Before starting your site make sure that the following requirements are fulfilled:

  1. Be sure to have a content directory within your Gatsby installation

  2. Be sure to have a tags.yml file within the content directory with at least one tag, e.g.

    - name: Uncategorized
      color: #000
      icon: null
      featured: false
  3. Be sure for your markdown files to include proper frontmatter content, e.g.:

title: "Post title"
path: "/path-to-your-post"
tags: ["Theme"]
featuredImage: "./cover.jpg"
excerpt: Descriptive description.
