gatsby-redirect-from

npm package Build Status Maintainability Dependabot enabled

🎯 Set redirect urls in your YAML frontmatter within your Gatsby site’s Markdown files. Mimics the behavior of jekyll-redirect-from. https://kremalicious.com/gatsby-redirect-from/

By adding a redirect_from list of URLs to your Markdown file’s YAML frontmatter, this plugin creates client-side redirects for all of them at build time, with Gatsby’s createRedirect used under the hood.

By combining this plugin with gatsby-plugin-meta-redirect, you get simple server-side redirects from your redirect_from lists out of the box. You can also combine it with any other plugin picking up Gatsby createRedirect calls to get proper SEO-friendly server-side redirects for your hosting provider.

Prerequisites

Installation

cd yourproject/
npm i gatsby-redirect-from gatsby-plugin-meta-redirect

Then load the plugin along with e.g. gatsby-plugin-meta-redirect from your gatsby-config.js:

plugins: [
  'gatsby-redirect-from',
  'gatsby-plugin-meta-redirect' // make sure this is always the last one
]

That’s it.

Usage

In your Markdown file’s YAML frontmatter, use the key redirect_from followed by a list:

---
title: Aperture File Types
redirect_from:
  - /new-goodies-aperture-file-types-icons/
  - /goodie-updated-aperture-file-types-v11/
  - /aperture-file-types-v12-released/
  - /2008/04/aperture-file-types/
  # note: trailing slashes are required
---
