Introducing the new
gatsby-source-bludit npm package for Gatsby!
Gatsby, is an open-source static website generator (SSG) that is based on the frontend development framework React and makes use of Webpack and GraphQL technology. It can be used to build static sites that are progressive web apps, follow the latest web standards, and optimized for speed and security.
One of the really cool things about Gatsby is the ability to utilize external APIs to pull in data. To allow this for Bludit I have created a new "source" plugin to allow anyone to easily pull in content from their Bludit site with ease.
This requires the use of the Bludit API to be activated.
Hopefully this will be helpful to someone looking to leverage the power of Gatsby and Bludit.
I have made some improvements to the demo. It now has a much cleaner design and pulls more data including tags and a portion of the post content into the"preview" cards.
The gatsby-source-bludit plugin now supports multiple Bludit API endpoints as well as the ability to set the number of items to return when using the "pages" endpoint.
