gatsby-source-filesystem

Plugin for creating File nodes from the file system. The various “transformer” plugins transform File nodes into various other types of data e.g. gatsby-transformer-json transforms JSON files into JSON data nodes and gatsby-transformer-remark transforms markdown files into MarkdownRemark nodes from which you can query an HTML representation of the markdown.

Install

npm install --save gatsby-source-filesystem

How to use

// In your gatsby-config.js
plugins: [
  // You can have multiple instances of this plugin
  // to read source nodes from different locations on your
  // filesystem.
  //
  // The following sets up the Jekyll pattern of having a
  // "pages" directory for Markdown files and a "data" directory
  // for `.json`, `.yaml`, `.csv`.
