Dealing with the Limitations of Gatsby Source Drupal


Brian Perry

Sa 15:45pm Room: Aten Design Group Lecture Hall

Gatsby.js is a self described "blazing-fast" static site generator for React. With the gatsby-source-drupal plugin you can easily pull data from a Drupal 8 site using the JSON API Module. While this sounds like a match made in heaven, I’ve noticed that many others in the Drupal community aren’t using gatsby-source-drupal when building sites with Gatsby. After rebuilding my site using Gatsby and gatsby-source-drupal I’ve encountered some limitations that I think might explain this trend.

This session will review:

  • The challenges I’ve encountered with using Gatsby and Drupal together
  • Difficulties using the often file and markdown focused plugins offered in the Gatsby plugin ecosystem.
  • Tips and tricks for using Drupal with Gatsby in a way that can take better advantage of other powerful Gatsby plugins.
  • Advantages to using Gatsby with Drupal and why I am likely to stick with it.
