To get started to invoke rows, columns, modals, header and footer wrapper standard structure on your theme, you can follow these steps:

  plugins: [`gatsby-layout-builder`],
// gatsby-config.js
  1. Add the plugin correctly

Inside a page or component invoke Layout type=“COMPONENT”.

// type="BODY"
<BodyContainer subAgent={children} opt={opt} />
// type="FOOTER"
<FooterContainer subAgent={children} opt={opt} />
// type="HEADER"
<HeaderContainer opt={opt} />
// type="ROW"
<RowContainer opt={opt} subAgent={children} />
// type="SIDEBAR"
<SidebarContainer opt={opt} subAgent={children} />
