Easily add Cookiebot on a Gatsby site. Especially useful when using Cookiebot’s manual mode and gatsby-plugin-google-tagmanager.

Main features

  • Adds Cookiebot script to the page <head>
  • Blocks Google Tag Manager’s <script> and <noscript> tags created by gatsby-plugin-google-tagmanager when using Cookiebot’s manual mode by setting data-cookieconsent="statistics" and type="text/plain" to the tags

How to use

Install package

npm i gatsby-plugin-cookiebot

Configure gatsby-config.js

plugins: [
    resolve: "gatsby-plugin-cookiebot",
    options: {
      // Required. Site's Cookiebot ID.
      cookiebotId: "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000",
      // Optional. Turns on Cookiebot's manual mode. Defaults to false.
      manualMode: true,
      //  Optional. Skip blocking of GTM. Defaults to true if manualMode is set to true.
      blockGtm: false,
      // Optional. Enables plugin in development. Will cause gatsby-plugin-google-tagmanager to thrown an error when pushing to dataLayer. Defaults to false.
      includeInDevelopment: true,
      // Optional. Debug mode for plugin development. Defaults to false.
      pluginDebug: true,

Make sure gatsby-plugin-google-tagmanager is listed before gatsby-plugin-cookiebot

This plugin doesn’t provide a way to inject the cookie declaration to your site because there’s multiple ways to achieve the same thing. Here’s a useful snippet you can copy that ensures the declaration is loaded on internal site navigation events.

import React from "react";

isBrowser = () => typeof window !== "undefined";

const COOKIEBOT_DECLARATION_WRAPPER_ID = "cookiebot-declaration-wrapper";

export function CookieDeclaration() {
  React.useEffect(() => {
    // Inject Cookiebot declaration
    if (isBrowser()) {
      const cookiebotCookieDeclaratioScript = document.createElement("script");
      cookiebotCookieDeclaratioScript.src =
      cookiebotCookieDeclaratioScript.type = "text/javascript";
      cookiebotCookieDeclaratioScript.async = true;

      const cookiebotWrapperEl = document.getElementById(
      if (cookiebotWrapperEl) {
  }, []);

  return <div id={COOKIEBOT_DECLARATION_WRAPPER_ID}></div>;
