Gatsby & Drupal Sitting in a Tree

A presentation at DrupalCamp Atlanta 2019 in in Atlanta, GA, USA by Shane Thomas

This is the session to attend if you are considering developing a Gatsby website using Drupal as a backend content source. We will cover static-site generation with Gatsby, compare and contrast different content sources (or backends), and even show a demo of live content preview capabilities between Gatsby & Drupal.

This session is intended for beginners looking for a high level overview of the design/development process. We will live demo a working Gatsby / Drupal site while providing an overview of:

  • How to structure your data and fields on your Drupal website
  • How to pull content into Gatsby from your Drupal website using GraphQL
  • How to design and structure dynamic pages and lists of pages in Gatsby
  • How content changes can be live previewed using Gatsby Cloud
  • Having some basic knowledge of Javascript / React will help when looking over code examples, but is not required.



The following resources were mentioned during the presentation or are useful additional information.
