Gatsby Starters

The Gatsby CLI tool lets you install “starters”. These are partially built sites preconfigured to help you get moving faster on creating a certain type of site.

When creating a new site, you can optionally specify a starter to base your new site on e.g.

gatsby new [SITE_DIRECTORY] [URL_OF_STARTER_GITHUB_REPO]

For example, to quickly create a blog using Gatsby, you could install the Gatsby Starter Blog by running:

gatsby new blog https://github.com/gatsbyjs/gatsby-starter-blog

This downloads the files and initializes the site by running npm install

If you don’t specify a custom starter, your site will be created from the default starter.

There are several starters that have been created. Create a PR to include yours!
