When starting a site for the first time, Gatsby asks for any starters it should use. A ‘starter’ is a ready-made package with a set of features ready to go. They can be a great way to try out Gatsby without having to set anything up.
Here are some starters that are great for a few common scenarios.
Gatsby Starter Deck github.com/fabe/gatsby-starter-deck It’s always a good idea to have presentation slides hosted online. What’s even better is if these can be cached offline and easily digested for use in bookmarking sites. This starter will generate slides for content written in Markdown.
Gatsby Docs Starter github.com/ericwindmill/gatsby-starter- docs API developers will always need a way to be able to document their code. This starter provides a layout suited to quick referencing and code snippets. The included components use metadata from each page in order to create a table of contents to help visitors find the content they need.
Starter Netlify CMS github.com/netlify-templates/gatsby-starter-netlify- cms While static site generators are useful for developers creating websites, they are a barrier to less technical users who need a CMS to update the site. The static site hosting service Netlify has a solution to generate fresh Gatsby builds using its CMS. This starter sets up all the necessary hooks to tie into its system.
