gatsby-transformer-yaml-netlify

Parses YAML files. Supports a data layout that is compatible with netlify-cms.

Prerequisites

You must be using a version of node that supports object rest/spread (e.g v8.6.0).

Install

npm install --save gatsby-transformer-yaml-netlify@alpha

How to use

// In your gatsby-config.js
plugins: [
  `gatsby-transformer-yaml-netlify`,
]

Parsing algorithm

If you have a data layout like so:

data/
    takers/
        a-taker.yml  // value: a
        b-taker.yml  // value: b
    leavers/
        a-leaver.yml // value: a
        b-leaver.yml // value: b

Then four nodes will be created:

[
  {
    value: 'a',
    type: 'TakersYaml'
  },
  {
    value: 'b',
    type: 'TakersYaml'
  },
  {
    value: 'a',
    type: 'LeaversYaml'
  },
  {
    value: 'b',
    type: 'LeaversYaml'
  }
]

How to query

You’d be able to query your takers like:

{
  allTakersYaml {
    edges {
      node {
        value
      }
    }
  }
}

And your leavers like:

{
  allLeaversYaml {
    edges {
      node {
        value
      }
    }
  }
}
