Quick Start πŸš€

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 https://github.com/wangonya/the-plain-gatsby

Start developing.

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

cd my-blog/
gatsby develop

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/about.md. 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.
