Getting Started

Install this starter (assuming Gatsby is installed and updated) by running from your CLI:

gatsby new YourProjectName https://github.com/6stars/gatsby-docs
npm install # or yarn install
npm run develop # or gatsby develop

Or you can fork the project, make your changes there and merge new features when needed.


git clone https://github.com/6stars/gatsby-docs YourProjectName # Clone the project
cd YourProjectname
rm -rf .git # So you can have your own changes stored in VCS.
npm install # or yarn install
npm run develop # or gatsby develop


Edit the export object in data/SiteConfig:

  siteTitle: '****** DOCS', // Site title.
  siteTitleShort: '6star DOCS', // Short site title for homescreen (PWA). Preferably should be under 12 characters to prevent truncation.  
  siteTitleAlt: '****** DOCS', // Alternative site title for SEO.
  siteDescription: "for ******",
  siteLogo: 'https://s.gravatar.com/avatar/cb868bd3f76af9631aa55aca22615673?size=1024', // Logo used for SEO and manifest.
  siteUrl: 'https://6stars.netlify.com', // Domain of your website without pathPrefix.
  siteRss: '/rss.xml', // Path to the RSS file.
  pathPrefix: '/', // Prefixes all links.
  siteGATrackingID: '', // Tracking code ID for google analytics.
  defaultCategoryID: 'api', // Default category for docs.
  dateFromFormat: 'MM-DD-YYYY', // Date format used in the frontmatter.
  dateFormat: 'MM/DD/YYYY', // Date format for display.
  userName: '******-user', // Username to display in the author segment.
  copyright: 'Copyright © 2018. ******', // Copyright string for the footer of the website and RSS feed.

You can also optionally set pathPrefix:

module.exports = {
  // Note: it must *not* have a trailing slash.
  pathPrefix: "/docs" // Prefixes all links. For cases when deployed to example.github.io/docs/.

NOTE: user*, copyright are optional and won't render if omitted.

WARNING: Make sure to edit static/robots.txt to include your domain for the sitemap!


First of all, make sure to edit static/admin/config.yml and add your GitHub/GitLab/NetlifyId credentials:

  name: git-gateway  # Refer to https://www.netlifycms.org/docs/authentication-backends/ for auth backend list and instructions
  branch: master  # Branch to update

media_folder: static/assets
public_folder: assets

  - name: "doc"
    label: "****** Doc"
    folder: "content"
    create: true
    slug: "{{slug}}"
      - {label: "Title", name: "title", widget: "string"}
      - {label: "Publish Date", name: "date", widget: "datetime"}
      - {label: "Slug", name: "slug", widget: "string"}
      - {label: "Category", name: "category", widget: "string"}
      - {label: "Tags", name: "tags", widget: "list"}
      - {label: "Body", name: "body", widget: "markdown"}

You can visit /admin/ after and will be greeted by a login dialog (depending on the auth provider you ave chosen above).
