I wanted to make Gatsby work the way I wanted it to work, which turns out to be a little non-trivial.
- I don’t want to be too wedded to a “blog” idea where it’s just an about section and a single blog. Hierarchial trees are great.
- I want a
contentfolder that contains a bunch of markdown or MDX files with frontmater
- I don’t want to have to put slugs in the file names, I just want the file name to determine the path.
- I want to be able to generate queries for the structure of the site easily, including breadcrumbs.
- I want to have titles for each of the pages (specified as the
titlekey in the frontmatter) and I want them to be respected in the navigational elements and breadcrumbs with.
- I want to be able to add dates with a
datekey in the frontmatter and be able to search on them.
- I want to be able to use a
typekey in the frontmatter to select the template because MDX has some weird stuff with it’s native idea of templating and it doesn’t really work the way I wanted it to.
- I also want to be able to make JSX pages that have front matter in them. And I don’t want it to be obvious how the pages.
