// In your gatsby-config.js
module.exports = {
  plugins: [
    {
      resolve: `gatsby-source-faker`,
      // derive schema from faker's options
      options: {
        schema: {
          name: ["firstName", "lastName"],
        },
        count: 3, // how many fake objects you need
        type: "NameData", // Name of the graphql query node
      },
