Gatsby Source Ghost

Source plugin for pulling data into Gatsby.js from the Ghost Public API.

Install

npm install --save gatsby-source-ghost

How to use

You need to specify three properties in your gatsby-config.js:

{
   resolve: `gatsby-source-ghost`,
   options: {
       apiUrl: `https://<your-subdomain>.ghost.io`,
       clientId: `ghost-frontend`,
       clientSecret: `<your client secret>`
   }
}

apiUrl
The admin or API URL for your Ghost site. For Ghost(Pro) customers this is your .ghost.io domain. For self hosters it is your main domain unless you have a separate admin url configured. Note that this URL should be served over HTTPS.

clientId
This is almost always ghost-frontend, unless you have a custom client, which is not yet fully supported by Ghost.

clientSecret
The secret for the ghost-frontend client, which can be found just above the </head> tag on any page on your Ghost site.

How to query

There are 4 node types available from Ghost: Post, Page, Author and Tag.
Documentation for the full set of fields made available for each resource type can be found in the Public API docs.

Posts and Pages have the same properties.

You can query Post nodes created from Ghost like the following:

{
  allGhostPost(sort: { order: DESC, fields: [published_at] }) {
    edges {
      node {
        id
        slug
        title
        html
        published_at
        ...
        tags {
          id
          slug
          ...
        }
        primary_tag {
          id
          slug
          ...
        }
        authors {
          id
          slug
          ...
        }       
      }
    }
  }
}

You can query Page nodes created from Ghost like the following:

{
  allGhostPage {
    edges {
      node {
        id
        slug
        title
        html
        ...
      }
    }
  }
}

You can query Tag nodes created from Ghost like the following:

{
  allGhostTag {
    edges {
      node {
        id
        slug
        name
        ...
      }
    }
  }
}

You can query Author nodes created from Ghost like the following:

{
  allGhostAuthor {
    edges {
      node {
        id
        slug
        name
        ...
      }
    }
  }
}
