gatsby-source-drupal

Source plugin for pulling data (including images) into Gatsby from Drupal sites.

Pulls data from Drupal 8 sites with the Drupal JSONAPI module installed.

An example site built with the headless Drupal distro ContentaCMS is at https://using-drupal.gatsbyjs.org/

apiBase Option allows changing the API entry point depending on the version of jsonapi used by your Drupal instance. The default value is jsonapi, which has been used since jsonapi version 8.x-1.0-alpha4.

Install

npm install --save gatsby-source-drupal

How to use

// In your gatsby-config.js
module.exports = {
  plugins: [
    {
      resolve: `gatsby-source-drupal`,
      options: {
        baseUrl: `https://live-contentacms.pantheonsite.io/`,
        apiBase: `api`, // optional, defaults to `jsonapi`
      },
    },
  ],
}

Basic Auth

You can use basicAuth option if your site is protected by basicauth. First, you need a way to pass environment variables to the build process, so secrets and other secured data aren’t committed to source control. We recommend using dotenv which will then expose environment variables. Read more about dotenv and using environment variables here. Then we can use these environment variables and configure our plugin.

// In your gatsby-config.js
module.exports = {
  plugins: [
    {
      resolve: `gatsby-source-drupal`,
      options: {
        baseUrl: `https://live-contentacms.pantheonsite.io/`,
        apiBase: `api`, // optional, defaults to `jsonapi`
        basicAuth: {
          username: process.env.BASIC_AUTH_USERNAME,
          password: process.env.BASIC_AUTH_PASSWORD,
        },
      },
    },
  ],
}

How to query

You can query nodes created from Drupal like the following:

{
  allArticle {
    edges {
      node {
        title
        internalId
        created(formatString: "DD-MMM-YYYY")
      }
    }
  }
}
