Getting Started

Check your development environment! You'll need Node.js, the Gatsby CLI and node-gyp installed. The official Gatsby website also lists two articles regarding this topic:

To copy and install this starter run this command (with "project-name" being the name of your folder you wish to install it in):

gatsby new project-name
cd project-name
npm run develop

Adding new features/plugins

You can add other features by having a look at the official plugins page

Building your site

npm run build

Copy the content of the public folder to your webhost or use a website like Netlify which automates that for you.

Attention: You also need to edit static/robots.txt to include your domain!
