Installation

To use this theme in your Gatsby sites, follow these instructions:

  1. Install the theme
npm install --save @rennehir/gatsby-theme-personal-site
  1. Add the theme to your gatsby-config.js:
module.exports = {
  plugins: ["@rennehir/gatsby-theme-personal-site"],
}
  1. Add content to the /content directory
  2. Start your site
gatsby develop

Adding content to your site

This theme follows a content directory structure like this:

content
  +- assets
  +- blog
  +- general
      +- footer
          +- index.yml
      +- hero
          +- index.yml
  +- portfolio
  +- references
  +- services

Add all your assets to the assets directory and you can reference them from other documents.

The general directory holds information that is used for example in hero or footer

content/general/hero/index.yml

greeting: "Hello, I am"
name: "Name"
subtitle: "– a web developer"
image: "../../assets/{your-image}.svg"
imageAltText: "Web Developer"

content/general/footer/index.yml

Add urls to your social media profiles

facebook: ""
