Quick start

1. Start the project from the template using Flotiq CLI

npm i –g flotiq-cli 
flotiq start [flotiqReadWriteApiKey] flotiq-gatsby-blog-1 https://github.com/flotiq/flotiq-gatsby-blog-1.git
  • \flotiqApiKey\ — Read and write API key to your Flotiq account
  • \projectName\ — project name or project path (if you wish to start a project in or import data from the current directory — use \.\)

2. You can also start the project from the template using Gatsby CLI

gatsby new my-hello-world-starter https://github.com/flotiq/flotiq-gatsby-blog-1.git

3. Configure the application

The next step is to configure our application to know from where it has to fetch the data.

You need to create a file called \.env.development\ inside the root of the directory, with the following structure:


4. Start developing

Navigate into your new site’s directory and start it up.

cd flotiq-gatsby-blog-1/ gatsby develop

This step is optional and is not necessary if you used flotiq-cli to start the project.

If you wish to import example data to your account, before running \gatsby develop\ run:

flotiq import [flotiqApiKey] .

It will add two example objects to your Flotiq account.

Note: You need to put your Read and write API key as the \flotiqApiKey\ for import to work. You don’t need any content types in your account.

5. Open the source code and start editing!

Your site is now running at http://localhost:8000!

Note: You’ll also see a second link: \http://localhost:8000/___graphql\. This is a tool you can use to experiment with querying your data.

Open the \flotiq-gatsby-blog-1\ directory in your code editor of choice and edit \src/templates/index.js\. Save your changes and the browser will update in real-time!

6. Manage your content using Flotiq editor

You can now easily manage your content using Flotiq editor
