Making A New Post For My Site In Gatsby

October - 2021

This was the start of my process for making posts in Gatsby. As of Nov. 2021, I'm no longer using Gatsby. I'm using NextJS instead.

To write a new post:

  • Update /Users/alans/workshop/www.alanwsmith.com--gatsby--v1/.env.development to change:

      SITE_CONTENT_DIR=/Users/alans/workshop/test-content
    

    To:

      SITE_CONTENT_DIR=/Users/alans/workshop/site-content
      
      (Note: `site-content` not `source-content`)
      
      
      
    
  • Make a new file under:

      /Users/alans/workshop/source-content/YEAR/SLUG/index.md
      
    
  • Contents of the file should be:

---
category: Miscellaneous
date: 2021-04-9T17:25:22-0400
slug: /litmus-test-movies-example
title: Litmus Test Movies ~ Or, How To Know If We're Gonna Be Friends
type: post
