Quick Start

Get started

Gatsby is a blazing fast static site generator for React.

Install Gatsby's command line tool

npm install -g gatsby@next

Using the Gatsby CLI

  1. Create a new site (with the blog starter). gatsby new test gatsbyjs/gatsby-starter-blog#1.0
  2. cd beta-test-gatsby-site
  3. gatsby develop — Gatsby will start a hot-reloading development environment accessible at localhost:8000
  4. Try editing markdown and javascript files. Saved changes will live reload in the browser.

Work through the tutorial
