your new site’s directory and start it up.

    cd my-blog/
    gatsby develop
  3. Open the source code and start editing!

    Your site is now running at http://localhost:8000!

    Note: You'll also see a second link: http://localhost:8000/___graphql. This is a tool you can use to experiment with querying your data. Learn more about using this tool in the Gatsby tutorial.

    Open the my-blog directory in your code editor of choice and edit src/pages/ Save your changes and the browser will update in real time!

    Edit gatsby.config.js to update site metadata.

    Add blog posts in markdown in src/pages/blog/. Each blog should have a title and date frontmatter. Example blog posts have been provided.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
