Theme Features

Data Sources

Sourcing data from anywhere is the core feature that makes Gatsby a powerful static site generator. In FlexiBlog GatsbyJS theme, we aimed to embrace this feature to provide a complete JAMStack solution and have added support for multiple data sources including Contentful CMS, Strapi CMS, Netlify CMS, Sanity CMS, and File System Markdown files with MDX support.

Modular React Components

Gatsby uses React for building websites. React is a library for building user interfaces via components. React components are purely presentation chunk of Javascript, CSS, and HTML code that can be reused, shared and combined to create pages and templates in GatsbyJS. In FlexiBlog you’re not limited to the pre-built templates. We’ve created a UI library with React components that you can use to easily create a GatsbyJS blog template with a custom layout. Mix and match the components we’ve provided and you’ll have a completely different and unique template for your blog.

Pre-built Gatsby Templates

With FlexiBlog you’ll get multiple pre-made templates for different use-cases including agency blog, education, medical, personal, fashion and beauty, science, news/magazine, and two minimal blog templates. All pre-made templates come with a Gatsby starter and you can quickly start a new blog site with one single command in the terminal. Of-course the templates can be used for other purposes and if you need a unique layout, you’re free to use our React components to build your own template.

Value-added 3rd Party Integrations

JAMStack is a new way of building websites and apps that delivers better performance, higher security, lower cost of scaling, and better developer experience. In our Gatsby theme, we’ve integrated optional but essential features that you’ll need for building your blog using free 3rd party APIs. With Algolia’s integration, you’ll have a live fast search experience in your blog. With Disqus integration, your site visitors can engage in discussions about your articles and with MailChimp integration, you can deepen your relationship with your readers and keep them updated with new article releases.

Developer Friendly

We built FlexiBlog with developers in mind and followed the conventions and standards suggested by the GatsbyJS team so you can apply techniques introduced by Gatsby team such as Component Shadowing effortlessly. With Theme-UI library used in our Gatsby theme, you can easily customize the theme by overriding Theme-UI values without losing styling consistency.
