Setting Up Gatsby

November 12, 2020 | 0 Comments | 1 min read

I am moving from a Wordpress site and converting all my old posts. Which is not that many!

I chose Gatsby as I have done a lot of work with React over the past few years.

The whole install process was very straight forward. You will need node and npm. I won’t go into details here.

I used the Gatsby Blog Starter https://github.com/gatsbyjs/gatsby-starter-blog. This means you can use the following command

gatsby new blog https://github.com/gatsbyjs/gatsby-starter-blog

Which will create a new directory (blog) and scaffold out a pretty good blog template.

Then all you need to do is run

gatsby develop

Which will open up a dev instance on port 8000 by default. http://localhost:8000

Happy blogging!
